Short-short story contest

The other day, I was doing a Google search for a topic that I now completely forget. But one of the images Google retrieved was this vintage science fiction cover. It was so cool that I just had to share it.

I’m a sucker for octopi. I’m also a sucker for giant man-eating animals. This cover is the best of both worlds. It makes me want to read that story. Heck, it makes me want to write that story. Other people, I assume, feel the same way.

To that end, I’ve decided to hold my first writing contest.

Here’s how it works. Write a short- short story (500 words or less) about that giant octopus. Send it to I’ll pick the winner and post it on the blog in one month’s time. Entries must be received by Wednesday, July 27.

Need more incentive? The winner will also have an octopus adopted in their name via The World Wildlife Fund. You can learn more about the WWF by going here.

So get writing, Internets! Be creative. Have fun. Impress me. Because if you do, you just might save an octopus.
