The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic

Here at the Carrot Ranch, we take the business of 99-word literary art seriously. Those who participate in the Ranch prompts or yearly Rodeo saddle up to TUFF (The Ultimate Flash Fiction) it out and train new Rough Riders as we go. Now, the Ranch is hosting a new event to sharpen minds, welcome new hands, and celebrate one of our own the best way we know how: our first ever Rodeo Classic.

In this Rodeo Classic, we’re here to celebrate a stalwart center of many blogging corners, Sue Vincent. Sue has variously contributed to the community here at the Carrot Ranch, through communication with many other bloggers, and run her own famous #writephoto weekly blog prompt. You can (and should!) follow her on her blogs, The Daily Echo and the shared blog France & Vincent. She has inspired us to become better writers and shown us the power of mystery and myth. We also suggest taking a perusal at her book corral and Amazon pages!

The Rodeo and Prizes

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic serves as a special challenge. Riders will have to condense the following photo into a story of 99 words (or, if you prefer, a poem of 99 syllables). Writing 99 words has never seemed TUFFer!

Each story needs to have a beginning, middle and end. Poems must have distinctive theme, movement, and rhythm; no rhyme scheme is necessary, but neither will rhyme be punished. Go where the prompt leads you – any genre is acceptable, but keep it family friendly and related to the photo. If you haven’t wrangled here at the Carrot Ranch before, you can find some prize-winning 99-word flash from the 2020 Rodeo or the 2019 Rodeo at these links. Don’t cheat with 98 or 100 words or syllables! We’ll only accept 99 word stories or 99 syllable poems written in English! (We’ll be using https://wordcounter.net/ to count words and https://syllablecounter.net/ to count syllables so everyone has the same standard). Only write 99 word stories. Do not write 99 word poems – we want 99 syllable poems.

For this rodeo, we’re offering a $100 grand prize. Five runners up will each receive one paperback from Sue Vincent’s collection of published books (those who live in a region where the paperback is unavailable may receive an e-book instead). No fee necessary to enter but this is a fundraiser so we kindly ask for a suggested donation of $5 per entry (no more than two entries allowed per writer). The contest will close at midnight on Friday, February 19th, 2021. Winning entries will be announced and read at CarrotRanch.com/blog on March 22, 2021. Top entries published at Carrot Ranch. We will not accept entries previously published (even if published on your own blog), so keep them tucked away for now.

Judges: Geoff Le Pard, Anne Goodwin, and Charli Mills. First-Pass readers: H.R.R. Gorman, Sue Spitulnik, D. Avery, and Sherri Matthews. List of judges and readers will update as needs may change depending on the volume of entries and continued judge availability. Entries will be anonymized prior to judging.

$5 suggested donation to enter. You may enter no more than twice. You are welcome to donate more than the suggested entry fee. All proceeds go directly to Sue Vincent and Family. Use this link to donate:


At the announcement that Sue had succumbed to her disease, we removed the donation link. Because the money went directly to Sue, we thought this the best course in order to preserve her family’s privacy. She got to live to see the winners of the contest, and for that we’re eternally grateful. If you’d still like to help out, we’re sure she’d appreciate you reading one of her books or perusing her blog!


THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED AND WE’VE REMOVED THE ENTRY FORM

The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic Parade

All Rodeos need a parade, just as the Carrot Ranch yearly rodeo has done. The Rodeo Classic parade will be a parade like no other – and we don’t need to wait until the end of the contest or announcement of winners to do so. It’s time to celebrate with gusto and march down the main street of Carrot Ranch central.

Sue Vincent

As mentioned above, Sue Vincent is a poet who has acted as glue for the community for over a decade now. She has honed her poetry and prose to a beautiful finish, and her adventures through ruins and the English countryside have inspired many of us throughout our blogging journeys. Recently, Sue has run into a spot of trouble with a bit of small cell lung cancer. With Covid complicating all medical procedures and the ability to speak with others (especially for those with respiratory illnesses), some of the best comfort can come from online interactions. You can read more about Sue’s situation on the series of posts beginning here.

The Parade, however, will march on through many different avenues. Sue’s literary art will be on full display throughout the month of February. Here’s some ways you can help participate in the parade and make the Rodeo Classic even better!

