#SummerSparks Day 4 – Go Jump In a Lake

Summer Sparks Day 4Go Jump In a Lake
by: Tracey M. Cox

NO, seriously. Go jump in a lake, or the ocean, or a pool. WHY? Because today is National Swim-A-Lap Day. Yay! And you thought I was being mean. *   tsk, tsk  😉   * 

There are many unsung holidays or national days that many of us don’t know about. Like National Hug Day… Or Bring your Dog to Work Day (I would NOT get any work done that day!)… And more.

By immersing yourself into new ideas, you can come up with some great story starters. I like to see what is out there and wait to see which ideas will float to the top, waiting to be written.

So splash on into the idea pool, take a lap,  and see what you can come up with today.

SPARK:

Go to Google. Type in “Silly Holidays” or “National Days” and begin exploring the unusual days we haven’t been celebrating!
