March 16th Challenge

Hi, it’s Christina –

EEK! I wasn’t going to do a blog post again today, because I’ve been hopping and bopping since six this morning, and I still have a ton to do; but then I got an email notification stating my raffle contest has started. YIKES!! I haven’t even told you guys about it yet.

For the next month, I’m running a contest on my blog, and the winners will be chosen by Rafflecopter. Thank God this was easy to set up, because y’all know what a thechno ditz I am. Anyway, part of the contest is to comment on the blog, and it’s kinda hard to leave a comment, if I don’t make a blog post. You also get extra points if you actually answer the challenge. Each point gives you one entry into the drawing. The prizes range from all three copies of my books, signed, and two bookmarks to electronic book of choice by the winner.

Notice I said three books? Well Corporate Blues is now available on Kindle, and hopefully in the next ten days – two weeks, the paperbacks will be available as well.

Okay, I really have a ton to do today, so let’s get right to the challenge. I hope y’all have a great day, and happy writing!

Your Last Challenge was:

Scratch that, reverse it…

Did you recognize it? Do you know where it’s from? It’s a line from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. One I heard when I was a young child, and still use today whenever I get my words all cuffuggled. You know what I mean, right? The second after something comes out of your mouth and you say to yourself, “Wait a minute, that didn’t make any sense!”

What is truly alarming is the frequency lately I’ve been saying, “Scratch that, reverse it.” Whether it’s age or simply having a million balls up in the air at the same time, I don’t know, but it’s a bit disconcerting to say the least. Perhaps it’s just my body’s way of saying you need a break to recharge your batteries. So, if you hear me say something that doesn’t sound quite right, either ignore me or hand me a chocolate bar.

(A little silly, and rather lame, but my mind wasn’t really on the challenge today. Hopefully you had better luck.)

Your Next Challenge is:

Write a story containing the following: A House Plant, A Rug, Glass

You have 10 minutes (be honest). There is no right or wrong, just write. Spelling and punctuation don’t count and NO ONE is allowed to criticize what someone else has written. Go.
