Story Cubes: Tell me a story… (Contest)
Monday, August 2nd, 2021

IMG_8426I bought this little brainstorming tool years ago at some writers’ conference. “Story Cubes” is a brainstorming game. You roll the dice and whatever pictures appear face up are the ones you use to riff off a story. Do any of these symbols tell you anything? You can pick some or use all of them.

To make this fun, I’ll offer a prize—a $5 Amazon gift card—good for purchasing one or two stories…

Have fun with this! Don’t overthink! Here’s the roll…

Silly Jokes (Contest)
Thursday, July 22nd, 2021

UPDATE: The winner of the gift card is…Becky!

My family laments the fact I can’t deliver a punchline of a joke to save my life. In fact, they know I only remember one joke. One. Period. They ask me to tell it on occasion. It goes like this…

“What does the snail say as it rides on the turtle’s back?”

Of course, everyone groans and grimaces before I raise my hands like I’m holding a horse’s reins and say, “Whee!”

Everyone has a really bad joke, right? Even if they have only one!

So, your challenge today, should you accept it, is to tell us that joke! One lucky jokester will win a $5 Amazon gift card! Go!

Happy Saturday! (Puzzle-Contest)
Saturday, July 17th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…ButtonsMom2003!

We don’t need no stinkin’ holiday to celebrate a Saturday, do we? 

The sky is overcast outside, so it looks like it won’t be a pool day for me. But I won’t let that get me down. I have a fun, sweet story to edit today, so I’ll lose myself inside it (but not so much I can’t catch the errors!).

I looked for a picture online that embodied happiness and joy and found this one. It reminded me of all the old photos I have stuck in a box that are fading and grubby. Some gems that could only bring a smile to my face because I remember the moment better than the photo can possibly display.

Let’s travel down memory road for a smile! For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me about one photo you have that always makes you smile!

Your favorite flower? (Contest)
Sunday, June 27th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Jeanine Lesperance!

Our newly planted roses are budless at the moment, likely due to the stress of the sudden arrival of the hot-as-hell summer we’re experiencing at the moment in Arkansas! I love blooming plants. My favorite is the sunflower. The blooms remind me of the tall fields of sunflowers I used to bicycle past when I was on my way to the Army post where I worked in Germany. I got to see them throughout their life cycle. I also love roses (especially great big cabbage roses), peonies, and hibiscus. This puzzle has me ready to search for this flower to see whether I can order one. It’s lovely!

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me your favorite flower AND tell me if you have flowers growing inside or outside your house!