  • Advertise the Rodeo. Advertise this rodeo on your own blog, tweet it, forward on Instagram, post on Facebook, wherever you can! The graphic at the top of this page can be used freely as part of the campaign. The more participants, the merrier. We’d like to advertise the contest to people who may not already be familiar with our or Sue’s literary community, so put up the posters far and wide!
  • Reblog a post from Sue’s blogs. Go to The Daily Echo and/or France & Vincent and take a gander at some of the things there. Choose a post, or two, or seven, and reblog it with a comment on why you did so. Feel free to advertise the contest when you do.
  • Purchase one of her books. You can find a link to Sue’s books here and choose the Amazon page appropriate for your region.
  • Review that purchased book! Read the book and post a review. There’s many places to put it, but we suggest Amazon, Goodreads, and your blog as a start.
  • Comment or like her posts. Comments brighten anyone’s day, and Sue’s blog is filled with posts ripe for commenting. The Rodeo Organization Team will be reblogging some of her posts, so keep an eye out for those if you want some suggestions!

We look forward to seeing you in the stands, on the back of a bull, or maybe even clowning about.

Sincerely,

The Rodeo Organization Team

  2. Norah

    Wow! This will be the first photo prompt for me. Can I do it?

    • Anne Goodwin

      Of course you can, Norah. But did you not do Geoff’s giant tortoise?

      • Norah

        Oh, I think you’re right, Anne. I’d forgotten about that. 🙂

    • Jules

      Sure you can. Write a description if you need to and then Write on!!

      • Norah

        Thanks for your encouragement, Jules. I’ll give it a go.

      You never know until you try – which you should! You have until the 19th.

      • Norah

        I’ll see how I go. 🙂

    A very special Rodeo Classic over at the Carrot Ranch in honour of blogger, author, poet and friend to so many of us, Sue Vincent.. Sue has cancer and yet continues to shine with her writing and to support her fellow authors. This 99 word or syllable rodeo has an amazing prize of $100 and a book of Sue’s to enjoy. It is also a way to donate $5 to a fund raiser. Even if you are not entering the challenge, you can still help raise awareness by reblogging the original post from Carrot Ranch, buying Sue’s latest book, which incidentally looks like a great read, or reblogging posts from her blogs. Thanks Sally

    Greetings, dear friends. 2021 kicked off in grand (grim) style and here we are. February already. Two hours after I blogged my Christmas post, our plans crashed and burned thanks to imminent lockdown. Two days later, my lovely Mum suffered a stroke. She is recovering so well, thank you again for all your very lovely kind messages. So…January disappeared and I return somewhat back on track with a reblog from Carrot Ranch announcing a very special contest: The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic. Please do click on the link for rules of entry. This contest comes with a donation suggestion of $5. All monies go directly to Sue Vincent and her family. As I said, this is a very special contest for a very special lady. Sue writes and blogs about her recent cancer diagnosis and ongoing treatment through this pandemic. She also writes openly about her concerns as carer for her adult son. Unpaid carers, I can attest, fall through too many cracks. The contest: 99 word flash fiction with Sue’s photo as a prompt. It’s live now, closes midnight, Friday, February 19th. Open to all and any help you might give to spread the word. Thank you! I’ll be back here at the Summerhouse next week. Love Sherri x

    • Anne Goodwin

      Too many cracks, indeed, Sherri. Let’s make this one a bit smaller. Hope your family is rallying too.

      • Sherri Matthews

        Yes, it’s good to know we can help any small way we can. We’re rallying! Thanks, Anne!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Beautifully put!

  5. Jules

    How can we enter without online donation – For those who would like to enter and or just donate but not via electronically. Is there a PO Box we can send donations to that can be ‘re-wired’ into the donation system. Not everyone is tech savvy when it comes to (nor want to donate via online means).

    Thanks in advance to all those who are reading, writing and reposting and getting the word out for Sue Vincent and her family!!!

    May our roads be health, happy and smooth filled with the joy of caring and sharing!!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      I personally don’t know if we have a way to do non-online donations. I don’t have a PO Box, at least. ???

      But definitely submit! We hope that the recent updates have clarified the donation is suggested but not required.

      • Jules

        2 options…1) Maybe I can donate monies to someone I already have the address of (I’d ask them first), or another Judge or participant can email you their PO Box for those in this situation? Worth an ask? 2) get one of those Store Visa cards that isn’t attached to a name.

        I’ve got one piece in the works… And I’m thinking about the other. Thanks.

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        You could always ask somebody with a PayPal to do it. I’m not sure how the Visa cards work, especially since Sue is in Britain.

