WHAT is Summer Sparks? Well, I’ll get to that in a little bit. First I want you to know that I know how hard coming up with ideas can be. To help me out I have participated in a a few writing challenges:
THEN I like to participate in several writing challenges…
That being said, I still find myself stalling out mid-year. *waaaaaaaaah*
I don’t know. Maybe it’s the nice weather? Maybe it’s the kids being out of school? The gardening needing weeding and planting and harvesting? Vacation to be taken? There are SO MANY things it could be. Sometimes it my ideas didn’t pan out. Sometimes I’m in a rut and need a good kick to get going again. SOOOOOOOOOO….
Is a brain child of mine. I will be hosting this writing challenge *YIKES!* during the first two weeks of Summer!
Here is the run down:
- SIGN-UP: will go from June 1-15. I will blog a sign-up post on JUNE 1st. YOU MUST COMMENT ON THIS BLOG TO BE INCLUDED IN THE PRIZES AT THE END OF THE CHALLENGE.
- SUMMER SPARKS: June 21-July4 will be the run-time of the challenge. You will have until July 11th to catch up on challenge. (because I know some of us will be busy during the holiday)
- BLOG POSTS: Each day a guest blogger will talk about the different challenges and/or aspects of being a picture book writer. They will also give you a ‘spark’ of a writing prompt to give you an idea for a story.
- PRIZES: Some bloggers will be giving away prizes. You will have to follow each day and participate the whole two weeks to be eligible.
