Or tell me about your roommate's or brother's or friend's horror story....I've heard a few paper-shredding whoppers....see if you can top them! :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I don't know if my brain can go that far back!

Vicki Rocho said...

I'd love to enter but I don't have a 'worst' story. I always LOVED essays. (I'm such a sick puppy)

Michelle McLean said...

lol hmmm, maybe not the best game for a group of writers lol

Jemi Fraser said...

Like Vicki I loved essay writing - I'll have to put my thinking cap on! :)

AP History Test. I am a rightie but I learned to write from my mother, who is a leftie. Somehow that translated into me dragging my palm when I write and slanting my paper on my desk. To this day, I have to slant receipts to sign them (weird tidbit). Anyway, writing like a leftie has given me massive hand cramps during timed essays, so the AP History test was a whammy, what with the extensive multiple guess portion and THEN the essay questions. I just about died and barely passed. Okay, I'm being dramatic, but my hand *did* hurt. A lot.

That's my best/worst story, but I didn't enter officially b/c I already bought your book. Plus, my story isn't that great. :)

Happy New Year! These games are such a fabulous idea!
