55 Word Challenge
#55WordChallenge this week is being judged by my daughter, Sarah Sprague. The artwork is hers… she’s talented, I know. She is a Senior in High School and studying Multi Media. She is thinking about a career in animation and I am sure she can do it. She can do anything. Ok, mama proud moment done. Moving on…
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 this week) photo prompts and can be written in any genre you choose. Stipulations: NO PORN. Also, per Sarah’s request… she doesn’t want anything that kills off babies or children. She says if you want to slaughter teens and adults that is fine. Isn’t she funny?
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 or so, (sometimes I run a bit behind) and sent to your email. Also, I will be offering a monthly prize to the story I liked the best between the winners. Octobers winner was @BlanchardAuthor.
Magnets will get mailed out this week. I am making a trip to the post office Thursday. If you are on the list to get a magnet and have not sent a maling address, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you send it after I have mailed the magnets out you will still get a magnet, you will just have to wait until the next time I go to the post office.
