There's a reason they call me The Pancake

Okay, so no one actually calls me that and why would they? Maybe because I flatten people's faces with my fists! Um, no. Anyway...With a MUCH NEEDED vacation/hiatus starting next week, I'm going to do something a little different. First, a contest. Did I slip that in subtly enough? I'm going to link back to THIS POST, everyday this week, because I think every writer should read my word of caution BEFORE signing with an agent. For every 10 additional comments (from a follower) on THIS POST starting today, I'll choose 1 name at random to win your book of choice from the Book Depository. Contest is open internationally, and while spreading the word is optional, it's appreciated. It's really important THIS POST gets everyone's attention.

In addition, if I reach 100 comments, I will draw a winner for one of these two shirts:
Second, for the next 5 business days (how professional), I want YOU to tell ME what to write about. It's mainly because I'm already in vacay mode but can't leave you hanging. So go ahead. I'll blog about anything YOU want. Catnip? Beach volleyball? Facial hair? Give me your best (or worst). Today through next Monday, I'll pick (again, at random) 5 posts to give a Candyland account of your subject, while linking to THIS POST at the bottom of each one. Sounds good? Or are you confused? Did you take your Meds today? Uh-huh...

Re-cap: Send peoples to THIS POST. Comment yourself. Well, not on yourself, but comment also. Winners will be chosen for every 10 new comments when I return from my GETTHEHELLOUTOFDODGECATION (I don't actually live in Dodge). It's like spreading an STD. Do it and pass it on. On top of all that, tell me here, on this post, what you want me to talk about for five days. This is as easy as your Aunt Helga. Either that or I'm severely dehydrated. Could be both.

Go for it, friends. I'm waiting.


Candyland. OUT.

They used to call me "pancake," too, until I hit puberty.

Have fun on vacay! I think you should blog about guys (not girls) who play beach volleyball. With pics. ;)

Okay, Linda's comment just made me laugh my ars off!! High-five to her!

Tell me my pretty - what was Candyland like in junior high?? Boys? Friends? Were you a detention hall junkie or a conformist? :)

I want you to write a sonnet to a plastic cup.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I like Matthew's suggestion!

Nicole Zoltack said...

lol I like everyone else's suggestions so far.

Talli Roland said...

Um... sweaty balls?

For anyone else, I'm sure it would be a challenge but I trust you can *ahem* handle it. :)

Heather said...

LOL! You crack me up. Thank you for that. I would love to hear about what you're doing on vacation.

One of my friends told me that you have to have two kids because the first kid is like the first pancake. You usually mess up a little on the first one, so you have to make another one to get it right...terrible isn't it? That's what I thought about with this post...that is all.

I loved Matthew's suggestion until I read Talli's! Have fun! And yes - write about the vacay. I'm sure it will give you tons to write about.

Take time to assess your own hearing problems – Pay attention to the sounds around you for a few days. Write down words or sounds that you have problems hearing. This will help you determine what exactly you are having problems hearing so you can let your doctor know about this.
