3-Day Novel Contest: not for the faint of heart

I've always wanted to do this. Not sure I will this year, but wanted to let other babblers know about it.


Can you produce a masterwork of fiction in a mere 72 hours? The 3-Day Novel Contest is your chance to find out. The contest has run every Labour Day Weekend since 1977 and now attracts writers from all over the world. It has been responsible for dozens of published novels, thousands of first drafts, countless good ideas and even a reality TV series. It's a thrill, a grind, a trial-by-deadline and an awesome creative experience. How many crazed plotlines, coffee-stained pages, pangs of doubt and moments of genius will this year's contest bring forth? And what will you think up under pressure?

The 32nd Annual 3-Day Novel Contest takes place September 5 - 7, 2009.

Every year this comes up, and this may be just the thing i need before starting up a trade college course. Thanks again, BCG/Maysie for posting this. If I can drum up 50 dollars I can blow, then I will certainly do this. GET READY FOR DISJOINTED AND TERRIFYING ASPECTS OF MY IMAGINATION.
