A witch loses her broom the day before Halloween. Think of three places she might look and three reasons it’s not there. She finally finds it… (where?) Write a story or poem about this witch and her missing broom.
Write a Halloween story or poem without using the words halloween, pumpkin/jack-o’-lantern, costume, candy, or trick or treat!
Yikes, I’m a bad, bad blogger! I’ve been so busy this year but I’ve not stopped writing!
In fact, I placed in two national contests this year (2015):
The Institute of Children’s Literature Kindergarten Contest of 150 words or less
The Institute of Children’s Literature Early Reader Mystery Contest of 700 words or less (4th Place!)
I recently began submitting in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine Mysterious Photo Contest and my first entry surprised me with an Honorable Mention, which my name is listed in the November Issue! YAY!
I’m excited that things are finally beginning to happen for me! Writing is a continuous learning experience. I can tell I’ve grown over the years and I know I will continue to grow till the day I take my last breath. At least I hope so! (and may that be a long time from now!)
An only child has no money to buy a gift for her grandmother. She searches the house for scraps of any kind in which to create something special. What does she find? And what does she make?
