    April 2012 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Monday, April 2, 2012
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    Dead Bunnies

    I'm not even going to touch that one
    Write wherever the prompt inspires you, fiction or non-fiction, prose or poetry. Do try and keep things at a PG-13 level, though.

    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you!

    I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn.
    Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete your post. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread. If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

    Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post, and keep in mind we're not starting until later in the month to give people time to sign up.

    I'm taking a semi-break from blogging, but I do have an idea that deals with dead bunnies, sort of so, yeah, count me in:

    I missed last month's one due to travel, but I'll take this one on. Promise to be more active in my comments on other people's blogs, too.

    If you don't start early I'm good with being fifth on the list.

    For anyone having a hard time thinking of a topic, try reading this.
    Excerpts from Nonexistent Books - my literary blog and daily writing exercise all rolled up into one! Short sections of books that don't (and perhaps shouldn't) exist. Like what you see? Purchase a print or ebook version!

    Just found out I'll be in Tennessee, possibly away from the computer, April 3 to April 6. So I can start on April 2 OR on April 7 onward. Thanks!

    Since the chain itself starts on April 2, I'll just bump you down the list a bit.

    Uh, Oh! @ Dead Bunnies?! Hmm...it'll be very interesting where people go with this one, so, I'm in. Once upon a time, on a foggy morning, near the dense forest overlooking a lush green meadow sat four dead bunnies...nah, not feeling it, better get back to the drawing board on this one (thanks, Suzanne...)
