I've done it: I've completed my first draft of "In a Pickle." And I intend not to be the only one who benefits from this.
"In a Pickle" follows a boy on his time travels. In Charlie Pickle's honor, I give you the...
TIME WARP CONTEST!
Write a paragraph on what era (be it past or future) you would want to travel to and why. Tell me in fewer than 200 words and no fewer than 50. Post your paragraph in the comments section between now and February 28th to qualify.

1 box of Bic pens (12)
