Dual Post: Giveaway-and Nanowrimo! (CLOSED)

Nanowrimo: Hey guys! Nano is starting for me in two hours! I've gone back and forth on plot ideas like a jumping Asian cockroach! And I've decided....that I'll do two things. I will probably write a collection of short stories. But if this plot does work then I'll do this:An estranged cab man without a home runs into a small boy on the run from a man  who seeks to know  what  the secret to the fifth dimension is. 

 Yes that is original, as much as stories ever are :)




Good luck and WRIMO IT UP!

Whatever happened to the fourth dimension? I'd like to see you write that into the story too. Even if it just folds over onto itself. GL with the give aways. Oh and where did you pull the music from?

Writer's Characters said...

I have done all of the following for this contest!

I have followed your blog, posted about this contest on my blog (here's the link http://fromthemindofawriter.blogspot.com/) and I have commented on a couple of your different reviews (which by the way are amazing!).

By the way how's your nano novel coming?

Millard of Swiftstorm said...

Hey Writer's Characters!


So glad you enjoyed the reviews, and I'm also thankful that you followed. Thanks!!
I'm asking that people give the link where they commented, sorry!! I updated that section of the rules now to avoid confusion. My fault completely! :(

Nano! It's up to date, thanks for asking :) I've got to get my words done today though! :O

Are you doing Nano too?! And your Nano Novel?

Sincerely,

Millard

Writer's Characters said...

Noah Arsenault said...

This is awesome, but I have a few questions. First, when does the giveaway end? Second, did you get the rule outline from my blog? :P If so, no worries!

Millard of Swiftstorm said...

Haha! Two answers :D

1: I'm updating that today, I knew i neeed to fix that >_<

2. Yes! I'm sorry, I emailed you about it probably...a week ago before I even had this posted, as I didn't get a response I hoped it would be OK! Thanks for being understanding! :D

Noah Arsenault said...

Ok, thank you Millard! It's no issue at all!
