Imagination Sparks Blogfest


Wagging Tales
You might remember this blogfest from 2011, well I've brought it back!

This is the IMAGINATION SPARKS BLOGFEST
What does that mean? It's easy. We all know at least one good warm up exercise to get our brain geared up and ready to write. That one creative task that gets your imagination bubbling with ideas. I thought we'd share them and try eachother's.

Here's what I want you to do:
  1. Register your blog in the link list below to show you are going to try and participate. Sign up will be available from now until the end of the blogfest. If you'd like to use the image above to let others know about the blog hop - go ahead!
  2. On the 1st of August (or there about - I'm not strict), post one of your favourite writing exercises that we can all try. 
  3. Read other people's blogs and try some of those exercises.
  4. Around the 8th, do a follow up blogpost to let people know which exercises you tried and what results you got. Visit the other blogs to see how they went with the exercises. (we all have different time zones, so anytime that fits your schedule is good for me)
  5. Get new ideas and make new bloggy friends!

  2. Leave a link for my blog post? You mean schedule it now and leave a link to what it WILL be? Or what? Sorry to be so thick, but some smelly dog came over here growling, like, "Graiiiinnnzzzzz," and bit me, and I haven't felt quite myself since.

    Seriously, link to what blog post?

  4. I don't have any writing exercises though! Unless cranking your tunes and writing the first thing that comes to mind counts.

  6. Brilliant concept! Being a process-fanatic, I'm definitely in!
    Can't wait to discover what gets others' imaginations going, and to discover other interesting blogs in the process.

  7. I could join, but anyone stopping by my blog to get some hot tips would be disappointed - I tend to just sit down and start writing :D

    Hi Charmaine,
    I did not have time to finish writing the full text for the RFWers July challenge, Honeymoon. Would it be alright to post that now?

  14. We can all use a little help. Who ever said writing was easy should sit at a computer and told to write 500 words that make sense, LOL.
