A Game of Secrets

So if you came here expecting today's Creative Writing prompt, then sorry. But not sorry. Because it's not here, but we've got something BETTER to tell you about. And it's still creative and writerly. EXCEPT BETTER.

Oh yes.

A while back, the lovely Gabrielle Carolina graciously invited us to do a series of guest posts on her fab blog, The Mod Podge Bookshelf--an offer which we were of course thrilled to take her up on. So for the past month or so, we've been working hard behind-the-scenes here to put together what we think is going to be an awesome event that we hope YOU are going to participate in. Here are the basics.

The six of us-- Andrea, Stefanie, Heather, Kelsey, Leah, and YOU-- are going to be writing a story together. The story will be unfolding from multiple povs (one post for each of us, who have created a character specifically for this event). Each person's character will tell their part of the story on the following days, over on Mod Podge:

Monday 3/11: Stefanie
Wednesday 3/13: Andrea
Friday 3/15: Leah
Monday 3/18: Kelsey
Wednesday 3/20: Heather
Friday 3/22: YOU will be completing the story

You'll have a chance to get to know our characters over the next week and during the event, and then it will be up to you to decide how their story ends. Which means you'll have to decide which of said characters is telling the truth, which of them are telling lies, and which ones are keeping some dangerous--possibly deadly-- secrets to themselves.

So what is their story about, you ask? Well, that's a secret too, of course. Are you sensing a theme here? ;) Some of these secrets--details about the events leading up to our story, that is-- will be revealed in bits and pieces throughout the week here on the blog, on our individual blogs, and through our twitter account.

And why should you participate in our event? Well because A.) it's going to be a crazy amount of fun B.) there's going to be trash-talking of each other's characters involved and C.) OH YEAH, PRIZES. As in, a huge, fun, awesome secret prize pack for the person who writes the most compelling, creative, awesome ending to this story (as judged by us). Excited yet? GOOD.

And we're just getting started :) Watch this space for more updates, which will be coming soon! For now, if you have any questions, leave them in the comments!
