Focus Friday #3 / Giveaway Winner Announced!

Hey Guys,

I apologize for the sparseness of my posts these days, but life has been throwing me for a loop, as it tends to do. First and foremost, I’m preparing to start a brand new job after 4+ years at the same place. Change is always a little scary, but exciting too, and it seems 2017 is going to be my year of change.

Bring it on.

That being said, I did not forget about the Writer’s Gift Basket Giveaway! The details of the contest were posted here: https://thedailyrejectionblog.com/2017/01/07/new-year-giveaway/

I have to say that I received a lot of really good entries, and that I wish I could give something to everyone. But unfortunately there can only be one winner, and there was one prompt in particular that instantly got me excited to get writing.

The winner is Ellie P, owner of http://crossedeyesanddottedtees.wordpress.com
Her prompt is as follows:

When the angel rang Claret's doorbell, she was immediately annoyed. He's early, Claret thought.

Congratulations, Ellie P! And thank you once again to all my readers, followers, re-bloggers, and contest entrants. You are all very much appreciated, and I look forward to sharing more with you in the future.

My take on her prompt is below the cut (Part One of Two)

New Year Giveaway

Hey Guys!

Just want to let you know that I appreciate each and every one of my readers. To show you just how much, I’d like to share something with you on this Share it Saturday…. A giveaway! What we have here is a pretty sweet writer’s gift basket that was assembled thanks to ample holiday generosity.

The $100 value gift basket includes a “Writer’s Block” notebook, a “Writer Emergency” card pack, an “I write, what’s your superpower?” mug, and a USB color-changing “book” light (it’s made of wood and opens and closes like a real book).

Since my posts have been slightly more sparse thanks to a hectic start to the new year, I’m looking to my readers for inspiration. So, to win the gift basket, the rules are simple:

  1. Be a follower of The Daily Rejection.
  2. Send me a 1-2 sentence story prompt by Friday, January 20th. Anything at all that you’d like to see me write a short story about. ONLY IDEAS THAT YOU DON’T MIND PARTING WITH. (This is just meant to be a fun little exercise). You can use my contact form at https://thedailyrejectionblog.com/contact/

I’ll post my interpretation of the prompt by the following Focus Friday, January 27th, and announce the winner. Not at all a requirement, but I would greatly appreciate it if you would help spread the word.

Good luck, and happy prompting!

JB
