CHARACTER COUNT!

I am putting this in caps and emphasizing, since most of you have disregarded the rules of putting how damn long your entry is, in the ones I've moderated so far.

Go comment again. Tell me your name and how long your entry is! And the rest of you, please put character count in. It makes judging far, far easier. =) Thank you!

I'm just curious...can we only enter once? Or are we allowed multiple entries?

Jenny Rae Rappaport said...

One entry only, PurpleClover, except that I want the character count from the people who didn't put it in their entries the first time.

Wow, I must say, I just happened across your blog by way of Literary Rambles and you are a Jill of all trades! Agenting, writing, yarn-dying (sales no less)! Is there anything you don't do?!

lol. Glad to have found your blog.
=)

PurpleClover, I cannot dance to save my life, although I love to dance at weddings and parties. =) Does that make me human?

do the parentheses and numbers count in the total number of characters?

PurpleClover said...

No, that makes you family. You must be a long-lost aunt or something. :)

(Notice I said "no" as though my family is inhuman...subconscious)

californiameaghan, the parentheses and numbers DO NOT COUNT towards your total characters. =)

I hope all the people who entered read this post. There were some awesome entries that lacked the character count.

Sorry --I'm guilty. I didn't use Twitter, so I wasn't exactly sure how many characters I had.

According to word, I had 124characters.

My name is Teri, my email is tkanefield@gmail.com

I am a writer, and my entry was this one:

The zygote taunted the banana for his phallic shape, so the banana split. Later, after slipping on a peel, the zygote cried, "I wanted the last word!"

I really wanted to do this. But didn't have time. Now I'm looking forward to see who the winner is.

Oh man! Only now am I reading these comments. I didn't know there was a one entry per person rule. I repent!

If you would bestow your good graces on me, please ignore all my entries after the first! If you would not, then I'll understand if I'm disqualified :-(
