Its a contest… with words

The lovely folk at YA Lit Chat are having a writing contest. There are all kinds of fancy rules and such at that link, so if you have any questions feel free to ask me and I will try to get an answer for you. The cool part however is what you get if you win the contest. A story in an as yet untitled anthology with the biggest names in YA Literature at the moment! Here are the contributors:

Cyn Balog
Nina Berry

Leah Cypess
Shannon Delany
Debra Driza
Leigh Fallon
Angie Frazier
Heidi R. Kling
Nancy Holder
Suzanne Lazear
Karen Mahoney

KM Walton
Suzanne Young
Michelle Zink
Jessie Harrell

Why yes, that is my name you see there! The theme is Mother Goose done darkly. I chose Ring Around the Rosy a really dark version and am pairing it with the Morrigan legend.

I hope you are all as excited as I am and will consider entering the writing contest!

A ring, a ring o’roses,
A pocket full of posies,
Ash-a! Ash-a!
All stand still.
The King has sent his daughter
To fetch a pail of water,
Ash-a! Ash-a! All bow down.
The bird above the steeple
Sits high above the people,
Ash-a! Ash-a! All kneel down.
The wedding bells are ringing,
And boys and girls are singing,
Ash-a! Ash-a! All fall down

    Good luck! I’m not a writer so I wouldn’t get into any of this!
