Romance Hint Fiction...Something that I hope will be fun

Friday, March 25

It's finally Friday!  I was going to post a review today, and I still might, but I wanted to have something that was fun....ya know a great way to start the weekend and relieve a little stress.

I don't know if I mentioned this before or not, but I've started a new feature/contest for the blog.  So far it's just been for authors that have been, or will be guests on the blog, but I thought it might be fun to do an occasional one for readers too.  Have you heard of hint fiction?  I have to admit that I had never heard of it until browsing through the new releases at my public library and ran across a little book containing a collection of stories that were twenty-five words or less.  I was fascinated by it and the images that the authors were able to evoke is such few words.

Here is the definition of what hint fiction should be:

hint fiction (n) : a story of 25 words or fewer that suggests a larger, more complex story

Based on description of what hint fiction is about,  I found a video for inspiration for participating authors to base their romance hint story about, that way each story will be about the same video, but will also be different because it will be each author's interpretation of the couple's story.  The video that I selected was this one featuring David Gandy. (without the fragrance bit and the commercial bit)

I actually prefer to watch it without sound, so I can make up my own story about the couple. :) Eventually, I'll begin posting the entries that have been submitted, and at the end of the year readers get to vote for their favorite romance hint fiction story.  In the meantime I thought it might be fun for all of Musings readers and followers to make up their own Romance Hint Fiction story based on the video.  Just remember:
  • You need to use the video above for inspiration
  • You need to provide narrative or text that is 25 words or less
  • You need to give your story a title, and those words don't count towards your 25 word maximum
That's it!  Doesn't that sound like fun?  Any author that submits a romance hint fiction story based on the video will be entered to win one year's worth of free advertising at Seductive Musings.  But I think having something similar for readers might be fun too (with a different prize of course).  What do you think?  Want to give it a try?  Do you have a video that you would like to submit to be an inspiration for a romance hint fiction contest?  Write a story, send a link.  It's Friday, let's have some fun :)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
