Campaigner Notice-Board (Friday, February 24th, 2012)

Hey guys, another week of my Fourth Campaign has now passed :)

The First Campaigner Challenge is going fabulously, and we've just hit the magic 200 entries!!! There's still time to enter, though only a few hours left until 11.59pm Friday, EDT, so get in quick! "Like" voting will be open for another week for those making their way through all the awesome entries. The judges are hard at work (thank you judges!) on judging your entries, and we're sorting out and allocating prizes as we speak.

Make sure you come back for the Second Campaigner Challenge on Monday, March 5th. I'm putting the finishing touches on the Challenge now, and it'll be much harder *grins* (though there'll be easier options too for those of you who wish to take them). Here's a clue:

Working on getting results for the semi-finals now.

Cynthia said...

I've been enjoying the stories I've read so far. And I have March 5th marked on my calendar as a reminder of the next challenge!

That picture added could lead me to a lot of inferences.

Writing about water?
Writing about cooking?
Writing about fruit?
Writing about explosions?
Writing about magic?

I'll have to wait and see, like everyone else, where this leads; I await the challenge!

Hello Rachael, I'm just part updating in the Writer's Platform Building for my first time, and fully appreciate the amount of work put into this, for my and everyone's sake. I also realise that you may well be far too busy to take up the 11 Questions tag meme doing the rounds on the platform, but if you ever feel it's time to sharein the fun, consider yourself tagged.

Find the questions at my post here - https://hunterswritings.wordpress.com/2012/02/25/tagged-and-tagging/#more-443

Stuart Nager said...

thanks for running this. I'm still making my way through. I should hit all by end of this weekend.

Water, explosive, magic....I'm intrigued by what the photo clue will bring us.

Rachel Morgan said...

Hmm... okay... so that looks like a splash of water in the shape of a pear! Which doesn't help me at all!

Thank you for the campaigner notice board :-)

Patricia Marques said...

Thank you for the roundup!
