If you're an aspiring picturebook author, you have to visit this website Illustrators upload amazingly colorful artwork, and writers paint the pages with their beautiful, funny, rhyming,and prose words. It's a writers playground! Seriously...I think I may be addicted. Thanksgiving is today, and I can't even begin cleaning my house until I've blogged, tweeted, and FBed about this site.

*Shameless plug to follow. Please Forgive me.* Oh yeah, and there are monthly and weekly competitions, with themes and prizes. This week, my story, What Do Monsters Do, is a weekly semifinalist. My pen/computer name is Writermama2. And in 1 day and 15 hours from now, the public will get to start voting on their favorite stories for this week. If you could check out the link and vote for me, I'd really appreciate it. But, honestly, only do it if you think it's the best story in the competition. I don't want to win because you like me. I want to win because I really and truly earned it. Just don't tell me if you didn't vote for me. My ego is very fragile:)

Thanks in advance!And Happy Blogging & Happy Thansgiving!


  1. such a fun thing to play around with! And, still wish I could meter my rhymes as well as you! :D

  2. Awww, thanks! Meter is tough. I read some really great tips on writeoncon, though; and I think that I'm finally starting to get the hang of it.

  3. I should have a go at that myself but not with the space story :) I might do a christmas one since it is soon the season.

    I'm glad I got to read yours, it really is great. I hope you win!

  4. I have a question about How long is the subject about curiosity? Can you send them anything like smories?

  5. Curiousity is over. This month is exploration. And the stories have to be 25 pages or less, I think. It's not your typical 28 page spread. Reread the rules for the exact page limit, though. I have a terrible memory.
    Good Luck!
