Blogfests

Don’t worry.

I have not been eaten by a bear.

Yet.

It’s just that we are in the middle of high-school-graduation-8th-grade-play-rehearsals-and-performances-baby-shower-shopping-8th-grade-graduation-ceremony-and-party-planning-and-shopping-wedding-related-hysteria-vacation-planning-along-with-the-general-busy-ness-of-daily-life so I’m finding it a little hard to keep to my schedule… 🙂

I hope you all had the opportunity to read at least some of the entries in Cally Jackson and Rachel Morgan’s tension blogfest.  I thought it was really fun to enter, and to read all the other entries (although this morning, it was practically impossible to vote on a winner!)

It was such fun that I’d like to do a blogfest, too!

But not tension, because that’s been done 🙂

So here’s my question:  what do you think would be a fun blogfest?

300 words about character? Or setting?

One-paragraph plot synopses?

A one-sentence pitch contest?  (Ooh – that sounds like a good one!)

A limerick contest (maybe on a certain topic)?

A segment of dialogue?

Other brilliant suggestions?  (But remember, this is a children’s writer blog, so all ideas should be appropriate for kids, MG, or YA.)

Please let me know what you think would be fun, and what you might consider entering.  (It’s more fun with lots of entries!)

I’ll look forward to your responses!

P.S.  If you’d like to join me in hosting the blogfest (as Cally and Rachel did it together) please let me know that, too 🙂
