The random drawing is open to bloggers on either the challenge grid or over at the speakeasy AND the drawing is open to our readers and lurkers who send virgins to either grid this week. If you’re not on a grid this week, just let us know in the comments which new yeah write blogger belongs to you.
All of this is our way of saying thanks for making yeah write and the speakeasy the best places on the Interwebs for writers who blog and bloggers who write.
“Best of yeah write” coming soon — do you have a ticket to ride?
The editors are combing through 100 weeks of challenge grids to come up with a “best of yeah write” grid from 2011-2013, and we will showcase the selections during #104 and #105. If you have ever won a lurker’s favorite, editor’s pick, crowd favorite or jury prize, start waiting anxiously by your mailbox PRONTO. If you have made the “best of yeah write” grid, we’ll send you a “best of yeah write” badge to display on your blog and an invitation to stop by to read what the editors enjoyed about each of their selections. We can’t wait to share our birthday glow with you.
Let’s get a move on!
These are the firm submission guidelines-
- your post must be dated March 31, or later
- the speakeasy is designed for submissions written specifically for the grid. Please do not submit an entry if you intend to showcase it to another blog link-up, because we’ll put the post up on blocks and you won’t get to go on the roadtrip.
- though your post is NOT about the photo you must make some reference to it
- you must start with the first line our last winner, Sandra, has provided. “The sun was setting when she finally arrived home.” Please do not post explanations, qualifications or other stuff prior to this sentence. If you need to clarify anything, feel free to do so briefly (like really briefly) at the end.
- your post is either fiction or poetry, including fictional accounts of true stories
- keep it 500 words or less
- badges for your post are found in the sidebar
Flood’s good advice bears repeating: Think about how everyone else might use the prompts and go in a different direction. Standing out usually gets you more votes, so get yourself in gear!How do we ride?
- the grid opens on Tuesday at 00:00 am EST
- the grid closes Wednesday at 11:59 pm EST
- voting all day Thursday, starting at 12:00 am and closing at 11:59 pm EST
- winners post Friday at noon EST
