Silent Communication Contest

Author: Anastasia V. Pergakis // Category:

Yes, my wonderful 20 followers! Since you all have been following me for a while now, I thought to have a little contest.

In my novel, I am working with two characters that are both quiet types of people. Because of that, I am having to put more of their "dialogue" into "expressions". With that in mind, I want to see how YOU guys would come up with a scene with the same idea! I will post mine in a post tomorrow - it's rather long so, I'll put it in it's own post.

Contest Rules
1. The scene must have at least two characters in it.
2. The scene must convey a full conversation between the characters using facial expressions, mannerisms, and body language. (Characters using sign language, writing, or telepathy do NOT count.)
3. Keep your actual dialogue to a minimum (about 4 quotes of dialogue every 500 words).
4. Post the scene in your blog then link it in a comment here, so I can read it.

Deadline: Friday, March 19, 2010. (I'll start reading on Saturday!)

Prize: 2 interviews - one about you and one about your recent novel/story AND a review of your novel/story (done by me and posted in this blog).

I can't wait to read what you guys come up with! I'll be posting my scene tomorrow, so read that if you need a little help or hint to what I'm talking about. Have fun!

--->I still haven't heard from Mia about her win for the Deleted Scenes Week Contest I had a few weeks back. Send me an email Mia with your novel attached so that I can review it for you!

This seems fun. I, myself, am the silent type. If I don't know what to say then I'd rather say nothing at all. However, my characters are not. I am a big dialogue writer, so this will be a challenge. *ponders*

Sounds cool. Is the a word limit or minamum?

No there is not a word count limit or anything like that. Just post up the scene in your blog and link it here. I'm trying to figure out the blogfest widget sign up things I've seen around so hopefully next time, it'll be easier to submit stuff!
