And the Omniscient Mussel has just reminded me that #operaplot is happening again. Not that I’d forgotten exactly, but I hadn’t been paying proper attention to the dates.
And it’s this week. Yikes!
Entries open Monday 26 April at 9am EST. And I don’t think that’s Australian EST, so Sydneysiders are best to wait until after 11 o’clock tonight just to be on the safe side.
Entries close on Friday 30 April at midnight (or 2pm on Saturday). Thank God it’s only a week or I would get nothing done.
Non-winning entries from the past are eligible, so those of us with treasured rejects can dust them off and send them out on another attempt. But half the fun is inventing the things, of course. The other half is following everybody else.
The entry limit is ten (your first ten contributions, anything after that is sheer indulgence). Unfortunately @FAKEfrindley was outed last time, although no one’s exactly saying you can’t enter from more than one account…
So off you go, get ye a Twitter account if you don’t have one already, and operaplot!
For geeky Mac-using types I recommend the Smultron text editor as a drafting tool (Smultron is Swedish for strawberry, by the way). It’s very simple, which is good for creativity, and it counts characters as you go.
