Blazing Laptops

The Blazing Laptops Liar-Liar-Pants-On-Fire Two-Lies-And-A-Truth Challenge

Since this is our 10th Annual Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon, we wanted to shake things up a bit and have some writerly fun!

The challenge—if you choose to accept it—is to make a short video in which you tell viewers three things about yourself. The writerly fun part is that two of your statements should be outright lies—only one statement is true. See if you can write the lies to be believable enough about you that you fool even your best friends!

How does this raise money for San Diego Writers, Ink? We are using as our model the very successful ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. As with that challenge, when you post your video to your Facebook account, you will tag/challenge three of your friends to make videos of their own. If they fail to do that within 48hours, you will ask them to make a donation to your Blazing Laptops fundraising page. Better yet, encourage them to make a video AND donate—that way, the circle widens and we let more folks know about SDWI, and move closer to our goal of raising $20,000 in 2017!

Thank you for having fun with us in this special YEAR 10 of Blazing Laptops!
