First off, the Teens Can Write, Too blog chain (which is co-hosted by yours truly) is currently scheduling participants for the December chain. If you’re a teen or are in your early twenties and have a blog, automatically making you a writer, you should check out the chain and get involved! You can get more information and sign up here.
Secondly, John Hansen is hosting a contest over on his blog, The Incessant Droning of a Bored Writer, in celebration of his 50th follower (congrats, John!). This little contest has already collected its entries–six-sentence stories from his readers–and is now in the voting stage. There are some great stories to be picked over and voted on, and it’ll only take a few minutes, so why not head over and take a look here? (Psst…vote for mine. Except I can’t tell you which one is mine, as they’re all anonymous. Oh…just vote.)
