Such a busy time of year, but it might be worth it to respond to this Story Weekend post, because Sunday night I’ll use the random number generator to select a winner from all blog comments made over the last two months. The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate for the bookstore–online or bricks and mortar–of her/his choice. So share your favorite Christmas memory with us. I’d love to hear it!
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
