After reaching 150 followers a week or so ago (you guys are GREAT!) I decided it was time to have a celebration. I asked you for what you wanted, and there was no clear cut winner, but most of you said either a boring old give-away or a hundred-word contest. SO.
(Also, there are a ton of blogfests going on - maybe at 200!)
I was perusing the internet for prize ideas, and I saw this:
And so... WITHOUT FURTHER ADO!!!
The Hundred Words of Shakespeare Contest!
Here are the Rules (Rules must always be capitalized):
***Leave your entries in the comments sections, I don't have an entry form***
Rule 1: You must be a follower of my blog to participate. +1 point
Rule 2a: Write a 100 word story in whatever genre you choose, but in the style of Shakespeare.
This can be about a noise that woke you up this morning, a secret letter delivered in the dead of night, a spaceship that only flies when people aboard are singing, or a chase across New York to diffuse a bomb. Anything! If you go over or under by a few words, no big deal, but try to keep it within 15 words of 100.
Rule 2b: You can leave an excerpt from the Master Himself! (this could be fun if you go for the more obscure quotes) + 2 points
(Optional) Rule 3:
Tweet about this contest (link in the comments or include @beyeager at the end so I can see it) +1
Mention this contest in a blog post (leave the link!) +2
Rule 4: Add up your score and submit the 100 words! :)
This contest closes FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time
Winners will be chosen at random (depending on number of points) and announced the following Monday.
(Also, prizes may vary slightly. Sometimes these go out of stock, but I'll choose a similar item or give a 30$ amazon giftcard if nothing is available.)
If you're freaked out about writing like Shakespeare, don't sweat it, just put up your favorite Shakespeare quote. It'll still be worth +2 points!
