Spotlight: Creatweet Winners II

Good morning, Scribes and Friends!

Yesterday we brought you the guy who came first in the Creatweet Contest; Roland Ndu Akpe – you can catch his interview here.

Today we bring you the ONLY woman standing – Nneka Ezealor-Oladimeji

Winner in the first ever Creatweet Contest - Nneka Ezealor-Dimeji

Winner in the first ever Creatweet Contest – Nneka Ezealor-Dimeji

Read and enjoy her interview questions below:

 

ï‚· What movie character best describes you?

Hmm, let me see.. That would be Queen Latifah. In almost all of her movies

 

ï‚· In 140 characters, describe your first crush.

Oh! Those lips! Always halfway into a smile. Dark, wavy hair. Hint of a mustache. Perfect height. Medium build. Hands that got you dreaming. 

 

ï‚· How many tweets do you have at the moment – and how many times do you tweet on an average day?

2420 tweets. The number of tweets depend on my mood, but I’d say about 10. 

 

ï‚· What will a best seller you wrote most likely be about?

It would be a romantic comedy. 

 

ï‚· In 140 characters, describe your last kiss.

Stopping me mid-sentence, his tongue & lips joined forces to douse the flames of passion his hands had ignited. The flames had melted me.

 

 

ï‚· What is the greatest lie you’ve ever told?

(Laughs) That would have to be when I lied to a corps member who was teaching at my secondary school. I looked a bit older than my age back then. He liked me and kept sending me love letters and snacks. So when he started badgering me to “reciprocate his love in kind”, I lied to him that I wasn’t “normal”, that I wasn’t really human but some spirit. The look on his face was priceless! He never spoke to me again till he left the school and he always avoided eye contact with me. He was afraid of falling under my “spell”. And I, I was glad to have him off my back. 

 

Thank you ma’am!

She tweets as @neker17

Isn’t it fun?!

If you could sit her down and have a one-on-one interview session with her, what would YOU ask?

Join us tomorrow for the third winner! 

Thank yoU!

The #Creatweet Contest – Winners

 

Friends and scribes… Top of the day to y’all.

 

Creatweet Winners

 

On the top burner for my management and I are the winners for the 1st installment of #Creatweet.

 

The debates were very hard and long which is typical when you have an eclectic mash up as judges. The fusion of strategy, copywriting/creative writing and art direction produced a unique set of mechanics to evaluate the entries.

 

The mechanics deployed are as follows:

 

1. Completeness of the story: The narrative should be a closed loop – nothing should be left to the imagination. Complete resolution of the plot.

 

2. Content: How engaging is the plot. Did it startle and surprise? Any devices of grammar like symbolism or inversion? Any metaphor or personification etc.

 

3. Style: Inventiveness. Wit. Twists and Suspense?

 

4. And of course – the typical lexis and structure blah blah blah.

 

While all submissions had one or two of these elements, the winning entries resolved completely the causal factors and consequences captured in the plot (each in the last sentence). They had in them no imminent story arc that requires either a prequel or a sequel.

 

That said, here are our winners:

 

1st Prize Winner:

 

Ndu | #DOCB CDs OUT ‏@Bloody_Voyeur
He screamed, screamed. There was blood. She had stabbed the cheating bastard with a kitchen-knife. ‘Cut!’, the director called. #creatweet

 
Runner Ups:

 

Nneka ‏@neker17
#creatweet He slipped the ring on her finger as their lips met in a passionate kiss. She moved closer to him. And fell out of bed. Dreams!

 
SleekSniper ‏@oVunderkind
“I’m scared of spiders”, she said. He was hurt. “We can’t work out”, he said. “Why?” she asked. “No reason”, Peter Parker replied #Creatweet

 
Asides the N2000 recharge units we are giving each of these guys as a token of our appreciation for their help in getting us a working proof of concept for the

#Creatweet, the 1st prize winner would also be going away with a book – The Yellow World by Albert Espinosa.

A little something to encourage and inspire.

A little something to encourage and inspire.

Life is about following that inner bliss into a world of a thousand suns – the yellow world – where we run free and uninhibited in unlimited possibilities. That’s our wish and prayer for all our friends. Thanks for all the support.

 
The game is far from over. Watch this space.

 

Cheers!


The Creatweet Contest: Update II

Creatweet

Friends and scribes… Warm Greetings!

 

The first installment of the Creatweet was actually a proof of concept. What my management, Gambit, Moore & Oxygen (an eclectic fount of strategy, copy-writing and art direction) sought to do was to see the extensibility of Literature over new platforms other than print. And boy! Did they get a kick out of the exercise?

 

Mechanics and bounties are being worked on for the 2nd and bigger installment. We gonna be making something!

 

All entries in this first installment would forever be part our story. You‘ve helped create a phenomenon and we are very grateful.

 

We are currently sweating it out – debates upon debates – on the winning entries. Yes, we had quite a number of very good and witty submissions and the winners would be announced on Monday, March 18, 2013. 

Yeah. You read that right. W-I-N-N-E-R-S.

Till then… have a swell week. Creatweet is a continuum!
