(I can't believe I never celebrated this before now)!
Five years ago today, I published my first ever blog post. I was eight back then and I even had a different nickname. ;)
In celebration of this event, I'm giving away free chapter critiques.
That's right. Three lucky winners will win a free one chapter (max 2,000 words) critique, critiqued by me.
(Don't worry, I'm not mean).
How do I enter?
1. Write up a short story about a dog experiencing summer for the first time. What does he think of it all? What does she see or smell? No more than 1,000 words, please.
Post the story on your blog, and link back to my blog on the post. If
you don't have a blog, you can e-mail
me at themagicviolinist(AT)gmail(DOT)com.
3. Post a comment saying that you've entered and leave a link to your blog.
4. Submit your entries by July 21st. That gives you two weeks.
I will be posting the three winners on my blog, so subscribe if you
want to find out if you won! You can subscribe to my blog by e-mail if
you scroll up to the upper, right corner.
6. Have fun! :D
I will be judging based on mainly creativity, but if your story has too many spelling or grammar mistakes, I will most likely ignore it (sorry, but I have little patience for those sorts of things). Spellchecker is your friend.
Any questions? Please e-mail me at themagicviolinist(AT)gmail(DOT)com.
Are you ready? Get set . . . GO!!!! :D

I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
