The 100 Words for $100 Dollars Blogfest runs from the 1st - 31st January and the objective is to 'write one 100-word sentence (with a 5-word leeway, so between 95 words or 105 words). You may use ONE semi-colon, if necessary. There is no genre. The only requirement is that you love it enough to post it on various social networking sites.'

Here is my entry:
You probably think this is going to be one of those boring sentences that waffles on and on about nothing in particular and in a way you could be right – a sentence about nothing much at all is rather boring and can be as unappetizing as Belgian waffles without the corn syrup – but you have forgotten one very important thing about writing; what a reader takes from the words, and the order they are laid out in, is subjective, and so what one person thinks is uninspired prose, another may believe to be the greatest prose they have ever read.
Elena also hosts a weekly Video Log (Vlog) on Fridays, where she reads a 250 - 500 word excerpt from a writer's WIP. To see an example, listen and watch her reading the inspiring Jan 3rd 2000 by Summer Ross.
I'm thrilled to announce that she will be reading a first-draft excerpt from my horror novel in writing, The Devil's Song, in early February. I will let you know the date nearer the time.
Why not submit an excerpt from your WIP?
