Hello hapless victims, er I mean readers.
I have a proposition for you, er I mean contest. Depending how this goes, maybe we’ll do this as a regular monthly feature.
The contest is simple:
- Coin a new word, or use an existing word in a new way. Provide a definition for your word and take it for a test drive. Use it in a sentence (at least)–but you don’t have to let that constrain you. You could write a short story with your word, build a book around it, or launch a million-dollar series from the ink of your fine, new word. (The latter choices are optional.)
- Post a link to your entry in the comments below. No writing license required—if you don’t have a blog, feel free to paste your entry into the comments of this thread. Deadline is March 22, 2013.
There’s a prize! Winner will receive a $10 gift card of their choice: Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Contestants will be judged on originality, suitability and creativity. I’ll announce the winner on March 23rd.
I’ll provide a sample entry in the comments below.
