Hope you're all wrapping up your September entries. For those who want to get a jump on October, here you go. The triggers for October are:

BAMBOO RIDGE Issue Number 41, Winter 1989, New Moon

"This Is America"
"Poetic License"
"lickens"

BAMBOO RIDGE Issue Number 42/43: Pake, Spring/Summer 1989

"The Will of the Gods"
"For You a Lei"
"These Unsaid Things"
"Social Graces"


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 October 1 and October 31 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: Wooden Spoons and Whips

A blurb about your piece or a good quote from your piece: 99 words

Body:

      My moms two favorite spanking implements . . . . blah blah blah . . . I never asked for a Zorro costume again.


5. Winners will be announced with all possible BR speed after 2:00 p.m. HST, October 31st, 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 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 like your mom was gonna give you dirty lickens if you no finish : )
