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 Magic Camera
Ellie’s new phone camera was supposed to bring joy into your life. She needed more joy in her life. Since her husband passed away, all she could feel was sad and depressed. When the new phone camera arrived, she couldn’t wait to give it a try! Whenever she framed something in the screen, it didn’t show exactly what she was seeing. Instead, it showed the way the object looked in its early years, before it ever saw hard times or struggled to survive. The old lady looked like a happy baby when she took the picture. The old dead oak tree looked like a young sapling with new growth. The shaggy gray dog looked like a young pup full of energy and excitement. Ellie couldn’t wait to travel with the camera and see what adventures it would take her on! Come join her for a trip of a lifetime! (149 words)
