The last contest I did was fun for me, but it lacked in participation. Maybe my prize wasn’t good enough. Anyway, here’s the new contest:
Before, But After… – A One-Sentence Biography.
Craft a single sentence that provides a bit of depth on a character of your creation. Each biography should follow the format below.
Before he was arrested for tax evasion, but after his time as Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, Jeff Small worked as the greeter for a major retail chain.
Before her body hit the bottom, but after she jumped from the heights of the Grand Canyon, 23-year-old Jennifer Bennington discovered that she was happiest when falling.
The one-sentence biography can be about an existing character or a completely original character to this contest. You also don’t have to be a writer to enter the contest, just willing to participate.
To enter, just leave your sentence in the comments of this post. A winner will be chosen at random from among the participants.
The prize: This set of books.
Set includes The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, and The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens.
What are you waiting for?
The contest ends July 20th, 2012. All comments must be in by then. And like usual, I can only ship within the continental US.
