"IF THERE WAS AN ANSWER" CONTEST FOR YOUNG WRITERS
One of my very favorite books to use when talking about writing exercises is The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg. These individual pictures with one line of text prompt the writer into creating a story from just that one line! And these pictures are so amazing, they sure can get you thinking! So if you're going to do the exercise anway, why not enter the writing contest on Chris Van Allsburg's site. Here is the address: http://www.chrisvanallsburg.com/writestory.html
If you win, your story will be posted on his site! How great would that be?
The picture for this contest is on the left and the first line reads: "If there was an answer, he'd find it there!" So get your pencils sharpened, your creative juices flowing and enter the contest!
