The best gifts are the ones you make yourself. That's why J. A. Bennett, Leigh Covington, and myself wish to invite you to give the gift of your writing. And we've got prizes! I know. I totally linked myself. Who does that?
Here's the deal:
Write a piece of flash fiction, poem, or song (300 words or less) for someone you know (real or imaginary). It may be in any genre, but it must have a holiday theme (real or fictional). Post it on your blog anytime between now and when the linky closes. You will then give it to that someone, sometime before the new year.
Give it in the form of an email, on fancy stationary, or laser-etched onto a solid gold plate. Your choice.
Telling us who you're giving it to is optional.
Every eligible entry will qualify for a chance to win one of a few special gifts. The linky will close at 11:59 PM, Friday the 16th (MST). J.A., Leigh, and I will then read, debate, and decide on five winners for the following:
1st: An Amazon Gift Card for $15
2nd: "Champaginer Challenges 2011" and "Totally Clichéd" E-books
3rd: A 5-page critique from David Powers King
4th: A 5-page critique from J. A. Bennett
5th: A 5-page critique from Leigh Covington
Judging will be based on the effectiveness and quality of your writing. There is no point system, no popularity votes, and you do not have to follow us to participate.
We're givers. What can we say?
Sound good? Awesome! Copy and paste the linky code below with your entry. Spread the word! Paste the button on your blog! Tweet the sweetness! We look forward to reading your holiday magic!
I'm David, and where's the wrapping paper?
