I like t-shirts. I especially like t-shirts with funny sayings on them. They make me laugh. I also like t-shirts that when I look at them remind me of an event or a person in my life. For example, my friend, Nicki, gave me a t-shirt that says: "Where my peeps at." Whenever I wear this shirt (yes, I wear it), it not only reminds me of the time I totally made a fool out of myself by saying very loudly, in a very crowded store: "Catch you later, my peeps." Which, by the way, I shouldn't have said, even if the people I was yelling out to were, in fact, my "people" and not total strangers. But the shirt also reminds me of my friends who made fun of me the rest of the night. I also have a t-shirt (a really ugly one) from the town where my first novel takes place, which I have threatened my friends, much to their horror, that I will wear at my book launch should that book ever get published. I love this t-shirt. It reminds me of the first time I went to that town and the excitement I felt seeing the place I had written about.
I've moved on from my first series and have started a new set of books about faeries. But now I'm kind of bummed. Do you know what does not exist? (At least not to my knowledge) A funny t-shirt about faeries.
There are funny shirts for writers in general:
There are funny shirts if you write about zombies:
There are funny shirts if you write about ninjas:
And, of course, vampires:
Then there are just t-shirts that make me laugh:
What's my point? I want a funny t shirt about faeries. Badly. That's where you come in. Make me up a funny saying about faeries that I can put on a t-shirt. And keep it PG, my peeps (so I can actually wear it). Best one will win the t shirt of their choice from those shown above (Don't worry, it will be new. I'm not going to get it out of my closet).
Also, I know some of you (like me) don't like to have to think too hard to enter a contest. So, I will be picking a second random winner out of a hat (or I will use one of those sites I'm always hearing about that helps you fairly pick winners). Points as follows: 3 points if you already follow me here (on my blog). 3 points if you already follow me on twitter. 2 points for any new followers here (meaning, today or after). 2 for any new on twitter. 2 points if you blog about this contest. 1 point if you leave a comment. (Oh, and if you want to enter the contest you have to comment. I'm not going to just put all my followers in the drawing unless you say you want to be in it.) 1 point if you tweet about this contest.
This contest will end next Friday. Good luck.
