Well, okay, not quite. But the nice folks at Andrews McMell Publishing sent me a few copies of the 2010 Wizard of Oz calendar, and I'm going to give two of them away here on this very blog. All I need from you is a short answer to this question:
What would you do if you could spend a year in Oz?
The best answer — the one that's the most fascinating or intriguing or original or just makes me laugh the loudest — gets one, and the names of all other entrants I'll throw into a hat and pull out the other winner that way. I'll also publish the winning entry here on this blog, and any others I particularly like, with the writers' permission. The deadline is December 11 (that gives you just one month), I hope to announce the winners on December 13, and I should be able to get the prizes out to you in time to use them on the first day of January (unlike some other Oz calendar publishers I could name — yes, I'm looking at you, International Wizard of Oz Club). Please do not use the comment ares of this blog to submit your entries. Instead, send them straight to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Along with your entry, please send me a legitimate name and e-mail address. Trolls, flames, spams, and anyone sending multiple entries will be disqualified. So get those creative juices flowing!
