During the month of October, I’ll be featuring a handful of guest writers on this blog. Don’t cry. This will be awesome. These will be collaborative guest posts. Sorta. Mostly. I handpicked a bunch of hilarious writers and then I drew crappy pictures to go with their stories.
I’ll also be writing regular posts so this is just a tasty bonus for you. Yum.
Yay! A contest! For you! My lovely, non-crappy readers!
This is what you can win:
No, not me. Not my laptop either. Not the chair, the dress or the table.
So basically not much. Are your expectations adequately lowered? Good.
If you win this contest, this is what will happen:
Your story illustrated on this blog in crappy pictures.
- Contest is open to anyone over the age of 18. (Parents, non-parents, grandparents, pygmy goats, robots, etc.)
- Open to all countries that allow stories and crappy pictures.
- Story must be parenting/kids/babies/childhood related.
- Must be your own story. (Meaning, don’t copy and paste from another person’s blog or something lame and illegal like that.)
Leave a comment that tells me the essence of your story using FIVE sentences or less. Seriously. FIVE sentences or less.
Example: “That time I slipped cat puke and poured a bowl of cereal down my shirt because my son scared me by hiding in a cupboard.” See? That was only ONE sentence. I’m being generous with five. It could be something that happened. It could be a funny conversation with your child. It could even be something from your own childhood. I’m open.
You may enter twice. Meaning, two separate stories.
Please note: your comment entry is not the final story that will be published on the blog. If you are selected as a winner, I’ll contact you for more details of the story and for the description of the people too. Your story also may be edited by me for clarity or for grammar and spelling and such.
There will be THREE winners, selected by me, based on how much I want to draw the story. Or if it made me laugh. Or if my crystal ball told me to pick it.
Contest closes Monday, October 1st, 2012. COMMENTS & CONTEST CLOSED!
Thanks everyone…I’ll be reading through these over the next few days!
