It's time once again to sign up for March Madness!

Here are the rules, in case it hadn't been sufficiently burned into anyone's gray matter last time:

1) Write twelve (down from the required fifteen last year) polished pieces of prose. There is no length limit, but what you right MUST be a short story - not an essay, not a sentence, but something with a beginning, middle, and end (or some alternative alien plot form).

2) Submit each one as either a Scrap or Deviation, send us a note with a link, and AnaisCortland or I will review it and add it to the March Madness Support Journal.

3) One of the twelve short stories must be a collaboration with another artist. Two prose writers can come together and write two different parts of a story and put 'em together, a poet and a prose writer can join forces for a prose-poem, you can tell an artist, "You create a piece of art and I'll write a story about it," or you can have an artist do illustrations oor character sketches for your story. Fortunately, we have a March Madness Collab Center in our forum this year (bevelled-edge.deviantart.com/j…) to make that much easier.

4) Different chapters of one story do not count as different stories.

I'm in. Some of them might be flash, but I'm in. I've been on a writing binge this year, and personally, I'm enjoying it and would like to keep it up.

Good for you!

Writing binge: One of the few things that is called a binge but that isn't excess (there's no such thing as too much writing!) and isn't bad for you.

Holy Crap! I don't know about that.
