Join the "Spring into Short Stories" Challenge


I’ve come up with a new challenge for spring and I’m hoping many of you will choose to participate.

This is the “Spring into Short Stories” challenge. The goal is to read some of those short stories many of us have gathering wool on our shelves or downloaded on our computers, such as the many I personally have saved.

The stories can be included within an anthology or stand alone.

Here are the rules:

1. The story must be less than 50 pages.

2. The story can be any genre.

That’s pretty simple, isn’t it? So, as you can see, there isn’t a lot of work to this challenge.

Anyone who wishes to participate must sign up by March 19 to be eligible for the prize drawing. However, you can join in at any time during the challenge.

Here’s how to get started:

1. Become a follower of the challenge blog (click on the link to find the blog site).

2. Add a comment to the sign-up post letting me know you’re participating.

Once you begin reading your stories, do a short review on your own blog, then add a comment and link at the end of the post for the appropriate week.

As an added bonus, I’m going to put together a prize package for this challenge. I’ll draw a name from all the entries at the end of the challenge, which runs from March 20 (the first day of spring) until July 20 (the last day of spring).

LuAnn, sorry about the mix up on the award. Started working on that this morning and realized I was guesting on Ginger's blog today and really needed to address that in my blog today. Check back tomorrow.
