Here's the lowdown: I want your story! Any story will do -- but it has to be yours or your family's story. I would PREFER it to be new-to-us-all, but that isn't a requirement -- it can be a previously-run-on-your-blog story. My goal is to simply get all of us in 'storytelling' mode about ourselves.
Here's how you play:
- Post your story on your own blog.
- Include this code at the top of your post (for the button):
- Sign the 'Mr. Linky' below, linking to the permalink of your storytelling post, NOT the front page of your blog. (Instructions on how to do that are here).
- Post your story anytime between today (August 14) and August 31.
- A winner will be chosen at random -- this is not a writing-skills contest, simply a get-it-down contest! -- on Sept. 1. Prize info posted soon.
- If you don't have a blog, you may email me your entry. If you also give your permission, I will post it on my blog (not a requirement).
(edited: currently having trouble getting the code for the button -- can only show the button. Stay tuned, get writing!)
Sharpen your pencils and get writing! Can't wait to hear your stories!
