A Writing Distraction

BoredAre things slow at work as you head into the holidays?  Consider a little writing distraction to pass the time.  Here are a few free contests which require nothing more than a pen, paper, and your skills.  Odds are in your favor, DFWWW members.

In a fantastical mood?    Marvel Comics and Harley Davidson have teamed up to offer prizes for the best 500 word essay about you, a superhero, and your hogs.  Prizes include cash and, of course, a motorcycle.  Ride off into the sunset by clicking here.

Want to sharpen your non-fiction chops?  Clorox wants a flash (non)fiction story under 120 characters about your most bleachable moment.  Prize includes a cool 15K.  Go clean up the competition by clicking here.

Feeling romantic?  Villa Sandi Winery wants your 800 word engagement story, and will reward the best with a trip for two to Italy.  Vivere e amare!  Share the love by clicking here.

Good luck.  Hopefully these will carry you into 2013 and get you ready for your inevitable New Year’s writing resolutions.
