Time Flies When You're Having Fun?

This is exactly my 100th post!!!!! Whoa!! 
I cannot believe it. It just seemed like yesterday that I did a "Hello" post introducing myself.
And I cannot believe I have 71 awesome followers!!! Thank you guys!!!

So, I don't know if you have looked at the poll on the sidebar or not, but a Writing Challenge was voted on the most!! I'm so excited!! Each of you can write a paragraph. Not a full story, just a little snippet from it. I will be the judge!

The topic is "The Perspective of Animals!" How fun right? Here's a little paragraph to show you what I mean.

~ It all started one sunny morning, when the bell on the door of Hopson's Pet Shop jingled loudly. 

"Well, hello there," Mr. Hopson said to the lady and her little daughter who had just walked in. 

"My daughter would like a pet," the woman replied. 

"What kind? We have dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, hamsters, and more." I grunted. I was always the 'more'. Turtles never got mentioned in the welcome phrase. 

"I don't want any of those, mommy!" The little girl exclaimed. "I want something special!" I jumped up. I was special! 

"Well..." Mr. Hopson rubbed his chin. "There's always the mouse." I laughed to myself. Chico? The Spanish dancing mouse? He'd wake you up in the middle of the night singing La Cucaracha. 

"No." The little girl whirled around, flinging her brown pig-tails. "I want the thing with the snake head and the rock on it's back." I just kinda stared. That was the best description of a turtle I had ever heard. ~

There! That's just a little thing I made up. Y'all can do so much better! I am looking forward to seeing the entries!! 

Here's the rules:

1. The paragraph MUST be written by you, and you alone.
2. Your paragraph must be in the perspective of an animal.  (Like the animal is speaking.)
3. The deadline is May 23. 
4. You must put your paragraph in a blog post, and send me the link (of the post). 
5. You must put the button linking back to my blog on your sidebar until the contest is over.

I think that's it!! 

Ready, Set, Write!!!!

Can it be more then a paragraph?


Kathryn said...

Well, I would prefer it to be only the length of a paragraph, so they don't get too long. But, they are different size paragraphs, no? :)
Also keep in mind this doesn't have to go anywhere. It can just be a teeny tiny part of a story, that makes no sense. I'm looking for how well it is written!

Sierra said...

Cool! Do we have a word limit? That is a bit easier for more than "a paragraph" if you don't mind anyway. Cool contest! I will try to do it Saturday? Sierra

I can't wait Kathy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kathryn said...

Hm, I'm not really sure. You see, words go so fast!! I can do like 50 in a few sentences! Let's aim at around 500 (that could be a ton, or hardly any, LOL) and if you need more, add. If that's like way to many, don't do that many! LOOOL

Sierra said...

Yes they can! Okay! cause I know 100 is like a short paragraph kinda. I might aim for about 300-400 size. Thanks! Sierra

Hi Kathy! What do I do because I have a private blog so I can't exactly send you the link? But I would REALLY, REALLY love to do this challange. I missed out on the last one, but this one is right up my alley - I'm a writer. I love your blog and everything you write about. I think we could be great friends, too.
