Possible Contest

The sad thing about Christmas is that it's over so soon. There are just four more days left of 2011, and then 2012 will be upon us - shock and horror! But with the approach of the new year, Jenny and I are considering hosting a writing contest here on Scribbles as a farewell to the old, all hail the new. The entries would be short stories of some kind and the prizes would probably be copies of our books (The Shadow Things and The Soldier's Cross) as well as a critique of the first chapter of your novel. The details are still being hashed out, but we wanted to know what you readers think of the idea. Would you like to participate in a writing contest?

let us know!

  1. Oh my sainted aunt Fanny I am *so* entering this! Oh please please please host a contest! :) It may be the only way I'll ever have a chance at getting a copy of your book! ;) I'm in!

  2. YES! PLEASE host a contest, I'd LOVE to enter!

  3. Plus, a chance to win Jenny's book is very...apealing. ;-)

  4. That's a nice idea :D
    Would it have to be prose, or could it be the beginning of, maybe, a longish/ possible epic poem?

  5. I think that would be fine, Bethany. The entries will be short - probably not even a page in lenghth - and Jenny and I may choose an opening or a closing line for the participants to work off of.

  6. I would participate, Abigail. :D Sounds delightful.

  7. That sounds completely wonderful!

  8. As long as I can find time to pull something together, I would participate! I love this idea!

  9. YES YES!
    I just purchased "The Shadow Things" from Amazon; yours is next!

  10. Sounds like an amazing idea! If I can scrounge together some time and inspiration doesn't elude me, I'm in. :)

  11. Oh my, this sounds amazing!

    I would love to participate, especially if there were an opening or closing line to spark my inspiration. :D

    A copy of your book would be an awesome prize, indeed. :D
