The dream • inspire • create • share (and critique) contest

 
I am looking for some links to post in my new, but very empty website...
 
1.  Send me any short story, novel, poem, or art, but you have to have it published on Booksie.  
*Yes, you read right...I said art!  I do it all the time on Booksie.  I publish it as a poem, and I list my name, year of art,  surface used, and choice(s) of medium.  And yes, viewers have given me some of the best written comments here.  In fact, some of the comments have become art of their own right.
**In a contest, I will only read a couple chapters of a novel.  It depends on how much time I have.
 
2.  Ask me in private message for my link to the website.  Go to website and in the contact area send me a link to your piece you want me to look at.  If you post link direct in my comment section below I will ignore it.  You can say you are interested in participating in contest or if you hate or like the contest idea, But do not post in my comments here.  The reason I have you going to my website is to ensure that it is being seen.  I also want you to see where your link will be shared, so you know it is a good place to have your link shared.
 
3.  If I like your piece...it wins!  I share your link on my website in my personal bookshelf there.  I load your link into my stumbleupon account as well.
*For those of you who have never used stumbleupon, it is a social sharing site that allows its members to "stumble upon" a web page.  It often gains me 40 extra views on my work...in first day.  Just saying.
 
4.  I will have multiple winners.  You can also share more than one piece with me.  Just don't send me dozens.  I am one snowman.   I will notify the winners in private message.  I will choose one winner's link to feature on my homepage both on Booksie and on my personal website.
 
5.  What am I looking for?  I want art house works.  Writing can be artistic, and well - art is art.  Be creative and think outside of the box.  Grammar is important.  
 
6.  The winner will be chosen on December 25th, 2016.
 
Since I am going to be reading your work and commenting, try to take a peek at Five Souths to North or any other piece of wordplay or visual I have posted.  It is not a requirement, but I don't mind asking.
 
Happy Holidays all...and good luck!

Sounds interesting, unfortunately I really don't know how to do it, or how to make a link!

You choose the story published here, and I would get the link from here if you chose to do the contest.

Would you be so kind as to come over & read some of my works to see if you feel it is the type of thing that you are looking for? I would really appreciate it!

That will be cool. I haven't had many entries yet. However, I love to promote the works of others every chance I get my friend of the pen. I look forward to reviewing your work.

I just started writing my first story. Sorry if I'm being rude but this is my first time on here. Would you mind checking it out to see if it is what you're looking for? I am trying to get advice on it and possible ideas for how to continue my story.

I would grab the link off here when I pick the writing. The only thing you would need to do is choose your piece or pieces. Thank you my friend of the pen! I look forward to reviewing some of your work.
