Such is my case, and the case of many others. Granted, some of you are not of marriageable age, but that is muchly beside the point. So here's the deal. This contest will be a contest of Fiction. You may write a dialog, a poem, or a short story (no more than 4,000 words, please). The theme is Un-Valentined Humor. :) Witty, funny, humorous entries about this plight. After all, it isn't exactly a bad thing to be unmarried, and it doesn't mean that you never will be married. We must laugh at ourselves and other people in the same predicament, and celebrate this humorous time of life! :)
You may write about two girls discussing their single state, a romantic comedy where no one ends up married, a parody on a famous romantic poem, etc. The idea is to showcase the themes of Valentine's day from an "un-coupled" person's prospective! :) Have fun with it! (And no, you don't have to be single to enter.)

As always, keep the entries clean and appropriate--I will disqualify anything I deem to the contrary of those scruples. However, I expect nothing but brilliancy from the lot of you. This "Heigh-Ho for a Husband" Blog Party and Contest will open Wednesday, January 23, 2012, and end on February 14th, 2011.
The rules are as follows:
- Each entrant may submit one entry for each category: Poetry, Dialog, or Story. Email all submissions to email@example.com
- The entries will be judged in their category. I'll choose one winner from each category, and their entries will be featured on this blog.
- Then the winners from those three entries will compete for the Grand Prize Winner. I will be announcing the prize at a later date. :)
P.S. You may begin writing your entries now--just don't send them before Jan. 23, please!
