    Writing Contest #114 - "911, What's your emergency?"

    Hey everyone - time for the next Writing Contest/Challenge/Competition!

    Thanks again to Shaun for handling the last one while I was packing/moving/unpacking and studying...


    Then the theme for this one is going to be "911, What's your emergency?" Can be anything related to a 911 call, or leading up to it, starting/ending with it - just as long as you have #911 in your story. Also, there are plenty of emotion-provoking #911 dispatcher stories on the internet that you can look to for inspiration?


    And as per usual PJ rules:

    *Nothing sexual in nature (romantic love scene is OK, but nothing graphic)

    *Nothing Political (or at least real world politics)

    *1-5 Pages in length

    * No published/franchise characters that you haven't created and own the rights to (public domain characters should be OK - just make sure they're public domain)

    * The winner of this contest gets to choose the topic of the next contest.


    DEADLINE: Tuesday, June the 6th 2017

    How are you all doing with this challenge?

    Ten days later and I'm on story idea number 3 - the #911 chatbot story and then alien invasion ideas didn't pan out... At least I realized this before thumbnailing and scripting the plots - now to hopefully finish this in 11 days!

    I was hoping to get an editor to also look at this month's winning script, but no luck so far in getting anybody... Also was looking to see if I can get something lined up as incentive for people to read & vote who's not frequently on the writing forums, but no luck there either...

    Hey Chris, I'm not sure I'll be able to make this one. I have my hands full on a project and I'm headed out of town this weekend on vacation.

    I'm liking this one because I don't have any grandiose ideas for it.
