$10 ENTRY FEE
Send us a story of 11–5,000 words that focuses on this theme: making a sacrifice. You can be tragic, you can be hilarious, you can be ironic, you can write this hanging upside down from a bar—it doesn’t matter. The author of the best entry will receive at least $250. It takes 25 entries to make that happen, but for every entry over 25, they’re boosting the prize by $5. The winning story will also be published. Deadline July 4, 2010.
NOTE: Short fuse on this one, so jump on it. But everyone has a story that involves sacrifice. That's a basic part of plotting almost anything.
DOUBLE NOTE: Argh!!! I'm so stuck on Chapter 10! I need an entire day of just novel to pound this thing out.
