After some careful research on writing contests I have come up with two that I am contemplating. Labour Day weekend September 3 - 5th, 2011 is the Three Day Novel Contest. You can begin writing at midnight on September 3 and submissions are due midnight September 5th. First prize is publication, Second Prize is $500 and Third Prize is $100. All contestants who submit their manuscripts and have completed the 3 day novel contest are given certificates of completion. What a wild ride that competition will be. Just the satisfaction of completing the contest under that kind of pressure is like nothing else I can think of! Here is the link where you can learn everything you need to know about the 3 Day Novel Writing Contest and of course where you can register! Before August 5th the Early Bird Registration Fee is $50 after August 5th the registration fee is $55
The second contest is much less formal. National Novel Writing Month can be found at http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/whatisnano. Nobody reads your completed work but you are aiming to complete a minimum of 50,000 word novel during the month of November. You upload your word counts daily and if you complete the 50,000 word challenge you receive a certificate and web badge. You must register before November 1st for this contest.
I am so excited and overwhelmed with the idea of both contests that I might just have to enter both...lol Anybody out there up for the challenge? Who wants to join me in my madness?
