The CBC's 2007 Quebec Writing Competition has officially opened! Fiction or non-fiction, it's all good. Sharpen your pencils (and polish your keyboard) and get cracking! Only 1200 words by August 31... hmmm, why that's... not even 14 words per day... less than 1 word per hour... less than 1 keystroke every 10 minutes...

Remember they want 4 printed copies of your story along with your entry form and your 10 bucks. Hmmm... why that's... not even one dollar per week... less than 11 cents per day... less than... (you get the idea already, I'll stop now)

Quit reading this and go make yourself famous already!
