Creative Limitations: Winners and News!!!!!!

Lauren is back with the names of the winners from the contest I posted a couple months ago. Sorry about it taking so long to get this to you! Make sure to keep reading, to the end, because I'm about to announce a new contest and challenge of sorts, one that I hope you all will love!!

Hello! Lauren is back again! If you didn’t already know a couple of weeks back I did a guest blog post about a six word contest here. Since I’m back that can only mean one thing right?

The results of the contest are in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so I know this is the very first contest done on this blog and the very first contest I’ve ever held. So as a result we got some amazing entries that were very hard to choose from.

All two of them :-) :-)

And both of them were absolutely amazing! They were both so creative and they really got my mind thinking about what bigger stories could go around them.

And so I couldn’t pick one. As a result you are both the winners!!!

As promised here is your prize.

Congratulations to you both!!!!!!

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not the kind of person that says “Everyone’s a winner!”. I think that declaring a winner is a good idea and I will do so in the future.

Keturah back ;b

Aren't those memes just lovely??? Lauren did a great job with them, so, applause for her and, also don't forget to congratulate our winners ;D

Ok... so, this idea literally came to me as I started formatting this post.

"I need a new challenge. But what?"

Lauren wasn't able to keep this going, at this time. 

And I didn't want to start just another 6-word story.

I  like originality. 

Excitement, fun, all that jazz. Unique, ya know?

So, what to do?

Then I came up with this brilliant idea.

I'll post an image.

You come up with a caption or "short story". The only rule is keep it under 20 words.

And then I'll choose a winner, and make a meme, with your words on that image, and post the meme with your words in the next challenge.

And if this goes well, I'll try to do one every month! 

We'll give this a try, and then see how it goes.

Oh, and yes, a deadline. End of January ;b That gives you a month to come up with something :D

And so, here is that image... let's get creative with these limitations!!!!

Yes, I was too lazy to find a decent picture, so I just used one of my fashion pictures. I sort of like this one, anyways ;b


  1. Ayyy, YAY!!! That meme is pretty cool! And congratulations to you too, Hope Ann!

    Cool, I like the idea of that challenge! I'll hopefully do it sometime in January!

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish. I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am. But my perception  has changed with experience. It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own. But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish. I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural. Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream. " Mom ," I said. "He's drinking soda!"  Left to right, back row: Jonny, Jonathan (Dad). Front row: Jacob, Keturah, Rebekah (Mom), Jonah (on Mom's

Peace During Patience

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” - Philippians 4:6 My family and I were sitting around the breakfast table several months ago. Mom had just read this verse. One of the kids laughed incredulously, “What is it saying? Be careful for nothing – live recklessly?” “No,” I answered quickly. My tone was very matter-of-fact, blunt, as if I were all-knowing. “It means do not worry.” The kids all nodded among themselves and life continued on for them. But for me life paused at my words. I had heard this verse soooooooo many times. I had always known what it meant. But now? Now it really meant something . “Do not worry.” This path I've chosen. I can not see it. I can not feel it. I do not know where I am. I have chosen to follow God, and no other. But why did He hide the light from my eyes? I must take a step forward. But I do not want to. How long w

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello. My name is Greg.  I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes. "If only..." But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me. It is cold. My clothes are thin. My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance.  I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon.  They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know. It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me. As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted. Convicted, but not  guilty. Years.  68 years for standing against injustice. How many years have I sat in here? I have forgot. All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials). I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release.  {If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing} I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day. Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very p
