March 25th: Paint it Purple Blogfest

The time has come for me to host a blogfest.  I've been mulling it over for some time and it can no longer be held back.

The premise:
1) Post a short segment (a paragraph or two, really no more than 100 words) of your work-in-progess.

2) Paint it purple with enough metaphors, similes, and poetry to gag the most die hard beatnik.  This version is sure to be much longer than you original work (hence the word limit for the first selection).  Feel free to run wild, spitting in the face of good taste, genre norms, and Occam's razor.

Comparing the two selections should be a lot of fun.

Sign up below and schedule your blogfest submission to post on March 25th.
