A contest and my free write
So I have a new blogging buddy, Christine H. at http://thewritershole.blogspot.com/who in all her glory is having a 100 blogger contest with a fantastic first prize! You have got to get over there and check it out, its a great resource for a writer. There's a good second and third prize too, but what can I say, the writer thing really got me :) anyway here's the linkiness to her blog 100 blogger contest
I've found some interesting things on fellow bloggers blogs :) heres what I enjoyed on the web this week, and what might benefit you:
emerging writer (short story competition)
Romancing the blogs ( publisher looking for submissions)
red means go ( a new store with funny cartoons)
Awesome music about writing(funny)
Now for some free writing: Its Friday 13th!!!! I'm not superstitious, so black cats, salt, ladders, mirrors do not scare me. Actually when I was in 5th grade my best girlfriend and I would rent every Freddy Crugar and Jason movie and stay up all night eating now and laters watching horror movies. Fun times, I used to even write some spooky stories, or what I thought was spooky at the time. I looked and looked and looked- but I can't find them. But I did find a spooky little poem I wrote....
by summer Ross
Ragdoll come out of the closet
share your nightmare tales.
Walk to my bed on backward legs
climb sheets with bitten hands,
whispering in my sleep subconcious
of all shadowmare land.
Let the words fall from splintered lips,
to fill my precious dreams.
Let out all the horrible things I fear,
tell of creatures with fired wings,
tell of animals that give chase
watch sweat drip from my brow.
Don't let up, till I'm upright
and let out the familiar scream.
