And the competition has begun! Get to reading those links below!
Note: You can add a paragraph on top of your 350 word entry as a lead in for the scene.
I previously blogged about our Kissing Scene Competition. Check that out if you need to.
But here are the basics:
There are two rounds. Round 1 is a blog-hop. If you don't have a blog, start one or borrow one.
From today until the end of Friday (1st), you sign up with the Mr. Linky below. Include your name and the contest round you're in (ex: Cupid Rnd #2) and the url to the blog you'll be posting your scene on.
Yes, you MUST participate in the Blind Speed Dating contest to participate in the Kissing Scene Competition. If you haven't submitted, but would like to, check out window 5.
Those who have already secured a spot in the BSD agent round can still play. PLEASE make a note at the top of your entry that you can only be selected for honorable mention.
On Monday (4th) post your kissing scene (350 words) to the blog for everyone to read. This kissing scene does NOT have to be from your contest entry's manuscript. Between Monday (4th) and Thursday (7th) click on the links below to read all of the entries. The Kissing Experts (judges) will also use this time to choose their favorites. They will each be given a group to read and out of that group, only one will be selected to go on to round 2.
Each of the Kissing Experts will be armed with these awards to give to any of their entries:
Sweetest kiss: Sugar Lips Award
Most embarrassing/funniest kiss: Color Me Red Award
Most intense/hottest kiss: Get A Room Award
Most romantic kiss: Swooning Award
Most lovable characters: Cutest Couple Award
*Best overall writing: Write In The Kisser Award* <-- This is our winning award!
The Kissing Experts must give out the winning award, but it is their choice if they want to give out the others.
But ALL OF YOU can give out these awards to your favorites too! Just make sure to only use each award once!
All awards will be given in the comments section of that entry's blog post.
The 10 entries that make it into Round 2 will be posted here on the CLC blog from 2/11-2/13. The Kissing Experts and myself will then each vote for our favorites and the 3 winners will be announced on Valentines' Day!! These three winners will automatically go into the agent round in the BSD contest, with updated versions of their contest entries!! Yippee!
