We took a break from all of the snow last week to duck into the bookstore to check out The Write Start. To say that having my kids pluck a book that I wrote off of a shelf at one of our most favorite hangouts was AWESOME is an overwhelming understatement. For me, it was a dream come true.
In honor of our joy and excitement, Jack and Gracie would each like to give away a signed (by me) copy of The Write Start. They will even enclose a custom short story (Jack) or a personalized scribble (Gracie) for the lucky winners!
For a chance to win, please add a comment to this post about one of your favorite early writing memories from your own childhood. Did you have a favorite place to write? A secret diary with a lock? A special person who encouraged or inspired you to write? A particularly pleasing poem that you will never forget? Please share!
This giveaway will be open until midnight Sunday, January 9th. Jack and Gracie will chose the winners at random, and I am so looking forward to shipping a couple of copies of The Write Start off to their new homes!
I can't thank all of you enough for your support and enthusiasm about this blog and this book. I wish everyone a happy, healthy 2011 filled with scribbles, stories, and smiles!
