Works of fiction and poetry by friends of Bamboo Ridge Press.

I am born. . . . If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.



These few precious days -- The Great BR Year of the Dragon 100-word contest keeps rocking and rolling : )

Published by BAMBOO BUCKAROO | Saturday, September 01, 2012 5:40 PM



We're perseverating with the 100-word entries this month. And the triggers for your September enjoyment are these seven items from:

Issue Number 37/38: Hilo Rains, by Juliet S. Kono:

"For Comfort"
"Internment "
"Reconciliation"

Issue Number 39/40: The Speed of Darkness, by Rodney Morales

"now we fade to black"
"Tsunamis Within"
"The Ties That Bind"
"Miles Away"

Use one of these prompts to trigger your 100-word piece.

Rules:

1. You can submit one entry per month. All July entries must be posted on the Bamboo Shoots page of the BRP site between September 1 and September 30 at 2:00 p.m. HST.


2. Entries can be prose (including super short stories, nonfiction essay-lets, or whatever you write), poetry, or playlets -- or any type of hybrid writing you dream up, and entries MUST be 100 words OR LESS.

Remember -- no joke -- if you want to do paragraph indentations to make it easier for the judges to read your piece : ), put the [sp5 ] tag -- no spaces -- in front of the line you want to indent five spaces.

And no joke plus, don't forget to click the "Year of the Dragon Contest" button for your entry.


3. Every entry must have a title : )


4. In the section below the title where it says:

A blurb about your piece or a good quote from your piece:

You MUST -- REALLY NOT KIDDING -- include your word count.

Your entry should look like this:

Title: Rope

A blurb about your piece or a good quote from your piece: 98 words

Body:

      My little sister thought she was a cowgirl. . . . blah blah blah . . . By the time my mom was able to get the rope off my neck, my face was a deep purple.


5. Winners will be announced with all possible BR speed after 2:00 p.m. HST, September 30th, and they'll win Bamboo Bucks credit to spend in the BRP online bookstore. WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!


6. Don't forget that 29 entries from July 2010 through June 2011 were selected for publication in the upcoming landmark 100th issue of BAMBOO RIDGE. So you never know. Your piece might be published in a future issue of BAMBOO RIDGE : )

Good luck to you, and write your smurfin smurf off : )
