Writting Contest!

Hello :)
Over the past few months I've seen a lot of bloggers do writing contests and I thought it would be fun to do one as well!  The rules are:
1. Your entry must be appropriate (think PG)
2. Please write a short story or a poem (any genre)
3. Remember to write a story/poem, not an entire novel!
4. Email your entry to me at macmastergirls@yahoo.com
5. You must have your parents permission to enter as I will need your address if you win
6. I will post all the entries on my blog when the contest is over
7. I will announce the winner October 12th :) So make sure to check back to see if you won! IMPORTANT:  I HAVE DECIDED TO EXTEND THE DEADLINE TO OCTOBER 22ND)
8. This writing contest is not international.  Sorry : (

Here's the button for my writing contest!  You can put it on your blog if you want :)

    1. Hmmm...I hadn't really thought about that! This one probably won't be (sorry!) only because shipping the prize would be a bit too expensive for me :( I'm so sorry Mahnoor! ♥

  4. I so want to do this!! Hopefully I can find some writing inspiration. I'm actually writing a short story for school. It's sorta long but it's not, well extremely long. ;) I think it's like 5 pages on Word when it's double spaced. :) Will I be able to enter that in?

    1. Yay! Sure! You can enter it if you'd like :) But I probably won't post the entire thing on my post where I announce the winner and post all the entries...is that alright with you? But yes you can definitely enter it!

  5. I just wrote a story, so I will probably enter! :) I can't wait! :) I love story contests. Can we enter more that one story, and a story that we have already entered in another contest but didn't win? Thanks!
