55 Word Challenge: Week Forty-Five

55 Word Challenge
Week Forty-Five



Welcome back to #55WordChallenge!

For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and I have been blown away by some of the entries. See for yourself, all the past contests can be found here. (List has been updated)The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts and can be written in any genre you choose. My only request is no porn. I don't want to hear graphic details. If it is erotic, make it titillating, not obscene. I know that can be done and done well.

The story is to be posted in the comment section below, along with your twitter handle or email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner. If you don't want to list your email address, send it to me at
jezri@writing.com. I promise I won't distribute it, but if you are the winner I need a way to notify you and to send you your prize.




And what does the winner get? This purty badge for one. For two, a $5.00 Amazon Gift Card.  

If anyone is interested in contributing a prize, a book, cover art, whatever you want, let me know and we will work something out. If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!

A Few Things:
 
You may not know, I am the Youth Publication Director at Visionary Press Cooperative. We have a blog, SitNRead, which is directed towards children. I am going to begin hosting a weekly flash contest called Kids Write. It will be open to anyone under 18. If you know of any young authors, please pass the word. There will be 3 catagories: Ages 8 and under, Ages 9 to 13 and Ages 14 to 17. Details will be posted tomorrow on the blog.
 
We also accept story submissions and artwork for the blog from both adults and children. Details are posted in the left column. There will be some exciting changes coming as well, so keep an eye open for that in the next week or so.
 
Free copies of The Pumpkin Seed are available for anyone wanting to take part in a contest we are running to promote Timothy Hobbs book. There is also a chance to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Details are here
And finally, I wanted to share the book cover of my children's book that will be released shortly! Sue Midlock designed the cover and I am super thrilled about it.
