Write a description in one sentence and win a free Content Edit of your novel’s first chapter


Describe a guy standing on a thin layer of snow in his bare feet, shivering, bouncing on the balls of his feet as if the snow were hot coals, before he runs back inside his house.  Need one short, upbeat sentence that shows, not tells…..

By participating in this contest, you agree to let me use your sentence in my novel if you are chosen as the winner.

I’ll continue to take suggestions through May 27 and will announce the winner on May 28.  Thanks to all of the participants and good luck!
