It became abundantly clear in last week’s challenge that we’re dealing with some pretty serious talent. The bar was raised high. The winner will be announced next week, but I’d like to give a shout out to ALL of our participants. Thank you for making the first Sunday Scribble Challenge an instant success!
*A quick note to participants new to the Sunday Scribble Challenge: Even if our scribblers don’t win, flash fiction challenges fuel creativity. In these Sunday Scribble Challenges, participants exercise their writing muscles by working in the confines of a limited word count. If you’ve never posted your work before, this could be a great opportunity to get your proverbial feet wet. If you’re an established author and/or blogger, this is a terrific way to interact with a few of your peers, and possibly pick up some new readers!
That said, if you are an established author or blogger and you WIN, you or your work can be *gasp* featured in an upcoming post on Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins. This can be done in whatever way you like. A reblog, a guest blog, a new interview about a favorite project, or even a small sample of your latest book along with a purchasing link. You decide!
So, with that all that stuff aside, what’s NEW prompt???
Well . . .
The Rules: You have six days to ruminate if you need them. Post one submission to the prompt in the comment section below. The deadline? Saturday, April 9th @noon Atlantic Daylight Time.
- Encourage other Scribblers. Try to comment (reply) to at least three other submissions during the week.
- After the deadline, VOTE for your favorite submission by emailing: Sundayscribblechallenge@gmail.com. Place the lucky author’s name in the HEADER of your email.
Voting polls OPEN immediately after the prompt deadline on April 9th, and CLOSE one week later, on April 16th. That means the winner of THIS challenge won’t be announced until Sunday, April 17, when our FOURTH challenge prompt is posted.
Sneaky?? Maybe. It’s definitely a good way to rope you back in the next challenge!!
Trolls will be escorted back to their bridge with a flaming stick of dynamite.
