Wow, that was some Purple Prose. LOL

There used to be an annual Purple Prose award for published novels.

If you aren’t a fan of Word - there’s also Scrivener which was created to handle very large manuscripts.

It will also create epubs, which can be loaded directly to your average e-book vendor, no matter who it is.

I bought mine during November, when they were running a special. I adore it, even though I don’t know all it’s quirks and capabilities.

LOL - very neon.

There still is. The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest.

Not quite purple prose, but the worst opening of a story or something like that.


#87

There is also the annual Bad Sex Scene in Fiction awards. A prestigious award dating back to 1993!

I WAS JUST GONNA SAY

I’ve read a few of those. Had tears running down my face.
