Challenge Results

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Here at As The Eraser Burns, we’re so happy that many of you are enjoying and benefitting from our weekly challenges!  And before Larissa hits us with another tomorrow, I wanted to give some well-deserved kudos!

First, we have some serious rock star action going on from Valerie Ormond who has, wow, completed ALL SIX challenges, and Veronica BartlesShirley Menendez, and Sue Poduska for completing FIVE. You ladies are AWESOME!!

Veronica Bartles gets a shout-out for not only completing Challenge #1, but also incorporating it in a lovely post on her blog! The photo of her dressed as a trophy wife . . . literally, is worth a peek alone. :) Check it out! And here’s also her results for Challenge #4, that she explains in this blog post.

Awesome job, Veronica!

My dear friend Lona Queen also deserves a major woo-HOO for submitting her interpretation of Ricky Roadkill:

Fabulous job, Lona, you ROCK!!

Now, as for the gal who recently submitted her illustration for Challenge #4: Writers illustrate and Illustrators write . . .

. . . um, yeah. Girlfriend needs to stick with writing and leave drawing to the pros, doesn’t she? I mean, seriously. What is that on the right, a bird’s nest full of hungry, deformed baby birds? YIKES!

Okay, okay, I admit. This is my drawing.

(And that’s a camp fire, thank you very much! ;))

Still, despite my lack of drawing talent, (and the fact that I do prefer writing,) Chieu’s challenge was fun! So it you haven’t started already with our challenges, come on! What are you waiting for? Jump into the mayhem with us and get cracking!

Challenge #1: Failure

Challenge #2: What’s Your Pitch?

Challenge #3: Poetry

Challenge #4: Writers illustrate and Illustrators write!

Challenge #5: Grip, Click, LEAP!

Challenge #6: Less is More

Remember: You need to leave a comment in the appropriate post saying you completed the task in order to qualify for the drawing of our raffle basket. And if you would like to share your illustrations or special results, please forward them to chieuurban(at)gmail(dot)com and one of us will post it!

Oh, and don’t forget, you don’t have to attend the March conference in order to participate. Your name will still be added to the drawing and if you win, you can either have a friend pick it up or we will bring it to the July conference for you!

Happy writing and drawing, everyone! :)

About Laura Bowers

Hello! I'm a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, blogger at Write, Run, Rejoice and SCBWI MD/DE/WV's As The Eraser Burns, and semi-empty nester now that my boys are in college. Which makes me sad. And kind-of excited about my new phase in life. But also sad. In the past, I've been a waitress, telemarketer, secretary, real estate agent, and during my broke college days, costumed characters at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt me at night.) At the age of thirty, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a writer. My first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house. I later used fond memories from many family camping trips for my second novel, Just Flirt, and now, I can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!

  1. Thanks, Laura, and SCBWI crew! I have enjoyed the challenges and appreciate the time you spent putting them together. I’ve learned something from every one, and have enjoyed reading about others’ experiences even more. Look forward to seeing people on March 31st.

  2. I’m really loving the push these challenges have given me! I just posted my answer for challenge #6. Does that mean I get to be a rock star now too? ;)
