Just popping online to check in on the contest.... oooh it's started a wee bit slow?
Nice to see some entries coming in now though.

For those who haven't yet entered.... just go for it!
Don't worry if you think your entry won't be good enough.
Every time you write, you learn something, and who knows... once you start writing this one and the creative juices start flowing... it might just turn out to be the best thing you've ever written?
But you won't know unless you give it a go!

Just a teaser entry. . . . since it was my idea.


(Authors note; this tale of the first Thanksgiving was told to me by a very wise person who heard about it from someone who was actually there so this is historically accurate.)

The Pilgrim John McClain arrived late to the Nakatomi Cabin where the settlers were getting ready to give thanks for a very successful year.
While cooling off in a small room away from the festivities, a group of renegade Indians attacked the settlement led by PoccaHANS Gruber. John hid and slowly picked off the renegade indians one by one because he was angry at them for killing some of the settlers.
He tried to get help but for a while, only a lone black constable understood what he was going through. And they talked for a while about donuts and smoked cigarettes that the Indians brought with them to the new world.
The renegades wanted to destroy the encampment to hide the fact that they were actually stealing bearer bonds from the pilgrims.
In a stunning finale, the pilgrim John McClain taped a musket to his back and when PoccaHANS Gruber tried to use his wife Holly as a shield, he blew him away and he fell out of the cabin.
Afterwards the pilgrims and the good Indians gave thanks and sang Christmas carols.

And thus, a new tradition was born.

I want to thank my mentors, Harvey Weinstein, Congressman Conyers, Donald Trump, Kevin Spacey, CK Lewis and Bill Cosby for this great honor.

Can I get a hug?

At least she was coherent. The chloroform hadn't worn off of mine. I had to work her like a marionette during the ceremony.
