#summersparks and that’s a wrap!

Summer Sparks

Oh my goodness!  What a whirl wind of two weeks.
Have you been inspired? I hope those sparks flew and a few caught.
Not only that, I hope you gathered more information on the writing process and will be able to incorporate it into your own writing to improve.

Did you miss a few days? Is okay.  You have until Friday,  July 11th at 11:59 pm, est. to finish the challenge and qualify for prize swag. Time cannot be extended because it is scheduled through Rafflecopter. So make sure you have them finished and logged in to any of the raffles you want to enter!

So lets look at what you need to do now:

  • Registered for prize swag
  • Have at least 14 new story sparks.
  • Take the pledge:

I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good.

No wait,  wrong pledge.   ; p
Now raise your right hand and say:

I promise that I have had at least 14 new story sparks during the Summer Spark Writing Challenge.

  • Now comment below that you have done these three things and include your name too.

I will have two more follow up post during the week and finally,  FINALLY, I will post the winners Saturday, July 12th.

Thank you so much for participating. I hope you have gotten as much out of this experience as I have. Have a safe and fun 4th of July weekend for those of you celebrating!

Happy writing!

DON’T FORGET:

You have five more days to finish qualifying for the raffle prizes!!! All entries must be done by Friday, July 11th, at 11:59 pm, est.

  1. I, Jeanne, do solemnly swear that I have done these three things and had a blast doing it! This is a great service you do. Thanks so much for all your hard work! I hope to pay It forward.

  2. I have my 14 sparks. I hope to start working on them in August. Unfortunately, school vacation in my part of Germany doesn’t start until July 30th, so I am glad I have my sparks written down..

    I am not sure how to register for prizes. Do we do that by commenting on each blog post?

  3. Kristi Veitenheimer has:
    *signed up for prize swag
    *has at least 14 sparks
    *has taken the pledge
    Tracey, it’s been a great challenge. Thanks so much!!

  4. I have so many new story ideas (at least 13, if not more)–thanks for the great articles and encouragement!
    I leave for a big trip this Friday, but will be checking my email while I’m gone. (Prize announcements will be July 12, you said–I’ll be flying to Europe most of that day!)
    Whether I win a prize or not, the real prize will be the new stories I’ll be writing on my long plane flights.
    Thank you, Tracey!!

  5. I promise that I have had at least 14 new story sparks during the Summer Spark Writing Challenge

    Thank You! Thank You! Thank You, for a wonderful experience! I am sorry to see Summer Sparks come to an end.
    I ended up with 25 new PB ideas and have “sloppy copies” (first drafts) for 10 of them. I will definitely be here again next year!

  6. I have 14 sparks, took the pledge, and signed up for some prizes. Thanks for the challenge. Ellen Sirianni
