December's Write-Away Contest

Write-Away Contest PrizeThis is the twelfth edition of the Write-Away Contest and it's been fun--I've met new blogs and enjoyed a good part of the creative breadth the blogosphere has to offer. This month's topic is "My Favorite Day." This could be your favorite day of the year, favorite day of your life, favorite day of the week, whatever. Just write about it and help us feel the love so we can share your excitement.

If you'd like to participate here are the rules, and please note the part about linking back to the contest here at Scribbit, the last couple months entrants have been forgetful about doing this but please remember:

1. Write a post or find one in your archives on the topic, "My Favorite Day" and email your post's permalink to me at: scribbit at gmail.com any time through Friday December 21st. If you fail to meet the December 21st deadline I will still happily publish the link to your post and include it in the list of entries but it will not be judged. I reserve the right to reject submissions if they fail to meet the topic or if they contain objectionable content.

I always respond to each submission once I have received it, just to let you know I've got it but I've had terrible trouble lately with gmail throwing legitimate mail into my spam box. I'm sifting through it daily (and let me tell you how pleasant that is) to make sure I don't miss anything, but just to be sure please look for my responding email to know that I have received your entry.

2. Publish a link to the contest page here at Scribbit in either your entry post or in a separate post.

3. Check back here on Tuesday December 25th (yes, I know that's Christmas but it'll make it easy on me this way) when I will post a complete list of the entries along with the Write-Away Winner and any honorable mentions our judge sees fit to award.

Our guest judge this month is Kailani from An Island Life who blogs from the beautiful land of Hawaii. Sigh. It's my favorite place on earth and I think my favorite day may be one of the many I've spent there.

The prize you're writing for is a set of Alaskan Christmas tree ornaments in green, white and brown leather--the cutest little mittens and boots your tree has ever seen.

But besides this the winner and all runners-up or honorable mentions (I leave that up to the judge to award them) will also get to take home this attractive Write-Away Winner button which he or she may display in their sidebar if they wish.

Write-Away Contest WinnerGood luck, I look forward to reading your entries.
