Back of the Book Blurb #22 Challenge

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!)

A New Perspective

Annie had a rough week and was glad it was all over. Everything she touched turned out wrong. Her family was mad at her and so was her boss. It seemed like everything was topsy-turvy today.  Too bad that everything she did wrong couldn’t look right. Then she would be a perfect person to everyone. When she got home she was so tired that she took a nap. When she woke up hours later, no one was home yet so she decided to go for a walk to clear her head. The first thing she noticed was that the house next door was upside down! Her neighbors smiled and waved to her. “Come on in!” they invited. Follow along with Annie to find out what was going on and how having a new perspective can change things. (137 words)

Good thing Annie is an eternal optimist who will walk right into an upside-down house! She must have figured, "I may be having a bad day, but at least my house is right-side up!"

I, on the other hand, am a pessimist, and would wonder what shenanigans those neighbors were up to, and possibly call the Salem witch-investigating board. Which is why I would never be able to see things with a new perspective, and remain mired in my rut.

I imagine that is how you are like, Pat. Like Annie, willing to experience a paradigm shift. Like the neighbor, being innovative.
