Suzanne's First Ever Extraordinary CONTEST!
Come one, come all and bring your best game. Here is the information.
This is a writing contest, but I encourage all my non writer friends to join. I firmly believe we are all writers at the core. So all you students, family, and friends this is an open contest. I am stealing the idea from Mandy and Micheal. It comes from an exercise they did together. Read post here.
So.... I will give you a first line and a last line and you have to come up with a great short story! I don't want to put a word limit, but keep it as tight as you can.
- Thou shalt not use foul language or super steamy stuff. (I know, I know, I KNOW!)
- Thou shall take your TIME and proof read and make it the best it can be
- Thou shall post a link to the contest in your own blog (if you have one) OR on your facebook, myspace, twitter, whatever you do, do.
Just put your story in the comments section. Easy Squeazy. Make sure to put your info (blog, tweet, whatever on the post so we all can find you and follow you and....!) I strongly encourage you to write it in word or whatever you use first. That way you won't lose it. Don't change the lines.
I am putting together a treasure box. Remember the one at the opening in to Kill a Mockingbird? Jem's box? Well this box will have the following items in it:
A 15 dollar gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.
My favorite book (surprise.)
And a bunch of secret treasures. (good ones, not old socks. The winner will be happy.)
The winning post will be original and entertaining (make us laugh, cry, think, take it where you want it to go, but take it somewhere....)
I am recruiting a second judge, my partner in all things write, Mandy. Even though I bummed her out and wouldn't let her play :(
Deadline is Sunday 7/26/2009 11:59 .... or thereabouts! *Thanks LT*
The winner will be announced on Monday 7/27/2009
First line: It all started with a fortune cookie.
Last line: The roses bloomed in Orkney.
One, Two, Threeeeeeee GO!
