For April I want to hear about your babysitting antics!



Hello and welcome to the Contest of Firsts!



Every month I am going to provide a prompt about a first time, whether it be riding your bike or your first kiss, I want to hear about it! I want to feel everything, the pain when you scrape your knee, the smell after you've created your first meal, the touch of someone's lips as they kiss you for the first time! Be creative and descriptive with your piece *Smile* I want to experience it the way you did!

A Contest of Firsts is now accepting fiction as well as non-fiction! When you check out the monthly prompt, if you can't quite remember your first, why not make one up and let me live it through your character?

After you've written your piece I want it posted in the forum and then I will judge the winners! Please use the {bitem: } link when posting your piece, let me know if you need any help with it!


*Giftb* The Prizes! *Giftb*

1st Place - Choice of two: Merit Badge, awardicon or 10,000 gps.

2nd Place - Choice of one: Merit Badge, Awardicon or 10,000gps.

3rd Place - 5,000 gps.



*Buttono* Round Twenty Two: April! *Buttono*

Your first babysitting experience! Come on, this ought to be good. Even if you haven't babysat in an official capacity I'm sure you've looked after siblings or cousins or nieces or nephews. Come and tell me all about it!
!


Remember, it can be a personal experience or a fictional piece. I'll look forward to your entries!


Rules!

*Burstv* Items must be 2000 words or under, no minimum required.
*Burstv* I understand that some themes may require more explicit material, but please, try to keep it toned down a little!
*Burstv* Only entries to the current prompt will be accepted. A piece written previously can be entered but only those that do not already have awards.
*Burstv* You have one month to write and after that I will take one week to judge.
*Burstv* There needs to be at least five entries for all the prizes to be given. Any less than that and I reserve the right to give out only the first prize. If there is only one entry no prize will be given.
*Burstv* Post into a new post using the {bitem: } link and include your word count somewhere in the post.
*Burstv* Entries should not be altered after the deadline until winners have been announced.
