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!)
The Polite Police
The town of Polite had just about had it! They were tired of people being rude to others. They were tired of people not holding the door open for others. They were tired of people not saying Please and Thank You. Adults were not even teaching their children any more how to be polite. Who wants to come to a town called Polite if no one even acted polite? The town council decided to take action! There would be repercussions if people didn’t start acting polite. They put up posters around the town warning people. Would this be enough to change people or will they spend their time standing in the corner? Or would their punishments be even harsher? Read more to see what the consequences were and if the town changed their impolite ways! (135 words)
