What you need to do is find those eggs and post your answers here, then the person with the most correct answers will be declared the winner.

The prize is a thorough analysis of any piece of writing, whether it be posted on YWS or not, and an adorable Easter chick:


If you want to be the one receiving this cutie in the mail, then go find those eggs now! You have until the 7th April 01:00am GMT to submit your answers here.

Happy Hunting everyone!


Heather, who goes by Rydia on YWS, has long been an aspiring author. In the early days of her life she attached herself to poetry and would curl up on the playground bench to scrawl down lines of forgotten virtue. Or, more likely, little virtue at all. At the very old age of 11, she joined The Young Writers Club and progressed into the realms of roleplay. Here she constructed characters to fight off dragons or rally to their allies' aid with healing spells; a joint love of gaming heavily influenced this fondness of adventure storybooks. A few more years went by before Heather became a serious novelist and she still considers poetry to be her favourite media for getting those thoughts down on paper. Outside of writing her loves include puzzle books, strategy/ fantasy games, movies, swimming, skiing (when she actually has money), crafty things, baking, food in general, fun pranks and anything involving snow.
