The Liar Writing Challenge Results + New Challenge09:47
The entries also varied greatly in tone, which we enjoyed. Characters lied about everything from report cards to pregnancies, and it was interesting to see how each situation was handled.
When choosing the winners, we looked for lies that revealed big chunks of a person's disposition and character within the small space of an untruth.
And the winners are...
Sunday School Story by Leo1
The Taste Test by AmyMB
Naughty Mommy by leahcowden
Congratulations to the winners! You will receive a coupon code to PageToFame in your WEbook inbox shortly.
We're also going to add a new category this week, "The Reader's Choice Award." If your favorite entry didn't win, post the title and author in the comments section of this blog. In one week (7/21) we will tally the votes and award the author a PageToFame coupon. The ball's in your court, so cast a vote for your favorite entry. Go here to read through them again.
Note: We're going on the honor system here, please do not vote for your own entry or cast multiple votes. We hope to continue this award in the future, so be honest!
****Update: SPMount won "The Reader's Choice Award" with his submission, "'Series' Liar." Congratulations SP!
Also, Paula's last round of Writers Block has been officially cured by ReeVera, thanks so much! You can see all of Paula's videos on our YouTube Channel. Since Paula is no longer blocked, we're looking for other people with idea problems to do something fun with YouTube. Message bnaslund with any ideas!
The Next Writing Adventure:
The next writing challenge is The Memory Challenge and it's ready for your submissions. For this scene, authors must write a short scene where an object evokes a strong memory for a character. We looked forward to seeing what your objects and memories are!
Before you head off to vote and write (or do something else, if you must) check out Leo1's winning submission.
Sunday School Story
"What did you learn at Sunday School?" I asked my grandson.
"The story of the Exodus," he answered, hanging his coat on the hall hat stand. "After Moses left Egypt, Pharoh pursued him with a great army of chariots and men."
"Yes?" I said, leading him into the study. Sharing stories was best done there. "Go on."
"Moses was trapped against the sea. Pharoh had him and The Chosen People surrounded. Things looked bad until Moses called Sixth Fleet Headquarters and Navy SEALS Command. Carrier jets bombed the Pharoh's army while a nuclear submarine landed the SEALS, who built a pontoon bridge across the Red Sea allowing the Israelites to escape."
"Are you sure that's the way the story went," I asked with one half closed, skeptical eye.
My grandson lowered his head. "Well gram-pa," he answered reluctantly, "Not exactly, but you wouldn't believe the story the teacher told us."
