Today, I happened upon a writing contest styled after FIGHT CLUB. For anyone who’s seen the movie, you’ll understand why I was drawn to WRITE CLUB 2016.
Here’s how it works: During the next 7 weeks, WRITE CLUB will pit anonymous 500-word writing samples against each other, designated by a pen name created by the writer. The winners of each bout will advance into elimination rounds, then playoffs, then the penultimate faceoff between two finalists to determine the winner. The writing can be any genre or style (even poetry), from a larger work or from a work of flash fiction. And the winners of each bout are determined by you – WRITE CLUB readers!
Intrigued yet? I was.
But here’s the kicker, TODAY (Friday February 26) is the last day to enter. So, last minute, I’m jumping in the ring, but be warned: I’m not wearing any gloves. I’m doing it WRITE CLUB style, bloody knuckles and all.

Do note: There are 6 rules of Write Club, so make sure you follow them. And even if you don’t enter, you can still vote. The blog gives information on this as well.
So, get ready to rumble. I’m coming for you.
