February Eight Hour Challenge Results

February was the first full month of restarting the Eight Hour Fiction Challenge, a call to arms for all able authors that originated on Joe Konrath's blog. A couple of us informally took the challenge in January, and posted the results here.

I hope you'll enjoy what authors came up this month. Hopefully we'll have a better turnout in March


Title: The Most Wonderful Day
Author: Scott Gordon
Genre: Humor
Length: 1,250 words
Completion Time: 4 hours

Description:

Martin Freeman finally took the plunge. He quit his day job to become a full time author and isn't looking back. Brimming with confidence, he's concerned how his wife Greta will take the news. Although being your own boss is liberating, it's also quite scary. If things don't work out, there's no one else to blame but him, a point Greta will most certainly remind him.

But he'll make it work. He's sure of it.

It's just a matter of convincing his wife…

EXCERPT FROM THE MOST WONDERFUL DAY

“Today is the most wonderful day in the world.” Martin Freeman stepped inside his humble home and kissed his wife Greta.

“And why is that, dear?” She scanned over the Food Section of the Washington Post and turned the page.

“Because I’m free to write whatever I want.” He slung his jacket over a chair and pulled it next to her.

“I thought you were already free to write whatever you want.” Greta did not look up. “That’s why you decided not to waste your time submitting your manuscript to traditional publishers and work independently.”

“That’s true, but it’s so much more than that,” he beamed.

Suspicious, she put down the newspaper and looked him in the eye. “I know that look.” She bit her lip. “What did you do?”

Title: Something Under the Sea is Drooling: A Halvin and Cobbs Adventure
Author: Ken Naga
Genre: Science Fiction/Comedy
Length: 6,011 words
Completion time: 7 hours, 56 minutes

Description:

Halvin an' Cobbs vs. Cthulhu!

Halvin "Hal" Ferguson spent his childhood day-dreaming, but even in his wildest imaginings, he never thought he would find himself thrust onto the ragged edge of reality.

Hal's fantastic and unrestrained imagination placed him at the head of a motley but mighty band of beings known as the Mindknaves who tirelessly battle against the forces from Beyond.

But now, the Mindknaves are all but gone. They cannot help him. Cthulhu made sure of that.

Cthulhu - a rancorous and insanely-powerful psyche-shredding force from Beyond has captured Hal's Mom and Dad. Hal knows Cthulhu's plan. The monstrous being of ancient evil plans to force Hal to give up the source of his power - his imagos - and Hal knows that Cthulhu will do anything to get it.

So why is Hal, accompanied by his ever-faithful friend and guardian, the talisman-toy lion Cobbs, diving straight into the reality-warping citadel-city of R'lyeth--straight for Cthulhu's home?

Because Hal knows something that Cthulhu doesn't...or at least he hopes he does.

About The Author

I love to write. I try to write everyday, but I sometimes fail. Regardless, every time I write I try to write better than I did the last time. I think that makes me a writer. I hope my writing pleases those who read it.

I am terribly afraid of snakes.
