Contests for 2017
Currently there are no contests planned for 2017. Check the side bar "Contests for 2017" to see if this changes.

Participants who Post Their Journals
A list of 2017 participants who are posting their fake journals this year will appear near the top of the right side bar of this blog around April 5. Lists of participants who posted their pages in 2010 through 2016 appear lower in the same column. Please pay them a visit and check out their fake journals.

View a Couple of Roz's Past Fake Journals
Roz's 2009 fake journal takes place in an alternate Twin Cites, where disease has killed the human and bird populations. (It ends up being an upbeat tale of friendship.) Watch a video flip through of Roz's 2009 fake journal here.

Read an explanation of Roz's insanely complex 2011 fake journal.

Contest Drawing Results!

Above: The pocket size journal that was the prize in the drawing this year. Click on the image to view an enlargement.

Congratulations to Beki! She won the drawing for the small journal prize.

The name of everyone who correctly guessed that the robot sticker was on spread 46 of my fake journal was put in a bowl. Dick drew out Beki's name.

To help you spot the robot if you want to go and see for yourself, spread 46 has a woman on the left page, and a man on the right page (with the cut out words "Almost Nothing"), it was created 4.15.13 and this notation appears at the bottom right of the spread. The robot sticker is also in the lower right of the page spread.

Thank you to everyone who watched with eagle eyes and wrote in!

I have a few more posts coming up in the next two weeks before I wrap up 2013 IFJM. You'll find a post about my final thoughts about my 2013 journal, links to other folks' posts about their 2013 IFJM experience, and I'll also be posting a transcript of the text in my 2013 fake journal so that you can read that while looking at the image in the video—it will make my wrap up about the experience make more sense, or not. Sometimes I wonder…but that's what's coming up soon.
