Curious? Compelled? Just plain crazy? Sign up today for the world’s most notorious literary marathon.

This is the last week to get your registrations in for the 2011 International 3-Day Novel Contest! The writing event that began as a dare and became a legend is about to take place for the 34th year in a row.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to test your literary chops and see what kind of far-out, fast-paced, fantastical fiction you can produce under pressure. You might earn yourself some whip-smart ideas, some shiny pearls of dialogue, some prime turns of phrases, or, at the very least, a big ol’ creative kick in the pants… and the one novel our judges like best will win publication.

The contest begins at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 3, and ends 11:59 p.m., Monday, Sept. 5. Registrations can be submitted online or by mail until end of day this Friday, September 2. And don’t forget: this year you can save yourself some postage by submitting your novel online! (Old-fashioned snail mail is also still accepted.)
