I’m not going to lie. When I first heard this week’s topic in Blogger Idol, I was not a happy camper. I don’t do scary anything. I literally plug my ears or mute the TV if a commercial for an intense movie or show is on. Seriously. So, I wasn’t at all excited about the challenge. Here it is:
First, look around you, and pick the three tangible items closest to you (no people, pets, or other living things).
Here’s the assignment: It’s the apocalypse. The only 3 items you have are the 3 you answered in the above instruction. You must include them all, and none in the same sentence as another. You must also weave in one real life event that has happened to you. In addition, you must also use at least two of these words somewhere in the post: rainbow, nemesis, throne, poop, orange juice.
Word limit: 850 words.
Seriously?? Apocalypse = end of the world, usually zombies, people going crazy to stay alive and away from those zombies. You know–totally NOT my cup of tea!!
It took me a little while, but once I got over the anxiety and sweaty palms, I got to writing. And once I started writing, I just couldn’t stop!! Well, I did … I stopped at exactly 850 words!
Much to my surprise, I enjoyed writing this post–zombies and all!!!
Now, with only four contestants remaining, votes mean everything to keep me in the competition. Since we’re just coming off of the break week for Thanksgiving, our contest coordinator (the lovely Heather) has decided to open voting early!!! So, polls are now open!!! You get 18 extra hours to vote!!
