My First Ever Online Contest!!!

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!

Just did it and thank you - worked perfectly for my main character. Last day of NaNo for first draft, so probably won't be able to show you an actual page for a bit. I won't be first to meet the requirements, but I love the direction this scene is now moving in!

hey, inkgrrl, don't take yourself out of the running yet. i'm so excited to have any entries at all - you may be the only brave one! And can I just say I cannot wait to see those pages!!

That's a neat idea.

I think I can fit that in my WIP too. Is there a deadline for your contest? :)

Nope, no deadline - just whoever shows up first. How fun! :)
