Creative Gems 2 (and 3!)

Last year, I had the joy of participating in Creative Gems Volume 2, a collection of children’s short stories based on artwork by the wonderful Andrea Benko. I wrote a story about a snake who faced a big challenge!

You can find Creative Gems on Amazon!

I was so happy to discover that Andrea is heading up Creative Gems Volume 3 this year! One thing I love about this project is that anyone can participate. Whether you’re a new writer or an expert, if you have a great idea to go along with one of Andrea’s drawings, this opportunity is for you! I had a lot of fun writing my story last year and it’s wonderful to see the collaboration between so many different writers.

If you’re interested in participating in the third volume of Creative Gems, check out this page for more info! I hope I get to work on the project this time around, but we’ll see if life settles down enough for me first.

Happy writing!

When you write as much as I do, you have to take frequent breaks from sitting. A standing desk (not a whole desk, but a mini desk that will sit on top of my current desk with my laptop, keyboard, and mouse and extend upward) will allow me to continue working while maintaining that good blood flow to my brain. Thank you so much for your support that allows me to keep producing free content. God bless you! ♥️ E.J.
