Everyday Heroes...the Blogfest!

A couple weeks ago I finally wrote a flash fiction piece for Tony Laplume's Project Mayhem.  Anyway, I wrote a story about the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, which gave me the idea for a new blogfest.

The Everyday Heroes Blogfest!  To borrow from Tony it requires you write a short piece (fiction or nonfiction) of let's say 500 words or less.  The topic should be about violence--gun violence or other forms is up to you.  On March 20 then you post your entry on your blog.  If there are enough entries then I'll gather them together, put them into a little book, and sell it online through my imprint.  The proceeds from that will be donated to charity--a real charity, not the Human Fund.

I put a linky list dealie at the bottom here.  The signup is until March 1st.  That should give you plenty of time to come up with something.  If the linky thing isn't working, then just tell me you're in and leave a link in the comments.

I hope you'll embrace this chance to be an Everyday Hero!

Tomorrow I talk about some Grant Morrison comics...Tony Laplume is so stoked right now!

  1. At first, I thought I wouldn't be able to think of anything, but then I did...and now the post is already done. So I entered. I will be glad to contribute.

  2. If I write something about guns, the conservatives will come out of the walls and call me a fascist.

  3. I'll try to think of something. That's a broad topic, though. :/

    @Michael: Don't they already do that?

    1. Not to my face. They use the "S" word which is "socialist."

      The "F" word has not graced my blog yet.

  4. I get namechecked here all the time! I'm a celebrity I tell ya! So of course I had to link up. But you should know that the particular linky thing you chose seems to come up as a potentially very dangerous site to visit based on certain characteristics that were otherwise not defined...

  5. Awesome. I'm not much of a fiction writer, but I'll give it a shot. I totally support the "Human Fund." ;)

  6. If I left a link, do I still need to leave a comment? And, do I get credit for being metacommenty by commenting about whether I need to leave a comment? Seriously, this could go on forever, because here I commented about commenting about whether I need to leave a comment.
