Create Your Own Adventure - Contest!


That's right - YOU will be leading this adventure! In thanks for all of my awesome blog readers, I'm letting you run the course of this contest!


The rules are simple: I'll be posting a sentence on Thursday, March 24. To enter the contest, post a comment continuing the story. It can go in any direction you wish - no preparation necessary. You MUST, however, continue on from the previous poster.

For example:

My post: I love dogs.

Entrant: This is what I thought as I walked down the path.

Your post: And then a magical LEOPLURIDON jumped out!

Next Entrant: He showed me the way to Magic Mountain.

Obviously, I'm going for fun here, so have FUN with your post. I will randomly select THREE winners from those who post before Friday, March 25th at Midnight PST.


The winners will be announced on Monday, March 28th.

Each winner will have a choice of:

Treasure 1: Hidden Gems - query and first twenty page critique

Treasure 2: Sustenence for Future Quests - $5 Starbucks card and a brainstorm via chat session on whatever you like for 30min

Treasure 3: Gold - $15 Amazon gift card


THANK YOU everyone for making my blog ramblings not quite so silly by reading along - and enjoy!

  20. Sounds super fun! But how long should each post be? One sentence? I'm thinking someone posting 1000 words in the comment section may be a little much :P

  22. Way fun! I will try to partake. Um, only prob might be while any of us are concocting our gems of sentences, and then someone else hits submit before we do--thus twisting the order of the story so it gets a little wonky! ;o)
