Extra points if we use the phrase "Enter the Dragoon"?

No? Huh.

BuffySquirrel said...

Not even a little whine? A whin? A whi?

Can't wait for the Halloween goodies the snarklings will dream up with this one. I am pre-emptively covering my keyboard with Saran wrap right now.

Oh man! I'm gonna be out trick or treating!

I think I'll go as a dragoon this year. :-)

Mrs. Brain Bomb said...

Oh, I have got to see this.

Dave said...

I love these things. They help me focus my thoughts on a story where I have writer's cramp, uh sorry, writer's block... ... ... that's it, writer's block.

M. G. Tarquini said...

Oh, I have got to see this.

Me, too.

There's a site--Bix.com that will allow you to post a contest and see videos of all contestants and vote online. (Kind of YouTube meets American Idol.) Great for contestants with music, single, great costumes...

Would love to actually see some Snarklings in action!

Nick said...

I'll be in class during the open window. Oh well, at least this will be interesting to read.

Miss Snark said...

Nick, this is why Dog invented wi-fi and laptops.

M. G. Tarquini said...

Um...question. The entries are anonymous, correct? Like the cabal? So if one were to actually sing, one's name wouldn't be attached to said performance...correct?

Anonymous said...

uh-oh - I have two possibilities - can i submit twice?

shelby said...

So for the singing part, should we attach an audio file?

Sha'el, Princess of Pixies said...

I sing like a goat. i'll omit the music.

Ray Goldensundrop said...

Can't give a crisp dragoon due to the cabal known as enterprise systems that pays way more strauss than phantom retainers.

I've written my entry and it's all ready to go - but how do I send it during the window which is 3-4 am Pakistan Standard Time?! Can I get a special dispensation or do you want me to suffer for my... uh... art?

Kelley Bell said...

A writing contest? Oh how exciting!

I read your post carefully, but have a few questions:

May I send the essay on 11/1 instead of 10/31, you see my in laws are coming over for trick or treat, and I have to finish sewing joey's mermaid costume. I dont want you to think I'm not TOTALLY focused on this writing project, I am, but my mother in law can be so demanding...

Also, do I need to use the word Dragoon, or can I submit a piece I did in high school about petunias?

I have a drawing my daughter made, can I include it?

oh, and is there a prize or anything for the effort?

If I dont hear back, I'll call your office.

Thanks!

Is it OK if I use Crispin instead of crisp? I wand to mention Ann, Victoria, and Dave in my entry.
