The Winners are:
Vivienne Tuffnell (of the “Strangers & Pilgrims” fame.) (The Story)
Dewey Dewster (The K9 Journalist from Petsburg, Pawsylvania.) (The Story)
Lua Fowles (The personification of enthusiasm.) (The Story)
If you are wondering what this is all about – last week I had announced a storytelling contest around the following caricature.
I should tell you that storytelling of this kind is a different ballgame altogether. You need to knead your creativity and then shape it into a story that fits the given mold. It isn’t an easy task. In fact, storytelling of this kind can make veteran storytellers lose their nerve.
So when these three courageous authors decided to take the challenge – I was pleasantly surprised:)
I am proud to present the following three story writers, their stories, and their blogs to you:)
Author: Vivienne Tuffnell
Blog: Zen & The Art of Tightrope Walking
Vivienne is a writer, who has recently published her book, “Strangers & Pilgrims“. I believe that this book has the ability to mend broken hearts. (Read my review of the book here and read her Interview here.) If you haven’t read it the book yet, read it:) It’s there on my sidebar. I am happy that Vivienne wrote this beautiful story – it strengthened my belief that one day she’s going to dazzle the world. Thanks Viv.
Author: Dewey Dewster
Blog: Love those Wires (of course, we love those wires:-))
Dewey is a K9 Journalist who works from Petsburg, Pawsylvania in the summers, and from Furry Florida in the winters. He lives with his Gram, Gramp, Mom, and Toby. Gram n Gramp are of the human variety while Mom n Toby are two beautiful WFTs. Dewey doesn’t like rats…so if I had a hat to doff, I’d doff it to his strength of character, which prevented him from snatching Mr. Mouse off the caricature and gobbling him up! Thanks Dewey.
Author: Lua Fowles
Blog: Like a Bowl of Oranges
Lua and her blog, both are “like a bowl of oranges” – they’ve got thoughts that are fresh and that smell so nice. Lua is a young woman with a very strong feel of life. She has the ability to see stories in the most mundane things around – and then she also has to the capability to tell those stories. Lua’s creativity isn’t restricted to her stories, even her blog-posts make you think. Thanks Lua.
I would like to thank these three authors for their courage and interest in the contest. I would also like to thank all those visitors who clicked their links to read the stories:)
PS: Next I plan to post Poirot’s caricature:)
For the next contest, should I count you in? (Let’s say if there’s a character from Pawsylvania as well.)
Bellyrubs to you:)
Khongrats to your winners!
Khyra From Another Part of Pawsylvania!
Woohoo!!! Thank you so much Shafali, this was so much fun! I’m hoping for more story & caricature collaboration in the future! 🙂
I have another caricature in mind…and I hope that it will motivate other storytellers to tell their stories too.
Congratulations to the winners and the author of the wonderful idea to organize this contest!
I am happy that we had some participation. I hope that it will grow in future – and that you’ll join in too:)
*does a happy dance*
