2nd place-award graphic, review of story and three additional reviews of your choice

3rd place-award graphic, review of story and two additional reviews of your choice.

 

DetailsOption #1- The Super Challenge 1. Pick a letter of the alphabet   2. Look under the spoiler to find your title.

Option #2-The "I like to keep my options open" Challenge  1. Look under the spoiler at the titles  2. Pick your letter.

Other Details:

  • When you post your interest, please include the title you'll be using.
  • There is no claiming. Titles may be used by more than one person. I loved to see how you interpret them differently.
  • You may add a byline to the title to help shape its meaning for your story.
  • Story must be new and posted on HPFT. It may be combined with other challenges but may not be additional chapters in a previously written story. 
  • The title must be the title of a story, not of a chapter. 
  • Judging will be based on the following: 30% writing style and quality, 30% creativity,  20% use of the title in the story, 10% mechanics, grammar etc., 10% because I just like it.

I'm so excited!

Note to Others: It doesn't really matter which option you choose. You can just tell me the letter.

Of course. I can't wait to see what you do with Zarfs. (BTW that was my new vocabulary while creating the list.)

No worries, Branwen. YOU are the original! 

 

I love the letters you all picked--such risk takers!

Absolutely! (E sounds more like your typical story anyways,--a fancy title that no one understands except the dictionary.)

Swirling Teacups of Terror (m)

I hope you will enjoy this story.  :)

Look forward to it. This title is actually what my husband calls the teacup ride at amusement parks becasuse he gets sick spinning in circles.
