10 Followers!

Wooohoooo!!  *Dances*
I have ten followers!!  I know that may not sound like a lot to some of you, but, yeah,  it's awesome to me!
Update: 11 followers AND this is my 50th post!!!  :D
I don't know what I'll do for accomplishing this goal, though, because I haven't done anything like this before! xD  Hmmm....ah ha!  I have a small contest for you!

Short Story Contest

Rules:
1. Fill in all the blanks!  (They look like ____ if you didn't know ;) )
2. Continue the short story! (It doesn't have to be long and you can make it a cliffhanger, if you want)
3. (VERY IMPORTANT)  Make it family friendly (No curse words or inappropriate stuff, etc)  If I find it offensive I will not allow it in the contest!
3.  Post the link to it on this post!
4. ANYONE can enter
5. (Of course) HAVE FUN!

I will choose the winner based on:
Creativity
Uniqueness
How  Emotional it is*
A Creative Title
And
 It has to Make Sense
*Like the reader actually feels what the character is/was feeling. (Anger, joy, gloomy,depressed, shock.  You get the point :P )

Since this is not a big contest, I will not make you have to put a "Contest Button" on you blog, but you can advertise on your own if you want! :P

There will be 1 or 2 winner(s) (It depends how many entrants there are)
I will make an award button for you to put on your blog and also make an award post showing your entry!
 I will have a link to all the entrant's contest post in the award post!

You have 3 weeks to finish! (From July 30th  till August 20th @ 4:00 p.m. EST.)  I will post the Award post as soon as I can after the contest!

Here is the start!

    "I'll race you!"  ____ challenged, already riding ahead on his/her horse.
    "You didn't even say 'go'!"  I laughed, chasing after him/her on ____, my flea bitten gray Arabian horse.  I assumed we were racing to the ____ because that was the direction we were headed.  I changed from a canter to a full on gallop, speeding ahead of ____ and his/her black tobiano Paint horse, ____.  I might be ____, but I'm very competitive.  
    I glanced back and saw that  ___'s eyes were wide open with an expression of shock.  I smirked back cockily because he/she was probably surprised that I had caught up so fast.  Then, I turned back around and realized it wasn't me ____ was shocked at.  I ____ in horror as I took in the whole picture.


I can't wait to read your stories! :D

  3. Congrats!! :D

    "I'll race you!" Matthew challenged, already riding ahead on his horse.
    "You didn't even say 'go'!" I laughed, chasing after him side saddle on Darcy, my flea bitten gray Arabian horse. I assumed we were racing to the Willow Trees because that was the direction we were headed. I changed from a canter to a full on gallop, speeding ahead of Matthew and his black tobiano Paint horse, Bill. I might be a girl , but I'm very competitive.
    I glanced back and saw that Matthew's eyes were wide open with an expression of shock. I smirked back cockily because he was probably surprised that I had caught up so fast. Then, I turned back around and realized it wasn't me Matthew was shocked at. I Gasped horror as I took in the whole picture.

    My draft ^ :D
