Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails

Attention all bloggers!!  We’re doing a new thing!!  

We’ll try it once and if it is well received, we’ll set it up as a regular monthly activity!  Here’s the scoop . . .
It will be called “Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails”

Please copy badge!

Here's how it works:  We’ll give you a “special inclusion” (a character or line that appears SOMEWHERE in a story), and a date.  Then you write your story and post it on the specified date.  Easy huh?  Oh, and in terms of creativity, there are NO rules so let those creative juices flow!  

Now we want to make sure everyone knows you're writing a FFHT post so make sure you title your post “Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails” (or "FFHT" for short) so it will stand out in reader feeds!

If you want to see an example of how this works, there are two blogs you can check out.  They were given the Special Inclusion line of:  "I can't believe I actually touched . . . " to use somewhere in their stories (it's best to bold the Special Inclusion so people can easily see it).  Check their blogs to see what they did to use that line in their story.  But before you go, check out the information for our first FFHT:


Special Inclusion:  “When I opened the box I was startled to find . . .”

Date To Post Your Story:  Friday, July 25th


OK, here's the links to check the stories with the Special Inclusion line of:  "I can't believe I actually touched . . . "

We want to thank Madi, Frankie, Ernie, and their pawrents for their help in putting this together!!

this sounds fun! You could also do a guest blogger sort of thing where we all write a bit of a story on a different day with a link to each past post. The story could potentially go on furevers!!
