Challenge Issued: Paper Canvas Tapestries Collaborations

Happy Valentines’ Week!

I thought I’d kick of today’s post with a love-themed video; Sand Art by the talented Ilana Yahav – this is part of the SandFantasy series titled “Love 2008”.  Take a deserved break and enjoy.

Wasn’t that just amazing?  I am always mesmerised with what she creates; hard work certainly pays eventually. 🙂  Speaking of hard work, I have some exciting news to share; yikici turns one years on 15th March 2012 (yes I know -how cool is that?); I did not realise how quickly the past year went by -it’s been super speedy.  So I have been thinking what I could do to celebrate it -then it hit me, since I LOVE collaborating (no pun intended), I thought it would be fitting to celebrate yikici’ paper anniversary with a collaborated challenge (you all game?  I hope so).

The Challenge

I want us to write a story together.  How?  Just like any other Flash Fiction Challenge; but with a slight twist (I can’t help myself); we will each write a paragraph (no more than 250 words per entry) to the on-going story (which will start below and continue in the comment section/linky list, I will create a page to collate all the entries.).  Once we finish this rather exciting online project, I hope to publish our collected works in an eBook -either market it for free or put it on sale for a worthy cause, I usually choose children charities; but we can decide the final outcome all together once the project is completed.

What do you say?  Are you in?  Alrighty. 😀 Here’s the 3 (+1, just because an anniversary is coming up) images I have chosen for this challenge; I hope it gets your creative juices going; be inspired by one or more -the choice is yours.

  • Your entry must be 250 words (no more).
  • Any genre goes (providing it’s not explicit; we at yikici have a PG rating to observe).

  • Duration: I’ll keep this open for three months and check-in each month to see how we are fairing.
  • Prizes?  A HUGE thank you for participating & also hopefully publishing that eBook for exposure of your good work -it couldn’t get better than that right? 😀


If you want to help me organise this project or just want to hop-on-board to oversee if all is going along to plan, then please give me a shout in the comments below, contact me via Twitter @ozlemyikici or email me.  Any questions?  Contact me. 🙂

I’ll be back on Sunday with a special Savvy Salutations’ on little moi -I’ve been tagged by two campaigners, so I thought Savvy Sunday’s would be appropriate. 😉 There will also be a ROW80 update and new goals as well as the new craze we are finding out; curious?  Pop by on Sunday and see what treats are in the bag for you. 😀
