Well heck. I was all set to launch my contest idea. Then I went over to myspace to catch up on things there and saw that John Green was having a contest to give away a book too. And of course the lovely Lisayee had done her own photo caption contest earlier. But I caught John’s bulletin when he first posted it and thought wow, what a good idea, since all I did was ask you guys for suggestions for a contest but he is holding a CONTEST for the best contest idea. But like I said, it was early and no one had responded to him yet. So I came back over here to post the details about the contest idea I came up with for ME, which was a design the cover contest, and now I see over on myspace that someone made that suggestion to John so it will look like I am copying him. Grumble. Other than those that think I am copying the aforementioned Lisa Yee.
So I don’t know whether to go ahead or not (and I already contacted one potential judge though I have no response yet) and it’s hot (84 degrees in the house and rising) and I’m still getting over the cold and I’m just a wee bit grumpy at the moment.
Go ahead and pick whichever one you want. There is, after all, nothing new under the sun. And Lisa’s contest is now over. And not all the same people read all the same blogs. And I’m sure I can think of a bunch of other points, but I’m fuzzy-headed at the moment.
How about if I just say that Kelly said it okay?
(And yes, if Kelly jumped off a bridge, I just might follow her?)
Deinitely go ahead with it. You’re you. they’re them. Enough said.
Easy to say, I know. But if you searched hundreds of authors, you’d find similar contests amongst them because, well, we all have great minds and we all think alike. Right?
Very true. All these great minds floating around here there’s sure to be some spillover.
Do it anyway! 🙂 The more, the merrier.
Guess what I got in the mail today? THANK YOU!
Thanks! I hope you like it.
I say go for the one that best captures your imagination and interest. You’ll put your own creative spin on it, anyway.
Thanks. It should be posted tonight or tomorrow.
I still think it’s a good idea!
And I certainly don’t think you stole my idea. I hope you don’t think I stole your idea, either.
Good luck with it!
