We here at the Archives want to thank you all for joining our week o' fantabulous contests...have you entered them all? I daresay there's a mighty fine chance you'll walk away with one of the rad prizes that one of us has cooked up. And now is the time in the blog infomercial where I get to shout:
"But WAIT! There's MORE!"
Last week I relocated to Japan and naturally, I wasted no time in getting to a bookstore. And a stationary store. And a sushi restaurant. And OH MY GOSH DO I LOVE THIS PLACE. It's home, I can feel it...at least for the next few years.
So, awesome readers, for MY contest I thought I'd share a few things I've found in my recent wanderings. No ARCs at my fingertips here, but I do have up for grabs:
- A black sparkly notebook that no writer should EVER be without. It's blank and waiting for all your brilliant words, emblazoned on the front with: "CHEERFUL PLACE: You have a lot more potential than you think." (ITS SO TRUE, GUYS)
- A beautiful Japanese version of one of my favorite books THE LITTLE PRINCE by Antione de Saint-Exupery. Packed with full color illustrations, gold embossing (and lots of Japanese words.)
- A pen. Don't discount this part of the prize, people...this pen that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. That's all I'm gonna tell you. You want this pen. A huge part of why I came to Japan involved getting my hands on some of these amazing pens.
Prizes on a hotel bed...
Those is my perty fingers.
So what's it gonna take to win?
Comment! Say hi! Teach me a Japanese word! Heaven knows I need it right now. I'll even look HIGHLY favorable on someone who'd choose to share an awesome haiku (you can write it or just tell me one you like by someone else!)
And if you want to improve your chances even more...
+1 for following the blog
+2 for tweeting about it, blogging it, mentioning it on facebook
And go enter the rest of our contests down below! Contest ends next Friday (August 26th).
In the meantime, have a great weekend! Write well, enjoy the weather, and go draw a hat. Try to convince people it's really a boa eating an elephant.
