NaNoWriMo Day 10: Wide-Eyed Abandon and A Little Writing Game For You (Complete with Prize!)

My imagination loves to run wide-eyed with abandon through the fields of wonder.  This is why I love writing.  I take that freedom to extremes sometimes, making it all the more fun.  I’ve explored castles in ancient times, played with dragons, swum with sharks, visited other worlds, disappeared into swamps…all in my head, of course.

But, admittedly, sometimes I get stuck.  So, I invented a little game that helps with that.  And, I thought tonight, I would challenge you to play that game, and would reward the “best” entry with a free e-copy of my book “Nobody’s Girl,” which will be released by the end of November.  You have until then to complete the contest and submit your entry to my email address: juanitamillhouse@yahoo.com.  Subject heading should read “Writing Game.”

The rules are simple.  Begin the story at Photograph 1, and somehow lead it to Photograph 2.  Do this in 500 words or less.  Be as ridiculous, humorous, dramatic or as straight-laced as you like.  The prize will go to the most creative entry, and will be announced on December 1.  That’s it.  Enjoy!
