Get Your Game Face On!

Hello! So I'm in the middle of spring break right now :) I'm at home right now, but later this week we're going to Chicago! We were going to stay with my aunt and uncle, but sadly we changed our plans so we're only going for a day trip! I can't wait though, serious. Pizza, popcorn, stores, business. SO MUCH FUN! I really wanted to go to the Hello Kitty Store (also known as Sanrio) but it closed in Chicago so we can't go. I was seriously devastated but then again, there are so many other fun things to do!

Ok so, first off I've got a lot of you interested in book club! This will be our official sign up post! Comment if you wanna sign up and I'll put your name down! Don't worry, if you wanna drop out after a while or if you signed up on impulse, don't feel bad, just let me know. Later we will have book suggestions and all that fun stuff!

The main reason for this post. We've been doing a sentence story for a long time now! I think it's finally time to end it! I was proud though because we had 17 writers including me! Nice work everybody at telling your friends. So this time I thought I'd do something a little different with the contest. Just a little, don't get too excited now :)

There will be two chances to win a prize.

  • Prize #1 is the rights of the first sentence of the next sentence story! You can win it if you read the story through and come up with the best title for it! That is open to anybody whether or not they participated or not.
  • Prize #2 is a guest post and shout out on my blog :) This you can win if you write the best ending of the story because we have to finish it off! I ask that you try to not leave any giant loopholes, but I understand that sometimes that's inevitable. Please read the story through before you start writing so you catch yourselves up on the twists and turns we've already taken. This one is only open to people who participated :) You can email your entry in to julya.emmance@gmail.com 
Both the title and ending are due on April 28, 2013! As long as you get it in any time on that day or before, I'll except your entry! 
I won't except your entry if 
  • It appears you haven't read the story 
  • You have huge grammatical and punctuational mistakes
  • You leave a huge loophole 
  • You didn't participate in the story
  • You get it in too late
I'm really crossing my fingers for entries here because all the other times I've only gotten one which is quite discouraging. Thanks so much Hilda
Anyway so click HERE to get read the story and get your game face on!
July

  6. I would love to enter both the contest and be part of the book club? Can I please do both? :)
    Ooh, Sanrio. I can't get enough of that store, crazy prices or not. But I'm doing the April session of Camp NaNoWriMo, so expect my ending and title quite a bit later...

  7. First off I wanna join book club. Secondly What do you mean by a loop hole in the ending of the sentence story?

    1. Ok sweet! I'll mark you down as well :)

      A loophole is like an obvious thing that you changed or forgot about. Say in the beginning of a story the grandpa died and at the end he somehow comes mysteriously back to life because the author forgot he died.
      Get it now? It's kinda hard to explain....

Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'd really appreciate if you could give me a follow as well *hint, hint* These "about-me's" are literally the hardest things to write, but I'll have a go at it. You can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. I live in a very culturally proud little town that borders beautiful beaches, giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, ice-berg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I hope to make it through high school and head off to college for, well, I don't know yet, but whatever it is, it'll be something I love. Robotics, books, movies, and music of all genres are kinda my thing. I would basically consider myself to be one of those stereotypical girls who fall desperately in love with fictional boys... I have a strange obsession with tea drunken from cute elephant mugs. So grab a cuppa and strap yourselves in for some brilliant stuff coming soon!
