Looking for a Writing Challenge? Try this Quirky Contest
The funny folks over at NaNoWriMo who think it’s not only possible but actually good to write a novel in a month have invited writers to join an equally quirky contest. So get your pens out and get ready to write….
As explained by Executive Director Grant Faulkner:
Intel, W Hotels, and Vice have generously provided a $10,000 matching donation for Camp NaNoWriMo this month. They’ve also invited Wrimos to submit up to ten pages of a script or story by August 30 in ashort film series and competition entitled “Four Stories”. The four winning stories will be filmed by the esteemed Roman Coppola.
The contest poses the kind of challenge only Wrimos can tackle with their spirited imaginations: each story has to be set in a W Hotel and feature an Ultrabook computer as a key character. Hotel for Dogs meets Barton Fink—with the Traveling Shovel of Death making an ominous guest appearance? Get your Plot Bunnies revved up. I’m betting on a NaNoWriMo awards sweep.
