Win Batman From Arkham City

Thanks to the excellent Good Game TV series on Australia’s ABC you can win this intimidating life-size Batman statue from the best selling Arkham City game. You have to create an original 1 to 4 page comic starring Batman and one of the Good Game crew, perhaps as a baddie, a civilian needing rescuing or even a potential Robin! Go nuts and good luck.

All relevant rules here and the competition closes November 14.

National Novel Writing Month

Behind the cool acronym (NaNoWriMo) is a cool idea. National Novel Writing Month is a challenging, but inspiring initiative for wannabe writers like me – a 50,000 word novel in November. Phew. Find out more on their website where you can sign up for free and get inspired by lots of cool posts, such as this one focusing on why people write.

Chris B., Executive Director: I write because I love making people laugh, and the written word is an unbeatable joke-delivery device. I write because conjuring sentences and stories still seems like magic to me, and I don’t get many other opportunities to feel like a magician. Mostly I write because I want to find out what happens next.

Max, Intern: I write because once something is written down, I can move on. Writing and printing a story is giving a memory a place in the world.
