Aim. Zone-in. Point. Shoot. No matter the angle, there are universal facets to playing the game that we all experience. Some players are successful right away and enjoy great bliss, while some endure games that are filled with trial and error, and require strategic planning.
In the novel, The Game According to LIfe, you have read the character, Life's story. She shared her experiences of playing the game of love. Stories of trying, failing, and trying again. But her story is just ONE of many...so, here is the chance to tell YOUR story! Join "The Game Doesn't Change" Campaign, an opportunity to participate in storytelling surrounding our experiences playing the 'game of love.' Collected submissions will be used to create a compilation of stories showing the vast experiences we share playing the game whether man, woman, young or mature. The anticipated book release is in 2019.
1. Choose a story: Tell us a story (a real, factual account, told in first person) of a time you played 'the game of love.' Content should communicate clearly and describe an experience between you and someone else--family, friend, or love--which ultimately led to a successful exchange of playing the game of love. Please keep in mind, not all "successful" attempts at the game end in marriage or long term relationships. All submissions should be typed in a Word document and be no more than 2500 words.
2. Bio: Write a short bio (one paragraph) including your middle name and first initial of your last name, age, and state of residence. You may choose to self-disclose, otherwise your full identity will remain private.
3. Submit: All stories and bios should be submitted through email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the phrase "The Game Doesn't Change" in the subject line. Completed submissions will be accepted on an ongoing basis through Summer 2018.
We are more than excited to receive your stories about the Game and can't wait to read about your experiences! Our sincere hope through this campaign, is to offer a collection of short stories inviting the reader to indulge in the journeys of many, highlighting differences in our approach to the 'Game,' but finding that ultimately, our objective is the same: no matter our color, creed, and orientation, we ALL play the 'game of love,' and we ALL play with the intent to WIN!
