Blogfest of Death!

Oh yes! You read correctly.

This is a Blogfest of Death
Okay I sooo can't pull that off like our illustrious hostess!
In any event, here's what she's proposing to you...

The Task:
Kill someone.(a fictional someone, pretty please)

Sound easy? Good for you (by the way you're a little frightening) but we don't judge here.
Many writers, myself included have difficulty killing off their characters. At least I did until I started my most recent WIP. So this Blogfest was right up my alley.

So you need to ask yourself. Do I have some sort of monster, creature or villain in my story that just has to go at some point? Well here's your chance to show the world. Or at least your wonderful blogging community! Maybe one of your central characters that has worn out his/her welcome in the story. Go for it! I can't wait to see what everyone submits!

Tessa says and I quote..."Whatever you want to write about is ok, only someone has to die. Resurrections are acceptable, as are magic-induced returns to life, but I don't want to see any of what the French call 'le petit mort', because my dears, nobody dies there (and yes, I've given this a lot of thought). Be as funny or as serious as you like, make us laugh, make us cry, only please no scenes that are nothing but blood and gore. I'm looking for at least some story or character development, here!"

Ready to join? Here's what you do:

*You have to follow Tessa's Blog (feel free to follow mine as well! I love visitors!)

*Sign up on the link list by July 18th at the latest

*Advertise this blogfest on your blog with either the banner or the button she provides.

*Write your death scene- please keep it under 1000 words (no word police, just courtesy)

*Post it on the site you've linked to on July 18th

*Link back to Tessa's site so people can read the other entries, too.

*Read other people's posts and leave comments and HAVE FUN!!

The Prize:
She'll be choosing a winner from the entries in a suitably random way; said winner will receive a $ 10 voucher. Definite entry bonus if you advertise her 'fest!!!

Gosh, I don't have any character deaths. I wonder if I could write one just for this. Hmm...something to think about.

I think that's what some people are doing. Should be interesting to see how it all turns out!
