FINISH THAT THOUGHT #23
This time of year tends to bring out the best and worst in people, and our judge has a little bit of both in store for you today. Speaking of Christmas... I just now realized that Tuesdays fall on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve this year. Show of hands (or, you know, let me know in the comments) of who's going to be around then...and if you're around, could you judge if you won? Just curious if we should break for a couple weeks OR if you'll be off and have tons of time to write and really want a prompt. :) I'm good with either. Anyway, enough business talk, get writing!
If you need to read the full version of the rules, go here. Otherwise, here's the short version:
1. Up to 500 words
2. Keep it clean (nothing rated R or above)
3. Start with the given first sentence.
4. Optional Special Challenge
5. Include Twitter/email, word count, Special Challenge accepted
6. The challenge is open for 24 hours on Tuesday EST
Oh, and feel free to change pronouns, punctuation, tense, and anything in brackets to fit the story/pov/tone. I'm not going to be TOO picky... Our judge however...
Our Judge today is Rebecca J Allred also known as @LadyHazmat. Check out her blog here. Read her winning tale from last week here!
Your first sentence for FINISH THAT THOUGHT #23 is:
This, to me, represents love.
Your SPECIAL CHALLENGE from the judge is:
