55 Word Challenge
Today is a special day for 55 Word Challenge. For one, it is my birthday! Yep, that's right, yours truly is getting older. Scary, I tell ya, just plain scary.
But that's not what makes it special... although it's a close second. No. Today we have an amazing artist with us; Thomas Arensberg. I hope you find his art as inspiring as I do.
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.
The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of
three Four 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 email@example.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 gift card for $5.00 from Amazon. (The prize will be rewarded within about week and sent to your email.) Also new, I will be offering a monthly prize to the story I liked the best between the winners. That will be announced at the end of the month who gets this. Also, since it is my birthday, YAY, I will be having some giveaways. Yay! Free stuff. So go check out the photos and get to writing already.
If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!
There are four this week because I couldn't decide which one to drop.
First, I'm a father then a painter , sculptor . martial artist. My dad was my introduction to creativity and a great artist. As a kid i used to go under the kitchen table and into his lap as he was talking with my mom he would draw what ever I asked for. I must have been three or four, I asked for a sub as he was talking with my mom ,very fast darwing useing cross haching in the negitve space. At first I thought he was fronting me off, I remember tears in my eyes then I saw the sub for me, it was majic! to this day i love to watch hands painting , sculpting anything really. hands are magic.
