Since a lot of you who visit me here are writers... The fabulous C.J. Redwine is offering an amazing contest over at her blog The Last Word. And she has the most amazing way to enter. Here's a bit from her blog:
Are you an aspiring writer who needs a professional critique of your work? Are you entering the Golden Heart and need a critique of your contest entry? Do you enjoy bragging rights and the thought of taking on Twilight and shaping it to your own nefarious, er, I mean creative purposes? Then this is the contest for you!
Rules:1. Take the first sentence of Twilight (below) and use it as the beginning of a 500 word piece of writing. Hook the reader with humor, drama, suspense, or beautiful prose! I don't care if you stick with the vampire plot from Twilight or take us in a totally different direction.
So get on over there and enter! I'm gonna go read the entries -- can't wait to see what people come up with!
