My friend and blogging buddy, the lovely Elise Fallson, and moi, will be celebrating our blog-o-versaries.
You know Elise? I'm sure you do! For those of you who may have forgotten, let me jog your memory… she of the “plywood mini-Alex fame” (she’s super- talented, in more ways than one… she’s written a fantasy novel which is currently with her editor… she’s a great cartoonist and photographer and is super-knowledgeable about all sorts of insects…) and “posterior-extremity-explosion-fame during the And You Are bloghop” *giggles* (yes she’s also a wonderfully crazy lady)! Elise and I met during A-Z and we just hit it off right away.
She is celebrating her first year blogoversary and this is my second. During the past two years I’ve met lots of wonderful people, participated in numerous blogfests, completed two A to Z challenges and written loads of flash fiction… blah, blah, blah. Enough of that.
Now, it's time to celebrate! And to do that, Elise and I decided to get together and organize the:
Now try not to groan so loud guys, I know there are a lot of bloghops popping up in February, but hear us out because this is going to be fun, easy and different. Yes, different because we don't know any better and wanted to do something a little off the wall, plus there will be prizes! So, instead of asking you all to write on a theme, we're going to put you in the screen writers chair and ask you to write some dialogue all in good fun. So here's what you do:
1.On Monday the 18th of February, Elise and I will post two comic strips with blank dialogue bubbles.
2.Drop in on one of our blogs and copy and paste the two comic strips into your post.
3.Write the dialogue off to the side.
4.Post your entry on Wednesday the 20th of February and then check out some of the other entries.
5.Elise and I will then pick some extra creative entries who will win prizes that will include books and other stuff.
6.Winners will be announced on Friday the 22nd of February.
That's it! So grab the button, sign up at the bottom, and thanks for celebrating with us.
"You know E, that's almost too easy."
"Hummm, I think you're right, M. That is too easy. What do you suggest?"
"How about I come up with a few random bonus words that the participants should try to use in the dialogue?
Did you guys catch that? Great, but just in case, I've put together an example of what we're talking about.
Panel 1: "Hi guys! We're so happy you're going to celebrate our blog birthday with us! It's going to be fun so sign up below on the linky list and get excited!"
Panel 2: "That's right E, this is going to be fun and all you guys have to do is copy the comic strip that we'll reveal on the 18th of February into your post. Then write your dialogue above or on the side of the comic strip."
Panel 3: "Oh, and don't forget to write down the panel number above your dialogue."
Panel 4: "And one more thing, don’t forget about the bonus words for you guys to add into your dialogue for a little extra challenge and kiss up points!" 🙂
So below is Mr. Linky, just waiting for you to sign up. Go ahead… don't be afraid… you know you want to…
