I think I just stumbled into my very first ever online contest. I've been afraid of the concept for a good long time now and then it just sort of announced itself in my brain following the facebook exchange detailed below. Figures that my pal Jonathan would be somehow involved. And Martha. Definitely Martha. (I L Y, JH and MF or MW or whatever your name is)
OK so it is very simple really - you have to fit the following sentence into your work in progress, in a believable fashion, and email me the pages:
"For me, every day brings sewn orifices!"
First person to do so gets a gift cert. from me.
OK, back to work.

Sophie LittlefieldOMG!!! OMG OMG, Jonathan, you have just made my day! That is the best quote ever!!!!!! Ten bucks to anyone who can fit that into their manuscript - seriously, first person who sends me their page or two with that sentence in it gets a gift cert. from the establishment of my choice. Wow, my first ever online contest!
