The gift of epic proportion:
Yes, that is the DeathStar in Legos.
Now, I adore Ruth, and Jon is aces in my book, but I already subscribe to CrimeSpree and I don't need TWO issues. So, what to do.
The steam was coming out of my ears.
A writing contest! And the prize is a subscription to CrimeSpree for a year! International entries will be ok, cause CrimeSpree has an international rate.
So, usual rules apply. Write a story using 100 words or fewer. Post in the comment section of this blog post.
Contest opens at NOON Friday (6/22) and closes at NOON on Saturday (6/23) (all Eastern Shark Time) so we can have time to pick the winner and get the subscription entered by the deadline.
Use the following words in the story:
The actual word must appear but can be part of a word and still qualify: cog/cogitate. It helps if you bold or underline the word prompt in your entry.
The way to underline or bold is:
Put < b > (no spaces) in front of the word and < /b > (no spaces) at the end of the word you want bold
Put < u > (no spaces) in front of the word and < /u > (no spaces) at the end of the word you want underlined
If you need a mulligan, delete your comment and try again. The LAST entry is your final one. (It will help if you compose in a document first, rather than actually in the comment block)
