TESTING 1, 2, 3: Fall Writing Frenzy Practice Submissions

Hey Kidlit Friends and MathIsEverywhere Blog Readers,

I’m trying to figure out the best way to have you submit your wonderful, magical, inspiring, gruesome, surprising entries.

If you’re up for some experimentation, please test this out with me.


Instead of EVERYONE putting their story in the comments, let’s take a cool cue from Susanna Hill herself. Try posting your test story in your own blog, then link it here OR link to one of your favorite blog posts right now.

Again, please DO NOT post your actual entry for next week; instead, write some gibberish or something empowering! OR share your favorite joke, the cornier the better! Think Laffy Taffy wrappers, those are MY FAVE! OR link to your favorite blog post right now.

Below is a Google Form try submitting here: (remember not your real entry, this is just a test)

Here’s the results once you hit submit:

If you don’t have a blog on which to add your submission, place it in the comments below indicate that you did within the google form.

If you’re testing this out with me, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below. ie. Do you like the google form? Is it easy to use? Can you click to see other entries? Do you have any suggestions or questions?

THANKS so much! I can’t wait for all your entries. You have all been so amazing at sharing, keep it up. I LOVE seeing all the tweets and retweets about our Fall Writing Frenzy!

  1. I just DM’d you via Twitter…but forgot it was a google doc you were going to have people entering their links on. For me, the only issue with not having people post the actual entry in the comments is that you will have to visit each of those blogs in order to read (and reread if the story is a contender) the manuscript…and if you have a lot of entries (which you will), that becomes very time consuming. However, I don’t know that there is any easy way to structure this type of contest…my #50PreciousWords is only 50 word stories…and even that gets somewhat unwieldy as more and more people add their entries to the comment section…and comments on the entries. 🙂 But no matter what…these contests/challenges are the lifeblood of the kidlit community…they encourage and inspire us to write and revise and submit…which is the magic formula, right? 🙂 Hugs to you, Kaitlyn…it’s going to be great, no matter how you work it out.

  2. The google form is easy to use and probably helps keep info in order.

    I don’t have a blog so anything I write will have to be in the comments section.

    1. Oh, yay! Glad it was easy to use and feel free to use this as a reason to create a blog 😉 lol. It’s definitely not necessary, but Susanna Hill’s contests are what helped push me to get mine going, as well as my amazing critique partner, Katie Walsh, who has a very cool blog!
