Ok, I have to ask ... is that a drawing of (a young) Andrew McCarthy?? It sure looks like him.

Do we send our stories first to get the invoice number to pay online.

Harrison, thanks for the information. Prospective entrants should note the requirement (which I think you've listed somewhere) that the word count is to be determined by Microsoft Word. Oddly enough, its program counts an ellipsis as a word, and in my experience other programs will undercount, for reasons that aren't clear.

Re: “Deadline Looms for 16th Annual Boise Weekly Fiction 101 Contest Entries

C. and Tony,

this is Staff Writer Harrison Berry. I'm running the Fiction 101 contest this year. To answer your questions in order: No, there is no theme for the contest. You're free to write about whatever you want. Tony, this is a blind-judged contest, but you're free to put your name on your entryjust know we'll remove it before sending it home with our judges.

Good luck!

Harrison

Should we put our names on the entry, or is the judging blind?

Does "No Lie" refer to the theme of the contest?

Re: “Campfire Stories

Lets clean up our air quality by cleaning up the wildland firefighting industry. They dither around with the fires for as long as possible. It damages our health. It costs more than it should. It denies us use of our wildlands.

Re: “Author Ali Noorani: There Goes The Neighborhood

Why are all these dark skinned foreign guys fascinated with 7 or above white chicks. They lease a Mercedes to get a date with a blonde. Seems kinda racist on their part.

Re: “Community Bookmaking Workshop at BAM

Bookmakers don't "[cheat] gamblers out of their money"--they set odds. It's a mathematical concept. So learn what words mean before you attempt silly wordplay ...

Re: “A Million Steps: Kurt's 500-Mile Journey on the Camino de Santiago

I started your journey 3 days ago in your words, not your steps. I'm 56yrs. old, depressed, struggling each day just to get out of bed. Reading about your walk is waking my soul a day at a time. I go for infusion treatments once a month for Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am also a lesbian Christian & my supposed church of the past 8 years have compared me to murderers! I'm LOST.

Re: “Backstabbing Bitches is Breathtakingly Bad

Wow Josh! I am flattered you reviewed my book. May I add the first book I have ever written in my entire life that I am so proud of. Yes, Josh. It was a dream come true! Writing my very own book. It would make sense to use real life situations (fake people of course) because who else can tell those stories better than I. The editor I hired to review my book would be so pleased to know you took the time to pick apart the punctuation. I read nutrition labels all the time Josh, Don't you know how important they are! Oh, silly me I am using too many exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There Josh, bash it, pick it apart & service it up for supper!!!!!!!!!!