      • Jules

        Just for your info…
        Does paypal accept prepaid cards?
        “Yes. Anywhere in the U.S. where PayPal is accepted you can use prepaid gift cards that have a Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, or Discover® logo on it. … For users without PayPal account, you can just enter the card information during checkout in the same way you would do with credit or debit cards.”

        Does paypal accept prepaid cards for out of country?
        “PayPal accepts any prepaid card that has a Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover logo. They do not accept store-specific gift cards, even if the purchase is being made with that store. According to PayPal’s prepaid card terms, prepaid cards cannot be used for recurring transactions.”

        Apparently there is a minimal fee (exchange rate?) applied for funds from the US to the UK. So if I interpret that correctly, that would mean one would pay more to cover the exchange rate to keep the dollar figure even with the requested amount required.

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        Well, if you want to do the prepaid Visa card, go for it! Sounds like it could be an option.

        No matter which option we chose to do the donation bit, there was always going to be a fee associated. PayPal can be easily integrated into WordPress and has the advantage of being *able* to convert currency. So, even though there are some associated losses, we thought it was the best option currently.

      • Jules

        Just as an added FYI one can get a prepaid visa card without paying a fee if they are a AAA member. If you get one at a store depending on the amount you want you can pay about $6 – $10 for processing.

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        I was just commenting to someone else that another option is to buy one of her books on Amazon. Sure, Amazon takes a cut, but it does give some to Sue as well!

      • Jules

        Does that count as the ‘entry fee’ – I was thinking of that too. 😀 ????????????

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        There’s no official fee. The suggested donation is $5, but we know some people might not be in the shape to give or might face tech issues. We want all the stories we can get!

      • Jules

        Then this is what I’ll do – I’ve got a poem good to go… And I’m working on a ‘story’ – I’ll send them. With this promise – that I’ll buy at least two books! 😀

  6. olganm

    This is a wonderful initiative, and I love to see Sue get an homage. I’ll spread the word!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Thank you! Hope to see your entry.

    I’m looking forward to this. Beautiful image from a beautiful person. I hope the turnout is huge. <3 Shared!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      I hope we get a good passel of entries!

      • D. Wallace Peach

        I’m working on it already! It will be especially fun when we get to read them all. Thanks to you and Carrot Ranch for organizing this, HRR, and for tolerating all my questions! Lol. Happy Writing!

      Good luck!

  25. Gwen M. Plano

    How delightful! I’d added my 99-word poem and am spreading the word. All the best to Sue! ???? And many thanks to the team!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Did you submit it on the form? I haven’t received it yet. I’m trying to get a second submission method going later today.

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Op! There it is! The system decided to upload a bunch all at once. I’ll be sending a confirmation email shortly. 🙂

    • suespitulnik

      And I’m honored to be able to help out.

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        You don’t even know what’s coming. We already got several folks entering! 😉

  26. Jim Borden

    what a great way to honor such a special person…

  27. usfman

    I’m sending a second version of my story for this contest with a couple minor corrections to meet the 99 word limit. Thanks. USFMAN

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      I saw the sub! Thanks for letting me know – I was worried you meant to submit a second entry and may have sent the same one twice. I’ll make sure to collect the second one for judging.

  28. roughwighting

    Great fun and wonderful for Sue. I wrote my 99 word story and submitted. The donation part is confusing to me. I don’t have Paypal. Is there another way to donate? And under the Paypal, is that in pounds or dollars?

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Right now, we’ve just got Paypal; usually there is a fee to convert dollars to pounds (or other currency). Part of the reason we chose Paypal is because of the Ranch’s large international community and because Sue is in Britain.

      The other thing? Paypal is what WordPress lets you link with the plan. 😉 So that’s the big one.

      • roughwighting

        P.S. I just read in your comment to Balroop that we’ll get an e-mail showing receipt of our submission. I submitted on the 2nd but didn’t get an e-mail. Should I submit again. :-0 THANKS for all you’re doing.

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        I got a bunch yesterday but didn’t have time to collate. I’ll check this afternoon/evening (about 7 hours from now).

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Oh! I just realized – you could buy one of her books off Amazon! Sure, Amazon takes a cut, but it’s actually a pretty effective way to get money across the pond!

      • roughwighting

        Ok- good idea! I already have one of Sue’s books. I’ll order another. ????

  29. floridaborne

    I happily paid the $6.82 US dollars ($5 GBP) to enter this contest, and put a link on her post.

