A Collection of Short Stories (Part 2?)
As some of you know, I published a book back in April and now I'm considering a part 2, where I do more short stories and publish them. What do you guys think? Are there any stories from the first that you would love to see a "sequel" to? Are there any ideas you would like to see me write and turn into a story? All ideas used will be acknowledged and the person who gave them to me will be given credit.
I've seen a few challenges where you have to create an ad... So here we go: Create an ad for my book. Make it to where YOU want to buy it. If you need some info, I'll be providing a post on my page with info on it. You can include my Facebook and blog in the ad too. The winner will be decided by the most likes and the prize is, you get to know you had the most compelling ad and helped a struggling author! Lol
I did this a while back but I'm trying again... This time, instead of a live video on my Facebook, I'll answer them in posts on my Facebook page. Ask me anything about myself (as long as it's PG) or about my book or promotion tactics. You can find the link to my Facebook somewhere on my Profile or go to my blog and click the contact tab.

Adults of Prose! Give me the best financial advice you have! Please? I'm gonna be trying to buy/build a house soon with my boyfriend... But there's several obstacles. One of which is finances. We're both in school so we can't exactly work a lot... and we're trying to avoid loans. So if you do not mind, give us advice on how to boost our savings, please?

So NaNoWroMo has the dare machine. If you get stuck you can use it to help you out. However... sometimes you just can't find a good one. So, give me some dares to help over come writer's block. Keep it clean and PG-13 please and thank you!
Hey guys! I plan to do a Q&A on my Facebook page. I want you guys to ask me any question as long as it stays PG-13. I'll try to do a live video but I cannot guarantee anything. Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TeddyBear9979
Romanticize someone/something. It can be a fictional character, the love of your life, your dog, yourself, the wall. If you need a fictional character to romanticize but can't choose, you can do multiple or you can romanticize Aoife Enchantress, a character of my creation. You'd have to look at my pinterest board or my story Enchantress though. If the winner chooses, they get a free (signed) copy of my book once it comes out.
I saw the user Shadows do this. Give me a writing prompt (fictional) but keep it PG-13. No sexual content whatsoever and I am clarifying this AFTER a user entered one of Shadows contests and made a very uncomfortable one. I cannot guarantee that I'll write one for every entry but I will try. All my stories from these writing prompts will be featured in my book "A collection of Short Stories" If you want to read the book, you can pre-order the ebook version on Amazon for 3 dollars. You can go to my bio and get the link. I will do a post with the link too as well as further information about the contest.
Q & A for a self-published author
I have a friend who is a self published author, through KDP. I am thinking of interviewing her, if I do, what are some questions you would like me to ask? I will provide a post with links to her books and Amazon profile so anyone can go and read her books. Anyone who enters will be tagged (if/when) I post the Q&A for her.
Tell me about your dream wedding. The PERFECT wedding for you. Who would be the bride/groom? What would the colors be? What season? How many guests? How many grooms men and/or bridesmaids? What traditions would you use? Etc. Tell me allllllll about it. Whether you are a guy or girl or nonbinary. Tag me!
I wish they had told me; I wish I'd known then what I know now
Often in life, we find ourselves unprepared for certain things or thinking back to a time when we were unprepared and wishing someone had told us something important or that you had already known to do that instead of learning it weeks, months, even years down the road. What is something you have learned that you wish you'd known or been told earlier?

So when I get interested in learning a new language, the first thing I try to do is find cute nicknames for my boyfriend. Such as Delicae or Carissima. I have no idea how he feels about it but from what I know, he seems to like it. Soo the challenge is in a foreign language that you speak, give me some more nicknames for him with a pronunciation guide and the meaning. Please and thank you?

Find any song (or multiple songs) that you relate to. What is it, who sings it, what lines are most relatable for you, and if you're willing to say, why do you relate to this?

So we're gonna play a little game. I will give a sentence to start a story and you have to add onto the sentence or make another sentence. The person who enters after the first adds onto the first persons sentence or adds another and it goes like that. Each person adds a sentence. It must remain PG. You'll have to watch the entries in order to know what to add on. EX: (1) Once Upon a time there was a dragon. (2) The dragon had green scales that seemed to change when they moved. (3) They lived by a castle (4) where a princess was trapped. Each number in the example represents a new entry. So now the sentence to start the story? Sentence: Had I known then what I know now, I would have never....

Tell me your favorite quote(s)/poem(s) and then tell me why they are your favorite (this part is optional. I enjoy knowing why people favor certain quotes) I mostly want to know the quotes because why not. You get to share apart of yourself with me and everyone else and so will I. I'll make an entry if I can. Make sure to tag me @Teddybear9979 so I can read your entries.

This is from my friend's blog. She just restarted it and I'm trying to help her out a bit. She's only got like 2 readers. Lawyers are Faeries.
Faeries and lawyers live/work in courts. can't lie. they can manipulate truth and use misleading language. have to follow the letter of the law but not the spirit. good at finding and using loop-holes. can be semi-helpful or openly malevolent. obsessed with contracts. Write a story about a lawyer who's a fae. (can be 1/4 part faerie or full faerie. Or write about a supernatural enthusiast who believes a lawyer to be a fae and their journey to prove said lawyer is a fae. whichever story gets the most likes/responses will get posted on her blog if the winner is okay with it! Link to her blog if you'd like to post it there: www.victoriabowman.weebly.com Be sure to mention me in the comments so I can read it, keep an eye on the likes, etc.
