"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
This is a little too late for me this year, but if it's an annual competition, I'll put it in my diary for May 2013. I love this genre and would very much like to try it out.Helena
Wonderful! Thanks to Janet for posting this notification. To Helena, it is indeed an annual contest; we welcome your submission for next year's contest.
Alas, I do not write novellas. But I LOVE Nero Wolfe. In fact, I named my laptop Nero, and my cell phone Archie.Nero (the laptop) mainly stays at home, is very useful for solving problems, and gets most of his work done from a comfy chair. He CAN go out, but rarely does, other than to the back garden, since I don't have a rooftop garden. Archie (the cell phone) is always on the go, is handy for bringing all the facts home at the end of the day, and keeps in touch with everyone.
Thanks, Janet--I was not aware of this. In fact, I have a detective novella hanging around that, with a little editing, might be a suitable submission. Cool! :)
May 31? Sheesh, I'd better get to work. First, come up with a story...
Novella? I've GOT a novella that is looking for a home. Thanks so much!
