The contest: Using a word they provide, using it exactly as written (so no making it past tense, shortening it, etc.) write a story that's no longer than 140 characters, including punctuation and spaces.
In essence: A story the length of a tweet.
Writers had to register in advance, and then we were placed in groups and assigned our word. We had 5 hours to come up with our stories, and we could submit up to three.
I was in group 13. Our word: special.
Something like 1,000 stories came in. The top 25 stories in each group were chosen by judges. They're now listed where readers vote to determine which ones proceed to the next round.
Here's where I need your help: TWO of my stories made it!
(Can I hear a WAHOOO?!)
Read my stories (and the other finalists in my group) HERE.
Then help me move to the next round. To vote for both of my stories, CLICK HERE.
Thanks in advance!!!
Post Script: I was on ABC4's Good Things Utah this morning showing another recipe from the book. I'll link over to the clip when it's available.
NOW VOTE! :)
