FOOD FIGHT!: Start Your Stories

It's here!  The Write Routine's First Annual FOOD FIGHT! in celebration of World Read Aloud Day.

So what do you do?

If you have a blog, create a post in which you start a story. This story should have a clear setting and at least one clear character. Set the scene. Be creative. It can be anywhere and anything.

There is no word minimum or maximum.  But remember, I am a kidlit let's keep it clean (until we start throwing food, of course).

Write the story up to the moment when a food fight breaks out. And then stop.

Publish your post, enter the link below...and then sit back.

If you don't have a blog, relax...your participation will be needed too.  Read full FOOD FIGHT instructions for participation here.

Remember, you MUST be a Follower of this blog to be eligible for prizes, including FREE registration in the Picture Book Academy's self-paced e-course "Writing Wonderful Character-Driven Picture Books." 

FOOD FIGHT! Participant Stories:


  1. Thanks for hosting this Marcie - Fun contest!!

  2. This is such a great idea, Marcie - I'm having fun reading the entries already!

  3. Here we go! But I have a silly question: are we to add on to the stories we visit?

    1. Yes. I had originally said that comments open tomorrow, but I realize that people will want to start right away. That is fine.

  4. Thanks for creating this, Marcie. :-)

  5. I stole the rest of the rules from Jen's site. Sorry, I was inspired to start throwing already - that's the way it happens, if I remember correctly!
