The Never-ending Scene Blogfest (or cliffhanger–whatever)

October 25-26 
Well, it’s finally here, my first Blogfest. I’m so happy you all decided to participate and I can’t wait to read all the wonderful entries! 
So, here’s how it works . . .
On your blog site, write a new scene or post a scene from your current project that is no more than 500 words, which has a rocking cliffhanger (pun intended). It can be any genre. Just leave us hanging, craving more, and cursing your name for making us want to turn a page that isn’t there. And make sure you link back to this blog post so that visitors to your blog can read the other participants’ entries. Easy peasy, right? Right.
Have your entries posted by 8am EST on October 25. The fest will be for two days so that everyone has time to read the entries. About that, please try to visit and comment on as many blogs as you can. The more you do, the better the response will be on your entry. I will post the top six on Wednesday, October 27. 
About the judges . . . 
Myself, which I hope you all already know and please follow me cause I’ll follow you back.
Joannine, a fellow writer and my best friend since I was thirteen.
Connie, my walking buddy and former university publications editor.
The judges will stop by each participants’ site, read the entry, and when we’re done, pick the top six, and then have you all vote for the top three on the 27th. I won’t be commenting on your entries, but you’ll know we’ve stopped by and judged it. : )

Here’s the wicked awesome prizes from C.A. Marshall, Freelance Editor, Author, and Literary Agent Intern Extraordinaire:
CA Marshall’s Website 

1st Place: A 10 page manuscript critique AND a synopsis critique OR $50 towards manuscript edits,which average about $500. 
Two runner ups will get: Either a 10 page manuscript OR a synopsis critique OR $25 towards manuscript edits, which average about $500.

Here are the participants. Please visit as many as you can to support your fellow writers!
