search term challenge, round 3

You may remember round 1 and round 2 of the search term writing challenge, where a few brave souls dared let some pretty twisted search terms guide their inspiration.

Well, the Search Term Challenge is back, and this time, instead of being hosted on my humble blog, it’s going to be hosted on an exciting new e-zine!

Yes, yes, I’m talking about Ergofiction again.

The last week of February, we’re going to run an issue dedicated to short stories, and what better way to run said issue than to have a short story competition?

Deadline is February 20th, word count is the usual 1,000-2,500 and as always the prompt for this challenge is directly derived from a most curious set of search terms used to arrive at Merrilee Faber‘s blog.

Just to finish off with a teaser, one of the search terms is “bellowing bastard brothers” — think you can use that in a story?

So, if you’re brave enough, click here to learn how to take part in this devilish writing challenge.

    Have been wondering, when the terms of the challenge say “Must begin with one and end with another”, does that mean one of the terms must literally be the first word and last word? Or just somewhere inside the first and last sentence?
