I'm offering up two chances to win Amazon (or online book seller of your choice) gift cards!

Enter up to your first 250 words of a WIP. :-)

Aaack; beginnings are the bane of my existence! But Regan's contest was so fun, I might be able to shape up one of them.

Can it be from a short story?

Oh yeah, it can be from whatever you want!

I wish I could have entered Regan's contest. I need to just pick a picture and do it for fun.

You should write one on one of the pictures! We'd love to read it. I hearby transfer you my Honorable Mention just for doing it, although some of the Honorable rubbed off already ;)

Beginnings are my bane as well but with only 250 words, who's to say what's backstory or infodump? LOL Plus, I's gots lots o' beginnin's...it's gettin' to the end that's the challenge.

Haha! Thanks for handing me what was left of your honorable-ness! :-P

And amen on getting to the end. I feel like a snail with my wip!

One and a half days left to enter! :-) I'm loving reading the entries so far. I'm such a sucker for beginnings.

2 hours left! :-)

Yay! The entries are awesome :) I kept writing new parts of my WIP when I tried to polish up any beginning for the contest, lol. That's always good, anyway :)

Good luck, y'all!

They were really great! I loved reading through them! I'm excited to see who my judges pick, too. :-)

And the poll is up on the blog for the other winner! Come read the entries and vote!
