From Sioux's Page, Sioux offers this challenge.
She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.
The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs.
You can do fancy techy things with the photo.
(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)
Bigger and Better
Tom was always bragging to Penny that he could do everything bigger and better than anyone else. Penny would get so aggravated with him for exaggerating and just roll her eyes as she walked away. After a terrible argument one day, Tom swore to her that he would show her that he wasn’t lying! She refused to argue with him and told him to go ahead and prove her wrong. The next day she woke up in bed all alone and was surprised because he never got up before her. She looked all around the house for him but couldn’t find him. When she walked outside she saw a huge statue of Paul Bunyan in the front yard and thought he was playing a big joke on her. She walked around the statue and was suddenly surprised what she found out! Read to find out what happened next. (148 words)
