The best gifts are the ones you make yourself. That's why David Powers King, Leigh Covington, and I wish to invite you togive the gift of your writing. And we've got prizes!

Here's the deal:

Write a piece of flash fiction, poem, or song (300 words or less) for someone you know (real or imaginary).
 Post it on your blog anytime between now and when the linky closes,then give it to that someone before the new year.

Give it in the form of anemail, printed on fancy stationary, or laser-etched onto a solid gold plate.Your choice. And it can be any genre.

Every eligible entry will qualify for achance to win a special gift. The Linky will close at 12:00 AM, Friday the16th. David, Leigh, and I will then read, debate, and decide on five winners forthe following:

1st: An Amazon Gift Card for $15
2nd: "Champaginer Challenges 2011" and "TotallyClichéd" E-books
3rd: A 5-page critique from David Powers King
4th: A 5-page critique from J. A. Bennett

There is no point system, no popularity votes, and you do not have to followour blogs to participate.

We're givers. What can we say?

Sound good? Awesome! Sign up in the Linky below and get busy writing. Spreadthe word and feel free to post the linky on your blogs. We look forward to reading your holiday magic!

This is such a wonderful contest/blog hop. I need to write something first before signing up. I'm over my head right now, so I need ten minutes and some major inspiration so I can give this a shot. Thanks for such a great opportunity!
