Auntie Tara's Short Story prompt - March


Now that we've warmed up our short story brain juices, let's try submitting for publication!

I found this worthy cause at Madeline's blog Scribble & Edit. (It has Heather's name written all over it!) It's called Writers for Animals - they are looking for true or fictional, heartwarming animal stories for an anthology to raise money for animals. 1000-4000 words. Your chances for acceptance go up if you write about animals other than dogs (oh, well, mine's about my last doggie) The publication is in Great Britain, but we are eligible to enter from over here. Published is published! And the deadline is March 31. Purrrfect!

Mine will go up Thursday. As always, post a link in the comments here to your story or an excerpt from it. And if you want the details on submitting, email me and I'll forward them to you! (taratylertalks = at = gmail = dot = com)

Looking for some interesting tails, I mean tales =)

I'm terrible at short stories. I can't seem to think in a concentrated story :)

FUN! I need to pop over and take a looksie. I would love to do this. Wonder if I can come up with something worthy. Hmmm - I'm off to brainstorm. :) Glad you shared.

What a great cause. I'm really going to have to think of something. Maybe I'll take my muse to the Humane Society for a visit.
