What Makes You Tick?

In years of writing and the creation of characters, I have learned that every character I create is me. Just as Gustave Flaubert said, "Madame Bovary c'est moi," so could I say Geoff Ryker is me.

But let's take it a step further. Fictionalize yourself. Find a poem or a short story or something that moves you, and insert a fictional version of yourself. Show us how it changes the dynamics of the story or poem. What unique qualities or features are you bringing to the situation? What things about you will alter the outcome? Or is the outcome even altered?

This month's prize is a $10 Amazon gift certificate, to be e-mailed to the winner of the drawing. You'll get one entry to the drawing for each item you submit. So get writing!!

This entry will remain on top throughout the month of March. If you want to know who won February's prize, scroll down.

Okay, fine, if nobody wants to win a $10 Amazon gift certificate, fine, I'll just give it to myself.


But it's not that difficult a writing assignment. It was actually kind of fun, to insert myself into a fairy tale, and I was really looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with.

So if you'll excuse me, I'll just go sit in a corner and eat worms. Bit fat juicy ones, long skinny slimy ones, and woolly ones, too, because apparently nobody likes me.

ok, ok, I'm still behind on everything I was supposed to do since I got back from vacation... I still feel like it's just barely March, but really March is half-way done!

Anyway, without further ado...

PLIMCO is the winner of the lovely journal. Did you read her post? It was really good. I truly enjoyed it. But that's not why she won. It was a totally random drawing. I liked all the S Project entries that I read. I did. You people are all such liars, I can't believe it. Good thing I'm so unbelievably honest.
