Chatterbox: In This Month's Issue

CB Egg Hunt!

So there’s been egg hunts on the CB in the past, but I haven’t seen any recently, so I thought I’d revive this fun idea :D

For those of you who haven’t participated in a CB egg hunt before and don’t know what it is — basically, the host (me) will post “eggs” on random threads. The format will go something like this: “Congratulations! You have found the XXX egg! Post
“XYZ” on the Egg Hunt thread to get a point!” And then you will post XYZ on the Egg Hunt thread (this thread) to get a point. Points can be used in the store (see bottom of the post)


1. Remember, eggs can be on any thread in the CB! (I mean, I’m obviously not going to post an egg on a solo write from January 26th, 2018 that’s on page 90 of Inkwell...or will I?...but you get the idea) 

2. Please, please don’t just cheat and post what other people are posting on this threat and not find the eggs yourself. I know I can’t stop you, but please be honest and play fair — it’s much more fun for everyone that way. 

3. The deadline for finding eggs is April 30th. You must submit all comments before then for your points to be counted. *Note: comments must be submitted by then, they don’t necessarily have to appear. Also, purchases from the store can still be made after the deadline! :D

4. If you purchase something from the store, be patient! I’m only one person, and I likely have a lot of purchases to get through, plus my own life. Drawn picturings and playlists will probably take 1-3 days, and written stuff will likely take up to 4-5 days, or more if I’m busy. 

5. Feel free to guess me (I’ll reveal myself after the deadline)

6. have fun :D 


Two points — Playlist/Song Recommendations (Basic – 4 songs)

Four points — Playlist/Song Recommendations (Deluxe – 10 songs)

Six points — Sketched Picturing

Eight points — Inked Picturing

Ten points — Written Picturing

Twelve Points — Full Color Picturing

Twenty points — Short Story (probably more like flash fiction in length): you give me the prompt and I’ll write a short story based on that. 

(Please note that THIS thread is only for claiming points and announcements related to the egg hunt, not for actually purchasing things from the store. I'll post the official store where you can actually buy things in a separate thread soon)

I found an egg accidentally without looking for it. And it said to post RAWRRR to claim a point.


This is pretty fun!

What if I just happened upon an egg hunt from four years ago right after reading this...? Can I still get points from it? :D *puppy eyes*

@Scuttles, no, I didn't post those eggs and therefore have no way of tracking who's found them, etc. Luckily, there are plenty of other eggs that I have posted around that you can find. I'm sorry, but I hope you understand and will still join the egg hunt! :D

There once was an egg-loving gnome

They called the backgarden home

Their verse-egg was found

(Wolfy picked it up from the ground)

I hope that this counts as a poem! 


Are you OGPancake or Writing? 

submitted by Wolfy, age wheeee, quite eggs-uberant

I now proceed to claim my point by posting "zzzzzz."

Ooh I found an EGG!!!! Right - a rhyme. Hmm

Well, of eggs I found one more

But i wish I had found four

Perhaps I will find more with time

And this is the end of my point-claiming rhyme!
