#WEPFF - VALENTINE CHALLENGE - SIGN UP TODAY!

Hello folks!

Welcome to the first WEP challenge for 2016 - we open the year in February and it's all about the Valentine.

Does it hold special meaning, or is it just another day? Do you have fond memories such as the angst of young love waiting for a Valentines card from a schoolyard crush or were you the one who missed out while all your friends got loads of cards?

Did you have a nasty boyfriend or girlfriend who texted on Valentine's Day to break up?

Alternatively, did you have a husband or wife, the romantic at heart, who surprised you with a secret Valentine's Day trip to the place of your dreams?

These are just a few examples.

Poetry – Valentine's Day is all about the poetry – I doubt our poets need any prompting here.

For a non-fiction piece or a tale of fiction, 1000 words or less, use the prompts above or a story special to you.

For a visual piece, do you have a Valentine's tale that goes along with a saved Valentine, or one you created on your own – share it and tell us the story behind it?

Alternatively, post a picture of love or something that signifies what the holiday means to you.

We also know there are anti-valentine folks out there, and that's fine too. Tell us why and how you celebrate love, without the need for a holiday.

Make this challenge yours – what does Valentine's Day mean to you?


Here's the code if you wish to publish on your blog.

<script type="text/javascript" src="//www.inlinkz.com/cs.php?id=602708"></script>

<!-- end InLinkz script -->

Help us Celebrate February's Challenge!
We'd love if you'd Tweet one of these:

  1. Thanks for getting this up Yolanda while I tour the wilds of outback Queensland. I'll roll up my sleeves later today when I get inside out of these hellish temperatures. My brain is being fried...:-/

    2. Well, I'm not going to be able to fire up the laptop until tomorrow evening, so will be a little late to the party, but my post will go up tonight...oh, I see you're already up! Maybe I'll post now too! (I'm home in the air-con at Geo's sister's place).

  7. How does the code work if I want to publish on my own blog? I've never done this before, and I still add my name to the linky list? Yes?

    1. River, thanks for your questions and for joining the challenge this month. You copy the code and add it as a gadget to your sidebar or in the HTML section of your post. You may need a different code if you have a WP blog. Let us know if you have problems.
      And yes do sign up now with the URL of your blog. We change it to a direct link after you post on your blog. We add you to our side bar here at WEP, then we can see when you post.

      Denise:-)

  11. I have to apologize. My final edits for Murder & Obsession are back and I'm swamped trying to get them back to the publisher. I promise I will get around to read and comment ASAP, but OMG this one's a real B..t..d!
    Thank you for understanding!
