A seasonal writing challenge
It’s that time of the year again! When you’re sitting by the window procrastinating (as always), searching for some candy in that sock hanging from the fireplace (no, it’s not just any sock, it’s that special red one with a white fluffy lining, you know) and eagerly awaiting those precious snowflakes to fall. It’s the season to be jolly after all. And even if we each have something special in mind (or even two, if like me you have a birthday coming up too!) then you are definitely in for some Christmas (and New Year) cheer!
To help get into the mood this season, I’ve decided to enter a writing/blogging competition. ‘Coz nothing says excitement like a good challenge! And it is thrilling! And fun! BlogFestivus 2012: a seasonal short story writing challenge promises to bring the candy to your cane and the icing on your cake! The aim is this: nine short stories (243 words to be exact) in nine days (11-19 December) about nine reindeer (yes, Santa’s, I don’t really know any other!).
So, follow me and engage in the adventures of Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and of course, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and get ready for the most wonderful time of the year! Just don’t forget those mince-pies in the oven!
