Favorite Campaign Challenge Entries

Hey everybody! In case you didn't stop by over the weekend, I had a figure skating competition on Saturday and to tell you the truth it went pretty well! I skated my best out there (I didn't land two of my jumps though) and had lots of fun! And I got fifth place out of six, so I didn't get last! (The funny thing is, we went skating again yesterday and I was able to land my jumps fine! Oh well, I guess that's just how it goes...)

I've also been developing new story ideas, and I'm so excited! This whole thing is just so new to me! I wasn't exactly sure if I'd be ready to start another story for a while after finishing up with editing for my current one (I'm not done with that yet, don't worry). Turns out, I've been getting ideas everywhere and need to take a notebook wherever I go or I'm going to explode with too much information inside me!

Anyway, I'd like to share with you my favorite Campaign Flash Fiction entries, and make sure to 'like' them on the Campaign First Challenge if you really like their flash fiction piece! (There were so many great entries and so many that I loved, but of if I tried to make a list of all my favorites I think you guys might get bored. Congrats to everyone who participated!)
  1. The Soulless over at Imagination to Publication. This one seriously creeped me out but I loved it!
  2. In the Closet over at Feel of Something New. I thought this one was a little creepy too, but I liked how the feeling of the passage was different than most of the other ones I read (I guess it was the 'feel of something new'!)
  3. Animate over at The Lobster Tank. I really liked the passion in this passage and I loved the sad hope that the person feels!
  4. The Open Door over at Niiganab. I love rhyming poetry! I can't get enough of it! I thought this was a very great poem for the challenge!
  5. The War over at Jessica Love Writes. This one reminded me of Middle School (LOL) and it made me laugh.
Hope you enjoy!

Thanks! I'm glad you liked Animate. And I don't think I've read any of these other ones... time to go check them out!

Congrats on not placing last! I used to ride horses, and felt that way in the few shows I did... that it was a good experience overall... I had fun... and I didn't place last :)

Yeah, that's the way it goes, but only sometimes. I'm sure you will do better next time. Congrats though on not being last!

Instead of carrying a notebook around you may have an option to record any new ideas on your cellphone or just save it as text. That's what I do.

Thanks for the list of these entries as well. Looking forward to read.

Thanks so much for linking my entry! :-D

You know, it always happens that way. When you are under pressure you mess up on the easiest things, but then when no one is watching and it doesn't matter, everything is perfect. Yay for not last!

Thanks for the heads up that I wasn't following your blog, Jess!

I've fixed it now.

Angel Snyder said...

Congrats for not taking last! :P I know how that feels...
Anyway, thank you for voting for Possession by Elana Johnson for which book I should giveaway! I was leaning toward that one as well! :)

You figure skate? That's so totally awesome. Now I want to be like you. =)

Did you actually get through all the entries? I tried. If I wasn't in the middle of revisions on a requested manuscript... *sigh* I need a time turner. You don't have one on hand do you?

Keep a mini-composition book in your purse or pocket. That's what a lot of my writing friends do (me included) and it's wonderful. Anytime something strikes, you have something on which to jot down ideas, quotes, characters, titles...whatever comes to mind.

By the way, I'm passing along The Versatile Blogger award to you! For more info, go here:

Thanks for the mention. As you can see, I've missed this post somehow. I'm taking the time between now and the 28th to mostly read.

I'm not sure about that reader. I look through it and click, then end up reading almost every post that someone has written.

My nieces were into gymnastics so I know the level of dedication that takes. They still do the exercises and such even though they found out it wasn't the love of their life.
