So. I have a challenge/contest for you. But I also need help. This contest serves three purposes:
Purpose 1: I've never held a contest like this before, so it's a first. W00T!
Purpose 2: Exercise your creativity. You need it. I'm doing you a favor.
Purpose 3: I need this for a story idea.
Who: IF YOU'RE READING THIS YOU MUST DO IT. MWAHAHHAHA. Not really. But please do. It'll only be really fun if a lot of people do it. All you people who read faithfully and never comment, this is your day to comment.
What: A funny family contest. Everyone's family is weird. Some more than others, but we're all weird.
I need your funny stories.
Your little incidents. That one relative and how they always do (you fill in the blank). How you can count on your aunt to start a food fight, or the way your uncle never calls anyone by their real name. Stuff like that.
Tell me, and I'll post some of my favorites, and maybe put it in this story... (if you don't mind, I'll ask you first). I'll also give you credit if my story ever gets anywhere XD
Oh yeah. And an award. I think that's pretty standard for blog contests :D
When: RIGHTNOW. And until, oh, I don't know...til next Saturday. The 24th.
Where: Here. You can post your stories or funny bits as comments, or you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why: I covered that already in the little Purposes thing.
How: That's kinda with Where. So scroll up if you missed that.
Please do it. Even if you think you have nothing to offer, try. Oh, and here's the best part:
They don't actually have to be true. You can make them up! Of course, when you get your imagination going, you might decide to keep the ideas for your own stories! That's awesome too, but if you wouldn't mind, tell me anyway just for the contest part. I won't use anything unless it's okay with you.
So yeah. I know this was sudden and really jumbled, but...do it XD I'll know if you didn't. There is a page views thingie and a thingie that tells where you are in the sidebar >:D
