Writing Challenge of July, 2014


So...guess who just hit seventy followers?
I thank each and every one of them. ♥♥♥ I'm thrilled. Although I used to have over 140 on my other blog...I'm still glad that I moved blogs. A lot of things worked when they hadn't before.
Now. I remember my promise. I said I'd create a writing challenge when I got to seventy followers, and so, here it is.

Anyone of any age can enter, I'd love it if everyone of my followers entered, but, sadly, I know that won't happen.
Here are the guidelines (there is no prize but glory and congratulations, sorry):

1. You can write anything, really; a chapter, a poem, a haiku, a short story, a song, even a quote (of your own, of course) if you like. A devotion is also acceptable.
2. All entries must be in before or on Wednesday the 30th of July, 2014. But after the 30th, I won't be taking anymore entries.
3. I'll announce the winner and the runner up (second place) on Thursday the 31st of June.
4. I'll be choosing the winner, which means, no random selection, and no poll.
5. Have fun. Be creative. Let your (as some people say) inner self flow. I hope that if you do enter, you enjoy writing for this challenge.
6. You are welcome to use a picture of your own or from Pinterest, as long as you give credit and link back.
8. To enter, post your link in a comment. (The link of the post that contains your entry, on your blog)

Oh, and, maybe you wouldn't mind putting the button below on your sidebar (if you're entering)? I would so love it if you did.
Fifth out of Ten Writing Challenge

Thank you so much for reading this. I can't wait to (hopefully) receive entries...

  1. Quick question, do you mean the 20th of JULY??

    This sounds like such fun! I hope to enter, but I cannot promise anything. . .

    1. Hey, Sarah! Yes, I did have it as the 20th of July, but I have changed it to the 30th, since I realized only one week might prove to be quite inconvenient for some people who want to enter.
      I really hope you do enter!

  2. *squeals* Yay! Oh, this is so exciting. I hope you get many entries, and many more followers. ;)

    Though I am very busy--at the moment, at least--I will try my very best to enter. :}

    Have a blessed day. <3

    xoxo,

    1. Heyy! Thank you! No, I'm afraid that this writing challenge is completely free style - I don't have prompts for it.

    2. Thank God! I hate prompts.

    1. Hey Mel! Thanks for visiting my blog. :) When you are done, you can publish your entry on your blog, and then put the link on this post in a comment. Or, if you prefer, you can send it to me via email. Either is OK with me. ♥

  15. Hi, Tane! Congratulations on the 70 followers! You really deserve it. :DDD

    I'll try to enter... I don't know. Honestly, I've been feeling kind of down in the dumps lately. I cry into my pillow every night. In fact, I'm supposed to be asleep to help paint the shed in my backyard, but all I can do is think. For the past several days, I try to talk to people but they won't listen to me and hear my opinion out. I've been slowly fading away from RL and the blogging community and I've been trapping myself in a hermit-like state. I just don't feel like anyone listens or hears what I have to say, but then, it's kind of always been like that for me in my life. I keep planning posts and scheduling them than writing them on the spot because I don't know if I'll be absent from this community. I just don't feel welcome.

    Well, I put your writing contest button on my blog and will be sending people to check it out.

    xoxo Morning

    1. Hey, Morning :)
      Thank you so much!

      I would be so happy if you did enter.
      And, listen, YOU have a lot to say, a lot of beautiful stuff to say. I will listen to you, because I can see that you are an inspiring, sweet, cheerful, sunny girl (I totally get why they call you Morning), who sheds light on other people's lives, and sometimes, those types of girls give so much to others, without receiving what they need back.

      I hope that you are feeling well soon, and when you're back, let me know. :) I love your blog...you are so welcome, Morning.
      Thank you so much for putting my button up.
