Morning all. I hope your weekend was an excellent one.
A few weeks ago the lovely and talented Fantasia Lillith created a challenge: read the introductory tale she'd written, and then send in your own contribution of 200-400 words to continue the tale. Fantasia would then stitch the responses together with her own interstitial material to create one overarching tale.
This sounded like it would be fun, so I sent in my own contribution. It turns out that I was the first one to respond, and so my own mini-fantasy is the first one to appear in the finished story, which Fantasia has posted today.
Fantasia is now looking for votes from her Audience to decide the winner: whose story was the most well-crafted? If you have a moment and if you'd like to help me out, go read the finished tale, "Le Manoir" over at Fantasia's site and then vote for the contribution you like the most.
(Edited to add: Fantasia has also reminded me that I get one point for every vote and another point for every comment on the post about my contribution. So get voting and get commenting, both!) :)
What else? Oh yes. I forgot to mention that for the winner, Fantasia has offered to "personally donate to [the winner's] charity of choice the $ amount equal to the highest number of hits for a single day over the two week period the challenge will be live on [the] site. This could be a substantial donation!"
As I enjoy supporting the arts, if I'm the winner my donation will go to the Ballet Company of the major city in which I reside. No, I'm not telling you which one it is. :)
This was an enjoyable challenge and I had fun contributing. Thanks, Fantasia!
