I had my nieces choose the winners of the #3arcs contest. Since I knew some of the contestants (either personally or through the interwebz), I didn't want my biases to influence any decisions.
Here are their favorite tweets using the words SLIDE, GLIMMER and EVER.
1. from @ashliepants
SLIDE secrets to ears that can't EVER tell, just because the moon GLIMMERS doesn't mean all is well...
2. from @LisaAldin
As I SLIDE my blood-crusted hands from the cuffs, a GLIMMER of light appears under the door, and I wonder if this game will EVER end.
3. from @woven_
As she let the coin SLIDE from her palm into the GLIMMERing fountain, she knew she wanted this with to come true more than EVER.
I think my nieces did a fantastic job picking the winners. You should've seen them last night poring over the entries. They took their task very seriously.
WINNERS: Please email me your mailing addresses! brodiashton at gmail dot com
You will receive a 3-ARC prize pack of SLIDE, GLIMMER and EVERNEATH!
It's hard to imagine a time when anyone would utter those sentences, so I came up with my own scenarios.
A man stands by a pond that reflects the moonlight, thinking the toil of his life. Two years ago, a witch cast a spell upon the man, cursing him to speak only in cryptic rhymes.
A beautiful woman approaches. She has been searching for the man her entire life. "Please, tell me what I need to do to break the curse. Please!"
The man replies, "SLIDE secrets to ears that can't EVER tell, just because the moon GLIMMERS doesn't mean all is well..."
The woman grunts in frustration.
I'll let you come up with scenarios for the other two. Please feel free to share!
So... how's everyone doing? I'm armpit deep in revisions, with only my blog readers to tell me whether it's sunny or snowy outside. So tell me.
