Blog Anniversary

(I can't believe I never celebrated this before now)!

fireworks, celebration, anniversary, blog, five

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.

2. 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.

5. 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

Wowzers. You've been blogging for a long time. I didn't start until I was fourteen, so I've only been blogging for three years.

Congratulations! Wow, you've been blogging for longer than I have... O_o

Congrats on such a milestone anniversary! I feel like such a latecomer to the party, since I didn't start blogging till my 30s. I console myself (sort of) by realizing that the internet didn't exist when I was 8 or even 13... :P
