Micro-Fiction Roundup XLVI: Going Solo
October 7, 2011 in Micro-Fiction Roundup
Hi, everyone! I am on my way out to go drink and dance the night away, so I’ll be brief since I know you’re all probably not going to read this until tomorrow morning after your hangovers have subsided to a dull roar. Remember, lots of water and an ibuprofen before you go to sleep. I’ve found sleeping by the toilet eliminates the drunken bobbing and weaving on the way to expel your stomach contents. Yay for Fridays! Anyhow, quick recap of the entries:
- MilitantRubberDucky – Medicine Day
- Perverseus – Spitballs At Noon
- Chillbear Latrigue – Soup Society
- Perverseus – The Fall of Western Civilization
- Chillbear Latrigue – Animal Stratego
- Jamaica007 – Nuances
- Gotta-Have-Cereal – Midnight
- Skahammer – Contradictions of Capitalism
- 5oclockSomewhere – The Sun Shined
- Jamaica007 – Homeless
These were all just great, and I’m glad to see we drew some of our long lost friends out to play. The incomparable Skahammer was our judge; here’s his long, thought out decision on which one of you stole the show:
My pick for the winner of the current MicroFiction contest is perverseus’ “Spitballs at Noon.”
Okay, right then. YAY, Perverseus! Congratulations! Here’s the gavel, don’t violate anybody with it (unless they want you to, of course). Normally, I pick the theme based on the winning entry, however we have a special request inspired by The Duchess‘ The Internet is a Cruel Mistress: Adults Caught Masturbating. Yes, Duchess, you can only blame yourself for this one.
Your entry must be 101 words or less; if you choose to title your piece, the title will not count against your word count. There is no limit on the amount of entries you can submit.
- You will have two weeks to submit an entry; the deadline will be Tuesday nights at midnight. This will give the judge 48 hours to submit his or her selection to me by Thursday night at midnight. (That’s the midnight that leads into Friday, not the midnight that leads Wednesday to Thursday. You’d think some [read: me] would know this. You’d be wrong though.) The deadlines were originally Wednesday and Friday, respectively, but I goofed and now it’s fixed to give the judges and me (mostly me) time to get up the new topic.
- If I don’t receive the judge’s selection by one of the established methods (e-mail, Wordsmoker messaging or Facebook private messaging) I will be forced to make the selection so as not to delay the next week’s competition.
- The winner of Micro-Fiction Roundup automatically assumes the responsibility of judging the next week’s competition. Obviously that person can still submit writing, but can’t pick themselves as the winner. Otherwise we could end up with some sort of ridiculous perpetual judge situation.
- In the interest of keeping tradition, I will try to select themes based upon the previous week’s submissions when possible.
- REMINDER: You are allowed and encouraged to submit multiple entries.
Alright, my harem of lewd and lascivious deviants, go write
about your experiences getting caught those few times complete works of fiction about getting caught rubbing one out.
