Let’s try something fun today!
Please do let me know what you think.
(This is all me coming up with zany ideas so let me know if you do or don’t care for the game that is afoot)
Who wants to win a gift card for Amazon?
Starbucks gift card?
Or a pre-paid early bird access pass to the next summit?
Or a beautiful pen and pencil set?
Personalized coffee mug, T-shirt?
(Quote, name or book title of your choosing)
Anyone curious yet?
Well, I woke up today inspired!
I would love to hear from folks the kind of prizes they would like to win, because the writing excercise contest is about to begin!
In essence I will be suggesting a topic for a short story with a 300 to 500 word limit. With a week long window to submit.
Anyone participating is entered raffle style to win prizes!
That’s right, WINNING the prizes are raffle style, (not based upon the body of writing) enter as many stories as you like on the subject for increased odds of winning.
The main goal is to put those writing exercises to work with or without typos, grammatical errors or incomplete plotlines, your rough drafts count! For raffle purposes, it all counts!
Who’s in? Who wants to play? Who wants to write? Who wants to win?
Let me know here if this game has legs and I will launch it with more specifics.
Some ideas for the writing excercise will involve descriptions of,
a daily ritual (for yourself or your character/villain/crazy postal delivery person/whomever…You get the idea
an addiction to something other than drugs or alcohol (Pov from anyone/character of your choosing) “why this addiction?” must be revealed
Character preparing for a trip, (say where they’re headed without saying where they’re headed)
An unexpected call from a sordid relationship (not necessarily your character’s relationship)
BTW, those making the extra effort of well written stories, they’re eligible for the next level of fun. Yet to be announced.
(I am formulating fresh ideas of ways to gift writers that participate on this level. To potentially publish well written/received stories and highlight your work in unique venues, zero pressure, its just for fun that can deliver some nice bonuses)
What do you think???
