Suzanne's First Give-Away Contest

Since I so often extol the virtues of writing every day, what better place to write than in a visually stunning Paperblanks journal?

The people who make the Paperblanks journals couldn't agree more, so they have sponsored my first contest give-away!

If you would like a chance to win one of their journals, then read on...

Write a word-a-day entry using the word "habit" in the first sentence. The entry does not need to be a complete story, it can simply be the opening of something bigger. For examples of word-a-day entries, check out my word-a-day blog.

Minimum 100 words, maximum 300 words.

Post your submission in the comments section of THIS BLOG POST.

Deadline for submissions is two weeks from today: Tuesday, June 5th, at 10:00pm Eastern Daylight-Savings Time.

I will post a reminder next week about the contest.

Entries will be judged on:
- originality
- creative-but-not-obtrusive use of the word "habit"
- quality of the opening sentence in particular, but also in the overall submission (so please check for spelling and other such writerly details)
- enthusiasm-infusion within the piece

Watch this space for a picture of the journal to be won.

The winner will be contacted by Suzanne, so please include an email address for correspondence.

On your mark, get set with the word "habit" and...Go write!!!
