Tenth Daughters of Memory, 2009

As some are aware, in September of 2009 I co-founded (along with my buddy over at Caffeinated Joe) a writing/blogging group called The Tenth Daughter of Memory. There's nothing much to it, of course; it's just a bunch of writers motivating each other to write by way of "friendly competition." Obviously, there's no cash prize, but the "winner" of a particular topic or theme (there's a voting process) gets to pick the follow-up topic or theme. And because of this, in my humble opinion, there is some seriously high-quality stuff being submitted.

Anyway, if there are any budding (or already budded) writers out there who are interested, feel free to check it out. Below are the topics/themes and my entry for each. There is, I can safely say, quite a variety of work from the participants. And if you're curious of how the name of the group was chosen, read this: Irreverent Irrelevance: The Tenth Daughter of Memory.

  5. Ahh, I had no idea about this. I've seen Brian's posts listed as 10DOM and was trying to figure out what that was. I should like to try some time.

    I'll check it out but it might take me a few weeks to get it into my schedule. I have a couple of story deadlines to meet for writing competitions that I have to get in the can first. But, be sure I will be following these works.
