Writing Contest!

Fun new writing contest going on over at Rachelle Gardner's blog, Rants & Ramblings. Check it out:

The Yo-Dawg-Show-Me-What-You-Got
Double Decker CHALLENGE
~ R&R’s Inaugural Writing Contest ~

Why a Double Decker, you ask? Well, because this is a TWO PART contest. And why Yo-Dawg? Because I think Randy Jackson is the coolest, naturally, and because American Idol is on tonight.


THE CHALLENGE: I will give you the first line for a novel. You will write the first page of the novel, 300 words max.

BUT, here’s the kicker. That’s the SECOND part of the contest. The first part is:

YOU will send me the first line of the novel. Woo hoo, isn’t this fun???

WE HAVE PRIZES, TOO. I will award a prize to one winner in each part of the Challenge. What’s the prize? I’ll give an evaluation of the WIP of your choice (WIP=work in progress) , either a query, a book proposal, or the first ten pages of a novel. If I am feeling really generous, this might even include a phone call, we'll see. Yes, there will be TWO winners. Unless the same person wins both parts of the Challenge…we’ll cross that bridge if we come to it.

Hey, isn't this Kristen Billerbeck and Jenny B Jones' agent, is it?

It does look like an excellent contest- too bad I wouldn't be able to take advantage of the prize.

Thanks for the shout-out, CJ!

Wordvixen---I think Jenny's agent is Chip MacGregor (he also has a response in this series), but I'm not sure about Kristen's.
