Alright, so the thought of a writing challenge seemed to go over pretty well. I have been giving this some thought and I think I am ready to start it off. I have come up with some rules to make it fun and interesting that I think will make it fair for all.
Bare with me though, because when I say “I have given it some thought” that means that I have run a million ideas through my head and these are the ones that stood out. But they may not make sense once I put them in writing. lol So please let me know if I am writing gibberish and I will try to clarify.
For each challenge, I will pick either a topic or a genre and a word limit, then it will be up to you to write it and post it on your blog or wherever it is you want it and then come back here and in the “comment” section write the title and the link that will take them to the writing piece.
Everyone will be able to go through and check out all of the stories. But the challenge will be (and I haven’t completely come up with an easy way to do this yet) to see how many votes that you get. I don’t mean how many “likes” you get on your own site, but how many of your fans are willing to take the next step and come back here and give ME their vote for you. Does that make sense? I have a small reward that I will be offering up each month for the winner. And when I say small, I mean small. It is coming out of my own pocket here, so don’t get greedy.
We all love to read and write and that is why we are all here. So won’t it be nice to just have fun for a change? It will still give you great exposure, possibly earn you ten or twenty bucks or so, all while you are just playing.
How does this sound? Should we do it? Yes, YES!! Let’s Do It!!!!
This contest will run from February 1st through February 28th, 2013.
Prize winners will be chosen by how many votes they get on here, not on your own site.
First challenge: Topic – Valentine’s Day
Genre: ANY (but please, if it contains adult content that may be offensive, mark it as such when you leave a comment to tell me where to find it. Thank you.)
Word Count:One thousand words or less.
