LOL, I'm all about a prize. Let's let the blog readers think up some ideas shall we?
Anyone have any thoughts?
I have to warn you girl. When it comes to the word “competitive” my name is next to it in the dictionary. You are so TOTALLY on!
AWESOME! I'm so glad the two of you are doing this! (And SO thankful I'm already done! Mwa-ha-ha-ha!) Sorry, couldn't help that deep, gut-wrenching, evil cackle! Have fu-u-u-n!!! 🙂 Mwa-ha-ha-ha. Oops. Slipped out again.
You girls definitely need a prize. For me the satisfaction of winning would be more than enough. I'm kinda competitive like that. But I still think there should be a prize…OR… something embarrassing the loser has to do. Sometimes that is way more fun!!!
Oh yeah, a prize would be great…how about the 'loser' (though neither of you will be a loser since you'll both get lots of editing done!) has to post a guest blog about their editing process on the winner's blog?
I love a little healthy competition! As long as it doesn't involve running!
Oh my goodness! I check my blog during my lunch break and I find all these AWESOME comments! Krista, I'm with you….do them all!!!! lol
And Jody, I think all your rewrites have sent you over the edge, girl! lol Buwahahaha, indeed! lol
And Karen, seriously? A real mystery box prize? How cool!!! Amazing!
Oh, what a great motivator, Sherrinda! I'm so glad that you found someone who's willing to put in the (extra) effort.
I should find someone who
s just starting to rewrite and can manage 76k by April – that's pretty impossible.
Good luck, and definitely keep us updated. I look forward to hearing all about it!
Ya know, a couple writer-ly friends of mine and myself recently participated in a 'Who could out-word' one another contest. The prize for the most words down on paper (or computer screen) was dinner at a restaurant of the winner's choosing.
The bad news is I got skunked (by something like 30,000 words–didn't know anyone could really write 40,000+ words in two weeks, I learned the hard way….). The good news is that I got dinner too.
