FIVE MAGIC SPINDLES -- Quick Contest Notice


Participants in the Five Magic Spindles contest should take a moment to check out this quick notice on the Information Page of the Rooglewood Press website. Nothing has changed as far as what YOU need to do on YOUR end, but we wanted to alert you as to a slight change on our end.

So do have a glance and be sure to share the info with any friends you know who are participating in this year's contest!

Best of luck, creative minds. We are rooting for you!

My computer's not reading the notice to me. Is there a way to find out what it says? Sorry about that.

Hard to believe that the deadline for stories is coming so quickly! Best wishes to all the writers.

Anne Elisabeth Stengl said...

Oh, that is odd. Here is the notice for you, Meredith:


Between November 10 and December 20 we will not be processing submission forms. We will begin processing your submission forms again on December 21.

Please keep in mind that, to be eligible for entry, your submission forms must be postmarked no later than December 16. Feel free to send in your forms at any time before that deadline, but keep in mind that we will not be processing forms or requesting your final stories until after December 20.

Thanks for letting us know!
I should probably get that submission form in now, come to think of it . . . I doubt I'll have my story ready to send in before the 20th, but better to get it done.

Meredith said...

Thank you, Mrs. Anne Elisabeth. Think it's nothing on your end. Just silly technology eccentricities! LOL! Anyhow, have a wonderful trip!

I only just started mine... I'm writing it for NaNoWriMo

Thanks for the update, Anne Elisabeth!

I'm working on my story. Slowly. No idea if it will get done in time, but I'm trying my best. I'm a little worried I either committed to this too late in the game, or my idea is going to end up being way too long for the contest. But then again, I'm a terrible at estimating word count, so I'm just focusing on getting the words on the page instead of overthinking things.

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

Whether you obtain moralityB4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
avant-guarde-humility =
withe extraordinarily explosion of maelstrom mellowdramatic??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love –
jump into faith…
and you’ll VitSee with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.
Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
-our Lord Jesus to Saint Gertrude

…think about it, girl…
1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
1-outta-1 shall be Divinely Judged;
1-outta-1 goes in either direction then,
depending how WE sinfull mortals
have lived, is where WE go for eternity:
Seventh-Heaven -or- the Abyss o'Misery.
Yes, dear, life’s extremely tough now;
yet, life’s extremely short now:
then, WE have the length and breadth of eternity
to consider where our decisions have placed U.S.
And Satan’s working overtime to steal your indestructible soul.
Don’t let that sly, smooth, sinfull Liar.
I choose Seventh-Heaven.

I've finally worked out a daily schedule of working on my story. Here's to hoping I'll manage to finish it in time for submission! I'm relieved to see that other commenters above me are kind of in the same boat. c:

I'm so sad! I wish I knew of this sooner! It sounds like such fun. I might write one just to enjoy writing it, its far too late to enter the contest now.

@Angelique Cole -- There will be another contest featuring a different fairy tale in 2016. Watch for the announcement on June 1! :D
