Weekend writing contest!
The Devotion of Suspect X is one of the books I'm most looking forward to cheering on in 2011. I beguiled the editor into sending me a copy so early it was still in manuscript form, but he got his revenge: I didn't have anyone to talk to about the book for months!
Well, let's solve that problem. Let's have a writing contest and the prize will be a copy of the book! You'd kill to get your hands on this if you knew how good it was.
So, write a story using 100 words or fewer. Post it in the comment section of THIS blog post starting Friday at midnight (that is 27 hours from now: Eastern Shark Time)
Use these words in the story:
Mulligans or do-overs are fine. I'll take the last version posted. Try not to post more than once though, ok?
Previous winners can compete.
The contest runs for 24 hours, midnight Friday to midnight Saturday. You snooze, you get eaten by envy for losing out.
