Contest Time – Spring 2014

Welcome logo

 Greeting from sunny southwest Florida.
I’m so glad you stopped by, and I hope you’ll come back again.

ITS CONTEST TIME!!

There’s no special reason.  No milestones.  No new blog or website.
My latest book isn’t due to release for months.
It’s just because it’s SPRING! 

Spring2I’m keeping it simple, and I hope everyone will have a little fun with it.
So, here are the details.

SPRING 2014 CONTEST!

SpringStarts: April 1, 2014 XXXXX Ends: April 30, 2014

Requirements: Write an ALPHABET STORY*
On April 1st, see the starting letter below.

Send it to me at Dayna@DaynaLCheser.com
or, JulieCJ@aol.com
Entries MUST have your name and regular mail address.
(some prizes are physical items that will be mailed to the winners).

The number of winners will depend on how many entries are received.
Winners will be announced in my blog on May 12, 2014

*If you don’t know what an ALPHABET STORY is, click on CONTESTS (above),
then click on ALPHABET STORIES
and read stories from previous contests. 
It’s a simple concept – a 26-sentence story, each sentence beginning with
successive letters of the alphabet. 
A winning entry will read like prose,
so you
don’t realize it’s an Alphabet Story.  Judges decision is final.

ON APRIL 1ST, I WILL ANNOUNCE
THE
FIRST LETTER OF THE CONTEST
IN THE SPACE BELOW,
and in notices via Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn. 

~_____D_____~

Added on 4/6/2014: 
No word limit, but only one sentence per letter.
And, yes, you can enter more than once, but only win once.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Sample beginning of a story if the first letter is H.
He said he loved me and wanted to marry me.
I didn’t feel the same way about him.
Just because we’d dated for a year didn’t mean I loved him.
Kiss me,” he demanded. “I’ll show you I love you.”
Listen to me, Paul. I don’t love you!”

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

I hope to see YOUR Alphabet Story among the entries!

    • Hi Caitlin, and Welcome!
      Very good question! There is no word limit, but please: one sentence per letter. That keeps it manageable.
      Please stop by again.

  1. Found you through Twitter. This is a very informative site and great for my Facebook page, just in case my author friends have missed seeing it.
