Three More Days to Send in Your Stories for the Retell, Remix and Rejoice Contest

We are drawing close to the end of our annual Retell, Remix and Rejoice Contest. If you've not yet started writing your story, you need to start NOW! Our inbox is full of stories and some remixers are already taking their stories out into the world and sharing them through storytelling events (more on that soon). 

Head over to our first post on the contest to see how you can participate.

Mala Ashok, a remixer who has participated in a few of our RRR contests shares why she continues to participate and also has a little message for others :
I love entering the "Retell, Remix, Rejoice," contests - this is the third year I'm entering it. Each year there is a theme and I make sure I use the theme as a guide for writing my story. In the year 2013 I repeatedly brought in "trees" in my story "no school today." This year I've been more subtle about using the theme "wishes," in my story. Whatever I write, I have a great time creating the story and later reading the prize-winning story. Do write a story,  you too will have a lot of fun!
She also adds,
"If I remember the Mathematics I learned eons ago, you can select 10 pictures from 30 in 100,15,005 ways - that's right over one lakh ways! So, what are you waiting for just pick 10 of those pics and write a story about them. Go on, I did and I may even write another one; so there's 100,15,003 remaining ways for you to select the pics and write a story. Believe me it's a lot of fun!!"
We hope you take Mala's advice and we get to see the fabulous stories you can come up with.
