#MWWC11 Final Reminder!

wine-stain1-3I am about to head out for a bike ride, but I thought I would send out one last reminder about Monthly Writing Challenge 11 (#MWWC11), as the deadline for entry is this Monday by midnight.

This month’s theme, chosen by last month’s winner, Dracaena Wines is:



The rules

    1. The Challenge is open to anybody and everybody. It helps if you have a blog, but that is certainly not a requirement (contact me if this is the case).
    2. Write a post based on this month’s theme: “Friend”.
    3. The post should be at least tangentially related to wine (after all, it is the name of the challenge).
    4. The post should be more or less around 1000 words (I routinely violate this rule, so it is just there as a “guide”).
    5. Include the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge badge (above) that was designed by the very first winner, The Armchair Sommelier.
    6. Remember to vote!
    7. I will try and secure another outside judge for this month’s Challenge. If I succeed, the judge will choose the winner from the top three vote-getters. If I fail, the winner will be the top vote receiver.
    8. Once you post on your blog, please do at least two of the following and I will be sure to include a link here as well as on all subsequent posts about this month’s challenge:
      1. Include a link back to this post in your entry.
      2. Use the hashtag #MWWC11 somewhere in your post.
      3. Tweet, using the #MWWC11 hashtag and include a link back to your post.
      4. Send me an email: jeff(at)thedrunkencyclist(dot)com

The all important dates:

Deadline for submission:  Monday, August 11th, 2014

Voting Begins: Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Voting Ends:  Monday, August 18th, 2014

Winner Announced:  Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Thus far, it seems doubtful that we will come anywhere close to the record of 27 entries. In fact, we are in danger of having the fewest entries ever! That means we need several of you (including me) to lock yourself up with your laptop and a chilled bottle of Montrachet to bang out a few hundred words or so. Let’s go people what do you value?

I have scoured the internets and thus far I believe we have nine entries:

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  1. Sorry I won’t be participating this month… Although Californian wine is becoming my new best friend!
