Here's another fun-filled challenge for you guys to enjoy! Be creative and do something fun in each clue or you could also do a Spell-it-out Challenge for each clue mentioned below.

Duration : May-June-July!

First on your list is to select a theme/genre for your book.
Completing this clue is quite simple. You can read any 2 books of your favorite genre
You can do a Spell-it-out Challenge and spell out your favorite genre.

Next is to select a title for your book.
You choose the tile of your book, either after the title of some other book
You can pick out several books each with one word from your chosen title and string them together.

Example: Suppose, my title is 'The Violins Begin to Play', I I can pick out the following books
each having a word from my decided title, like,

The Godfather (The)
Violins of Autumn (Violins)
Where Dreams Begin (Begin)
To Kill a Mockingbird (To)
The Perfect Play (Play)

No Spell-It-Out in this clue.

Think of a story.
Read a short story

First-lines are important too!
Here, you have to think of a first-line to your book (not more than 5 words) and read a book/more than one books whose title contain the words in your first-line.

Example: Suppose, my first line is, 'She looked at the sky', so I can read:

The Moon Looked Down (Looked)
At Her Feet (At)
The Godfather (The)
Under the Never Sky (Sky)

What about characters....??

Carol If school was out, I'd love this challenge, but due to work responsibilities and end of year exams, etc., I'll be swamped. I'll look forward to summer challenges though.
