Contest :: 3-Day Novel Contest

The International 3-Day Novel Contest - the "marathon" of writing, the rite of passage for "I'll-write-a-novel-someday" yakkers, and the scourge of "that's-not-real-writing" critics world wide - is back. To highlight the basic rules: Outlines are permitted prior to the contest; however, the actual writing must begin no earlier than 12:01 a.m., Saturday, September 1st and stop by midnight on Monday, September 3rd. Novels must be postmarked on or before Sept. 7, 2007 to qualify and include a statement, signed by a witness, confirming the novel’s completion over the 2007 Labor Day Weekend. Deadline for preregistration: August 31, 2007

I'm participating this year for the first time, and I can't wait. My whole writer's group and I will be participating together - literally - by spending the weekend in the same house.

We thought this would be a good way to encourage each other during the grueling contest, though now that I've written it out it sounds like madness!
