CHRISTMAS EVE SHORT STORY CONTEST

Directions:

  • This is a Christmas Eve Short Story Contest, in which anyone who loves to write can submit a Christmas Eve Short Story by the 23rd, 11:59 PM will have a chance to win a guest post, and a shoutout on my sidebar for the whole year. Sounds pretty awesome, right?
  • All stories must have a Christmas Eve/Christmas in general theme. It must mention the word Christmas at least once or twice.
  • All stories must be 200-900 words long, 950 max. Please do not attempt to count the words as this would be very tiring. You can use wordcounter.net which is easier and less time consuming.
  • Please get your stories in on time, as I would have to write out the post with less than 3 hours to do so, and I strive for well-worded posts, I need all the time as possible.
  • Stories will be judged on creativity, plot, and grammar. I will be rating them out of ten, and the one with the closest to perfect score will be the winner. For example, if I rated a writer’s submission a 8/10 on creativity, 9/10 for plot, and 9/10 for grammar, they would most likely be the winner, whereas if someone got all 9/10s for creativity and plot, but a 6/10 for grammar, it could most likely ruin their chances at winning.
  • You may submit your story through google docs, which is the easiest to access. But if you must you can write it out VIA email, and send it to me that way.

Rules:

  • Have fun and be original!
  • Please do not cuss in your stories as it is unnecessary and unpleasant for me to read.
  • Submitting your story relatively late could ruin your chances at winning.
  • Don’t enter unless you are sure you can compete with wiggle room for you enjoy the holidays.
  • This is a christmas themed story competition, all stories must have a christmas theme and mention christmas at least once or twice.
  • Failure to adhere to these rules could as well ruin your chances at winning.

You can enter by clicking this link ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you so much for entering, and if you have any questions be sure to ask me in the comments and I’ll get back to you right away!

That’s about it for this first day, but don’t worry, we still have eleven days to go! So stay tuned!

Independence Day Blog Tour โ—Š Ft. Emmie & Diamond

Supโ€™.

As Independence Day slowly creeps upon us, the anticipation builds, until we (metaphorically) pop like a firecracker.

I love America, but I love my state as well. Weโ€™re popular for spicy foods, the untamed marsh, LSU Football, (GEAUX TIGERS), magnolia trees, pelicans, Alligators, benguets, Mardi Gras, Jambalaya, Crawfish, our crazy accents, jazz music, the weird way things are spelled, and so much more. (Now Iโ€™m hungry)

Which leads me to wonder,what do you like about your state?

I had the idea to do an Independence Day Blog Tour to celebrate our amazing country. Don’t get me wrong, I love other countries too! I’d love to live in Australia or Italy or an African country someday! But, I just thought that since most of the bloggers in our community are from the US, it would just be a US thing.

So I emailed Emmie and Diamond to see if they would like to host it with me.

They said yes!

Enough of the behind the scenes, I bet you’re all wondering why on earth youโ€™re reading this post.

Answer:

You can get involved in the ultimate blog tour. And itโ€™ll be awesome because Emmie and Diamond will be hosting it with me!

So, my friends, welcome, toโ€ฆ
