Micro Fiction Contest Now Open: Let Me Help Harvest Your Brain

Brain Harvest is now open to submissions for their fight-the-tropes/tropes-are-good microfiction contest, which includes a cash prize and, erm, a moustache. Yes, that’s right–a moustache. Cannae grow one yourself? Now you can have your very own anyway. There is an entry fee, but one hundred percent of it goes back into Brain Harvest being able to pay pro rates to writers.

I have, tragically for you, agreed to be the final arbiter of the quality of yer darn words as the Ultimate Brain Harvest Judge. So choose them words very, very carefully.

Further, I make my own personal pledge to Brain Harvest: if they get over 400 submissions OR the poor dumb bastards slaving away in these literary/genre salt mines get to 300 comments, I will make a donation (of monies) to Brain Harvest.


(Trust this man you should.)

    Well my story is in :)

    So, if I make another 299 comments you’re going to part with some cash, eh?

    BTW that photo above ^
    Your expression is very similar to that of the ‘What am I thinking?’ posting…
    You definitely sure everything is ok in the trouser department?

    Bob :)

    I am beginning to worry a little about this fixation of yours, Bob…

    I swear to win this contest. On the grave of my living father, who sometimes appears to me in the form of G-d, I swear it. (So, 399 submissions left to go.)

    I think you should also consider a donation to the salt miners’ retirement fund.

    well bob, you’d look the same if the blood supply to the top half of your head was being cut off by a piece of elastic band……..

    I’m thinking of throwing out a few insults in the comments section… “something something your mother something something” and the like, just to stoke the flames of debate again. They’ve stopped at 220 comments! Surely we can’t have reached an agreement already! ;)

    Never one to miss the opportunity to stoke…

    Hellbound,
    Anyone can see that isn’t an elastic band but the elastic waist-band from Jeff’s Y Fronts that has risen up…

    Jeff,
    What do you mean… fixation?
