Hello blogging friends. I have a couple of announcements to make. The first is that the new “First Chapter” Contest/give-away on my blog is now open for submissions! So dust off those old first chapters and send them in. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone has out there. Another thing is that it would be absolutely amazing if other writerly-type people found out about this contest, so if any of you would like to blog about it, go right on ahead.
And then, following the theme of “Contests”, there is a “Green Give-away” over at Squeak’s blog. What you need to enter is to send an excerpt from your story to squeaks via email, OR you can write a few paragraphs about one of the elements and send that it. The excerpt or your paragraphs have to be 600 words long or under, and it also has to have the word "green" worked into it somewhere, but it can't sound forced. Go check it out! :)
And last but not least, I'm thinking about starting a blog series on the Elements of the Story. I'll probably be posting the first part of it later today, so stay tuned.
And that's all for now. Have a nice day! :D
