Nevetsize a Moment of Your Life!

All---

I know the one thing that crosses your minds whenever you read any of my work is, "Huh. I wonder what my life would have been like if I'd been a character in something written by Nevets."

Well, pretty soon you'll get your chance to find out!

Next week, I'll put up an official contest post with the rules and stipulations. The winner or winners of that contest will get to tell me (in as much or as little detail as they like) about an episode of their life that I will then Nevetsize as a flash or short story. My version will be posted here and also sent to the winner or winners as an autographed, collectible copy.

"Winners you say?" Possibly! The specifics will wait for next week, but there will be one winner for every full twenty-five blog followers. Right now that means, one. If by the time the contest is ended I have 50+ followers, it will be two. 75+ would mean three. And so on.

There will be x winners where n = number of followers and x = n / 25.

No rounding. Rounding is for stats class only.

.Nevets.

  1. p.s. I'll post some more examples next week, but if you're curious what this might be like, buy Genre Wars or check out my Flashy Fiction contributions like this, this, or especially this.

  3. Thanks, Bru. To answer the question implied in your first, fuller (but oops) comment, I wouldn't worry about it. If you win the contest, I'll throw myself into it and just do my best to put myself in your shoes!

    And, regarding the oops, I've done that before too. lol