    I hope you get 1000’s of entries. ????

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Oh man, maybe not 1000s. My eyeballs may burn out of my skull from screen time, haha

      • Charli Mills

        Ha, ha! I felt a bit of panic at 1000s! But I do hope people donate generously as they can.

  31. willowdot21

    Hi I am sorry to be a pain but I am uncertain of a couple of points. Does there have to be a byline and
    a title, do the come within the 99 word or syllable count? If they don’t how do I show them as seoarate to the main story/ poem. Thank you again for this opportunity to support Sue and her family. Ps. I have read the rules but I am unsure and don’t want to mess up. ????

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Just state byline and title at the top. It won’t count as part of the 99 word story or 99 syllable poem. Just keep the byline/title in a separateparagraph.

      • willowdot21

        Thank you so much for your prompt answer. I can manage the donation and have been re-posting like mad. ????????????

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        Thank you!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Me too! Thanks for sharing.

  32. denmaniacs4

    So, I have just submitted one 99 word tale but the donation button seemed somewhat resistant to my efforts. I will try again …already tried 3-4 times with negative results.

    • denmaniacs4

      success…glitch dealt with…

      • Charli Mills

        Ha! I think we cross-posted but I’m glad the glitch resolved!

    • Charli Mills

      Bill, the resistance might be a browser issue. Change browsers and see if that works. If not, use the Carrot Ranch donation button and I’ll transfer it immediately to Sue.

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Other people have gotten hard luck with the donate button. It’s optional but highly suggested.

      Something I’ve suggested to other people is to perhaps buy one of her books. It’s not got quite the same ratios as the donation button, but she will get royalties out of it! Almost like a donation.

  33. balroop2013

    I am new to this challenge. Does 99 words include the title?

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Nope! Just make sure the title is on a separate line at the beginning. I’m pretty good at spotting titles, though.

      • balroop2013

        Thank you H.R. for the clarification. My poem is ready. 🙂

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        Nice! Just submit it and I’ll add it.

        Also, I’ll send you an email confirmation when I’ve received it.

  34. usfman

    Sorry I am sending a 3rd version of my entry concerning the 99 word topic.
    Quite a challenge to accomplish it seems.

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Lol, I have it. 🙂

  35. Patricia Furstenberg

    What an enticing image! I am considering giving it a go!
    Thank you ????

    Visiting over from Sally’s blog.

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Do it! I’ll look forward to your sub.

      PS neither one will have a URL link because I am not posting them on my blog at this time.

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        Cool! You’re not supposed to put them on your blog. The website request was mostly so we could advertise your blog when we publish them.

      • Jules

        Ah… I’ll send that to you – I wasn’t sure exactly what that was for since at Carrot Ranch that form links to the post. Thanks…

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      I got your entries! Just wanted to put the notice in multiple places.

  36. noelleg44

    Any idea how to convey to the judges that I would like to think this might be the thoughts of Thomas Moran (1837 –1926), a painter in oil and water color, whose vision of the Western landscape was critical to the creation of Yellowstone National Park?

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      You mean your entry, or the photo?

  37. Jen Goldie

    Hi
    Just wondering if my submission got through. It looked like it did.
    My donation went straight through and was confirmed.????yay!
    Thanks H.R.R. ????

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Just finished looking through them, and I think I saw one from you. If you had a second story, just reply to the email I sent.

        Ok cool.
        Just saw your email. Thanks for the confirmation ????

      • H.R.R. Gorman

        No problem. Apologies for the lateness!

      • Jen Goldie

        I figured you took the weekend off.
        THE NERVE!!!!!! ????????

  38. noelleg44

    Should we post the 99 words?

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Nope – in fact don’t post them until after the winners are announced! We’re judging blind, which means we can’t have our judges stumbling upon entries and matching authors to work. 🙂

  39. Jacquie Biggar

    I love that you came up with this idea to support Sue. Can’t wait to read the stories!

    • H.R.R. Gorman

      Well, I’ll tell you this much (as the only person so far to have read them all): it’s going to be a tough time for the judges!

    I have half risen to the challenge by reblogging this post and then writing a 99-word story I’m fairly proud of. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really relate to the photograph. I will try again if I find the words. I thought I’d share a link to my little story anyway, but not as part of the competition:

    I really hope this challenge gets a lot of responses.

      It’s doing pretty well – 3 hours left to the finish line!!!
