The Word Count Podcast Episode 24.
Ah…now we are back to the creepy themes that seem to be a staple here at The Word Count. As a Dark Urban Fantasy writer, I say “Good on ya!”
Without further waffling, the theme for the next show is:
"The urn you picked up in a garage sale still contains ashes..."
Submission guidelines below. I expect stories that will keep me awake at night!
Submission Guidelines (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)
PROMPT: “The urn you picked up in a garage sale still contains ashes...”
DEADLINE: I must receive your submission by MIDNIGHT (Eastern Time) Friday 23th March 2012
THE DETAILS: The work must be an original of yours. It could be a poem, short story, song---anything really as long as you write something based on the stated theme (“The urn you picked up in a garage sale still contains ashes...”) Do NOT exceed ten minutes.

I do reserve the right NOT to post your submission, but will communicate that to you should it be the case. I add the ‘Explicit’ tag to the ‘cast, so if your story uses adult themes or language that’s ok—but it should be necessary for the story.
Get writing and recording!
