While most novelists will tell you it took them at least a year, if not more, to write their masterpiece, there are still plenty of people who are willing to try their imaginations at various challenges, like writing a novel in a month (NaNoWriMo). How about writing one in a weekend? (Okay, a long weekend, but still, is three days enough?)
The 3-Day Novel Contest runs every Labor Day weekend and is open to anyone who wants to give it a try. 72 hours. That’s all you’ve got to produce your work. Just register before the deadline and start thinking about your book. You can prepare a simple outline for the book, but keep it brief—it makes it more challenging that way. Then stock up on coffee, book a hotel room or go to the cottage for some peace and quiet and fire up the laptop!
The first prize is a promise of publication and 2nd and 3rd prizes are money. It’s worth a shot, don’t you think? Give it a try!
