200+ Followers Prize GIVEAWAY Contest

To celebrate my 200+ Followers I am having a GIVEAWAY contest:
You must be a follower of this blog.
Entries can be made by those with or without their own blogs.
Part 1: To win an amazon book voucher.
Your challenge is to write a Flash Fiction of maximum 500 words that includes as many names of the various different fonts as you can include. You must make the language flow smoothly as your font characters and objects unfold.

E.G. your protagonist Bradley Hand might come across a Book Antiqua. What happens next? I wonder who can include the most font names and still come up with an effective story ? Maybe your character Tempus Sans has a brooding moody temperament and whose brother Gill Sans is the complete opposite or perhaps Tempus Sans is a rather dark, mysterious location?

In other words you can post your entry
any time between 1st and 28th February,
but you must link directly to that post.

NB: I'm not being funny and Apologies but I find WHITE writing on BLACK / DARK backgrounds really bad for my eyes/headaches. It makes my eyes really squiffy.
So please consider how you present your entry
. Thank you.

I’d love it if you could PLEASE advertise this contest on your side bars, Tweet and Facebook about it. Thank you.

 The winner will receive:

an Amazon book voucher to the value of £10.00


  1. Wow!!! Look at your beautiful form!!! And what brilliant contests and giveaways!! Awwww wow! I'm so in AWE!!!

    Does it have to be exactly 500 words?

    Take care

  2. Congratulations on 200+ followers, Madeleine. And, good luck with the contest, it looks fun.

  3. Hi Madeleine

    Congrats on your 200 followers. I read Maximum 500 words, so assumed 195 fits... but if you are saying as near 500 as possible?

    I'll put the button my sidebar.


  4. Congrats on 200 followers! Yay!

    I added a link to the contest on my page. :)

  5. Thanks everyone, I've decided 500 words is rather long as I had a go myself, so up to 500 is fine :O)

  6. Hi Madeleine .. fun thought to take up the contest .. but rather too many other things going on at the moment .. but the thought of a story using the fonts is great.

    Tempting to put it mildly .. but definitely cannot ..

    Have a great Sunday and happy week .. Hilary

  7. Congrats on 200 followers! Will sign up with the linkey as soon as I have something ready :)

  8. This sounds great - I might try to give it a shot :D

  9. Hi Madeleine,
    Thanks for posting the Fonts blogfest - great fun. Not sure mine qualifies as 'flash fiction,' per the definition, but at least I now know how to put a link on my sidebar!
    Well done on the double century :-)
    All the best
