Thirty. I never thought I'd live this long.
Anyway, now that I am Old, it's time for the second of my annual Book Giveaways, where I run a little competition to win a pack of erotica books. It's a bit more complicated this time around, so there will actually be RULES! Here they are:
(i) This is an erotic microfiction writing competition. The prize is a pack of random erotica books. I have two to give away, so there will be two winners!
(ii) To enter, you have to write a piece of fiction (preferably in the erotic or romantic genre) of approximately 30 words (you can have five either way) to represent the 30 years that I've managed to survive on this God-forsaken dustball. Keep it sharp, keep it snappy, keep it sexy, but try to keep it under 35 words. Just a snippet.
(iii) You can post it on your own blog if you wish, but please do link back to this post if you do. Other ways to enter: post it as a comment here, or if you really must, do e-mail me your story, but you have to be OK with me reposting your story on ILB if you do that.
(iv) The winners will be judged by myself and possibly Jillian Boyd and/or another blogger or two.
(v) If you win, you must be okay with sending me a name and address to send it to. You can use a pseudonym if you like, but bear in mind that this will be sent in the post so people may see what's on the packet.
(vi) No number six.
(vii) And the time limit... you have one week! Please enter by Tuesday 24 March!
I quite like writing microfiction, so here's an effort by myself, to break the ice:
* * *I thought of her.
How I felt her in whatever I did. How she made me fall so effortlessly into her. How my heart pounded as she whispered my name.
And how wet I was.
* * *
35 words exactly!
So get writing! My wings are a-flappin' in anticipation to see what you all can come up with!
