In for another in-thread writing contest? The second edition is now hosted by Hannah, the winner of the last Blogger Coffee Shop Writing Competition. This edition is another 150 words – of which 5 words randomly picked and obligatory – challenge.
These are the rules, as quoted from the fabulous Hannah:
5 words will be chosen randomly through here; http://watchout4snakes.com/
You have to construct a story that incorporates all of the 5 words, and is exactly 150 words in length all together.
You will post your story as a reply to this thread. For the sake of clarity, you will italicise the entire 150 words, so that the stories are easy to spot as one scrolls through the thread, and you will bold the 5 random words in the story.
An entry that is not 150 words exactly, that has not been italicised, and that has not bolded the target words, will be ignored, because I just cannot be bothered to sift through everything and find stories and/or words in stories.
The winner is determined by how many 'Yes, this answer is helpful' votes she or he gets. Any 'No' answers will not be taken into account, because seriously, stop being petty.
The competition ends a week from now (IE; Next Tuesday), at whatever time I can manage to get online.
The winner of this competition will host next week's competition, and be declared winner on Stories Inc.'s page, with their winning entry posted, as well as a link to their blog.
(Example entries can be found here, if you're still unclear about the rules; http://www.google.com/support/
Your five randomly chosen words are; Preliminary, Yellow, Contrary, Dying, Draw
You can enter the competition by posting your entry here.
Good luck to all of you and I’ll be looking forward to reading all of your entries at the Forum ;)
