So there’s this meme out there… I do a LOT of memes. When I dive into a project, I leap in feet first and swim fast down to the deep end. And ever since last October when the meme bug bit me, I’ve been throwing myself after writing prompts and new communities. Anyway, this summer, I finally caught up with the folks at yeah write
. They only allow fifty people into their competitive grid, and sometimes, they offer real prizes. But oh yeah, that grid fills fast. Until this summer, I never got my posts written in time to participate. And then, I think I got in largely because they started moderating submissions and imposed a word limit. I’m still kind of slow on my weekly submissions and don’t always make it that far. They are planning to keep up the moderation thing, but they are raising the word limit from 500 to 1000. And I should note for anybody interested in participating that if your entry gets bounced because it doesn’t meet their criteria, they are totally cool if you revise and resubmit. The woman moderating the queue (Flood G
) is as awesome as she is exacting.
Then, something ineffably cool happened.
The meme owner needed to take a break, and she invited members of the community to guest edit and judge. And I got ‘in’! Not just ‘in’, I got to compile the judge’s choices and write the ‘winners’ post. Yee-HAW! SO. Today, I have a guest post up on yeah write, and I’d love it if you went to see. I’d love it even more if you joined up with this fabulous group of writers in a future week!
