The One Scene, One Page, Three Word competition winds up on November 25th, so get ‘er done and turned in by 11:59pm PST on the 25th!

This month’s keywords:

General Guidelines
Write a (strictly enforced) ONE page scene, using the three keywords, entertainingly and in context.
Title your submission (hint: clever titles are appreciated).
All genres are welcome.

Cleverness Guidelines
Make the keywords count – make them pivotal and entertaining to the story, in other words. Of course it is weird and hard to combine three such disparate words. That is the point!

-Don’t simply list the words, as if you taking an inventory.
-Do try tie the words together in a clever way.
-Do know that you are up against some very talented entrants – so raise the bar!

Remember – this is Just Effing Entertain Me – the most subjectively entertaining writer will win. I’m the judge. It’s that simple.

Have a look at what is in my opinion, the best One Scene, One Page, Three Keyword winner ever – written by our own Jared Kelly. The keywords were: Plum, Sweater, Volcano. PlumSweaterVolcano.

November 25th, 11:59PM, PST. The winner will be announced on November 28th, 2012.

The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Amazon, Starbucks or Barnes and Noble AND a free 15 minute Skype chat with Julie Gray.

Last Month’s Winner was Su Hoyle, with her dark and disturbing Monsters of the Deep (keywords: Manta Ray, Geometry, iPhone). Su had this to say when she won: WAHHHHHOOOOOO!
