(a.k.a. Rorschach Ink Blot)
I've mentioned Sarah Fine before. She writes the intriguing blog, The Strangest Situation. She's a YA writer as well as a child psychologist and does fascinating blog posts on the relationship between writing and psychology.
She's also running a blog contest. All you have to do is comment and say what the first thing was that came into your head when you saw the above Rorschach Inkblot (made by Sarah and her son.)
She's got some awesome prizes: (The following is in Sarah's own words--i.e. she's giving the fabulous critique, not me!)
- A $30 Amazon gift card
- A 3-chapter crit from yours truly (if you're wondering what that might entail, check out this post)
- A psychologisty reading pack: A Writer's Guide to Psychology by Carolyn Kaufman, Psy.D., and 50 Great Myths of Popular Psychology: Shattering Widespread Conceptions About Human Behavior by Scott Lilienfeld and colleagues. [Both of these books present a wealth of information that will 1) make you look like a super-smartypants and 2) help you avoid common mistakes if you're writing about anything related to psychology or psychological disorders]
