Rule of Three Writing Contest

I've been invited to join in on the Rule of Three writing contest, in which a short story is written over a period weeks using the rule of three. The setting of the story is a town called Renaissance, and it has a history. If you're interested in taking part in the contest, go to . I haven't written a short story in years, maybe ten years or more. So it will be a challenge. I'll be using the story I started on the Platform-Builders Campaigner in a previous post of mine. At this point I have no idea where this story is going, but I'll do some thinking, planning, and executing soon. It'll be a challenge for me, but one I think I'll enjoy. It looks as if I'm going to be writing in a genre I've never written before (except for a story I wrote in high school back in the 60's--that tells you how old I am)--horror. Yikes. I would never have believed it. But, what the heck. I'm so fascinated by Roland Yeoman's blog that I want to try it. Anyway, I'm hoping some of my friends will take part. See you there if the forces are with us.

Nice to meet you. Yep, the Rule Of Three will be a challenge, but I think an exciting one. Looking forward to reading you! RuleOfThreeBlogfest

Jennifer said...

Jolene Perry said...

What a cool idea!!

Peggy Eddleman said...

That sounds exciting! Good luck with it!

Valentina Hepburn said...

Good luck, Richard. Looking forward to reading.

Donna K. Weaver said...

I heard about this one. It's always nice to learn how to do something new. I just wish my time would accommodate it.

BornStoryteller said...

Donna and all: it is not a big time commitment: four stories, no more than 600 words, each, spaced over a full month. You have two days to post each week (Weds/Thurs).

this is shaping up to be fun. Hope you check it out.

I've been trying to curtail some of my blogging activity in order to follow other pursuits and I've got so many posts still waiting to put up that I guess I wlll forgo committing to this blogfest. Sounds like fun though. Good luck with your efforts.

I've seen that advertised at other blogs, but I'm still on the fence. I love the idea but the prefab setting is a little outside my comfort zone.

I also wanted to let you know I've chosen you for The Versatile Blogger Award!!
If you decide to participate please go to my blog for details!
You have an amazing blog!

I also know and love Roland's blog, so it will be interesting to see what you come up with.
