Really quick, I’d like to thank TheNextBigWriter.com for posting an announcement on their front page for The Memory Eater. Out of all the online writing workshops, TNBW has always been my favorite. If you want to build in-depth writer-to-writer relationships and get an honest assessment of your work, then this is the place for you. As an added bonus, they just announced their 2011 Strongest Start Novel Competition (over $2,200 in prizes).
Now onto the contest. I want to give everyone the weekend to formulate their ideas, so the contest starts now and ends this Sunday (4/3/11) at midnight.
Become The Next Big SyFy Channel Writer!
In 75 words or less, pitch me the SyFy channel’s next hit movie. What does it take to be SyFy, you wonder? Well have a look (at your own risk, of course):
The first rule of SyFy is to always base your movie around an altered animal as shown in Mega Piranha.
Or an altered “thing” as shown in Behemoth.
The second rule of SyFy is to hire the best talent available within a three meter radius of yourself as done in Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.
The third rule of SyFy is that skin is optional as shown in Triassic Attack.
But really, there are no rules. Just come up with the funniest/most ridiculous pitch, enter it in the comments below, and the winner (announced on Monday, April 4th) will receive his/her choice of a $15 gift card to iTunes, Starbucks or Subway.
Here’s a motivating clip from Shark Attack 3: Megalodon to get the juices flowing:
