Welcome to the 4th edition of the #WeekendWritercize competition!
Join in and spread the word to friends and family!
Badges and coffee up for grabs this week.
(...and if you haven't had a chance to read entries from the last three weeks, check them out on the #WeekendWritercize tab - talent abounds)
writercize: Write the opening to a novel with the following title:
Five O'Clock Shadows.
Any genre ok. "Opening" may be interpreted as opening sentence, paragraph or scene. Make me want to read more!
To enter the competition, leave your entry as a comment below. Be sure to include your Twitter handle and link to your blog or website. Tweet and Facebook your own as well as fellow entries using the hashtag #WeekendWritercize.
Since this blog is used by teachers and students, I kindly request that you abstain from profanity and gratuitous violence. (In other words, keep it PG-13.) If your story can't be told without, just provide a link to your post on your own website along with a disclaimer. Your entry will still be considered.
Competition closes at 11:59 p.m. Sunday night (Pacific time) - no entries accepted after that. Winner announced Monday.
This week's winner and honorable mention(s) will receive a #WeekendWritercize Winner badge to proudly display on their website, and to sweeten the deal, a $5 Starbucks card is at stake!
Thanks and good luck!
