Summer is a Time for R & R!

It's summer which means time for some R & R!  That stands for reading and 'riting.  I have manuscripts to critique, picture books to study, drafts to polish, and more stories to write.  If that isn't enough, I joined Susanna Leonard Hill's Summer Short & Sweet.

Summer is all about fresh squeezed lemon aid, so I thought, why not squeeze in more writing into my busy schedule!  After all, Susanna promised it to be short and sweet.  

For this challenge, Susanna is giving participants  fun exercises every Friday for 8 weeks, which run through August 24.  It's a mini exercise that writers can do together and share to keep us writing for the summer.  And get this- there will be prizes!  

Summer Short & Sweet will be a great way to keep my creative mind fresh.  Hopefully, it'll even give me some story ideas for my 12 x 12 in 2012 challenge with Julie Hedlund.  So, who else will be joining me in some summer fun?  Go ahead and take the plunge!

Here are other challenges I've participated in the past that you may be interested in:

    2. I understand. I almost sat this one out too. But the lure of SHORT and PRIZES drew me in.

    1. Me too! I wonder what Susanna has up her sleeve for us.
