Creativity Exercise: Take Me to Paris

OK, you don't have to take me. But, I will share a fun writing contest that could send you and three of your closest friends to Paris!

It's easy. Just visit talbots.com and enter the Tales of Denim contest. It's a flashback to the six-word stories.* Just tell a tale about your favorite jeans. In six words.

If you win, I expect at least a postcard. Entries are due by Wednesday, Sept. 8. And remember: You have to play to win. (Six words. That's all we need.)

* Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway considered this his best story: "For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn."

I would love to have entered your contest. However I have been warned about using any part of my social security number, which, is the MOST private of my personal information.

I certainly understand the security concern. I want to point out that it's not my contest in any way ... I have no connection with Talbot's or this contest. Well, I do shop at Talbot's. And I hope to win the contest. But that's it. :-)
