...writers oath

yippee i won $25! i got real lucky and won it on on miss candaces contest to help get money for that really neat charity joy 2 the world. it was a gift card from that nice miss tahereh and it was so neat that she donated it. the card was for stuff at amazon. yikes! theres a zillion books there. how could i ever know which one to pick. after looking at so many books my eyes got crossed. ha ha. finally i picked a really cool one called for boys only: the biggest, baddest book ever. its full up of all kinds of of real neat stuff and im gonna use some of it for some posts another time. but for now i want to tell you about the other book i got. its called writing magic: creating stories that fly. wow! stories that fly! how cool is that! i love it! when it got here i jumped real quick into reading it cause i want to be a really good writer and i know i could learn a lot from it. in the very first part theres a writers oath and i stopped right there and made a promise to do just what it says. then i thought it could be really nice to share it with my blogger writer friends and see if they want to do the oath with me. i put it right up at the very top of the page. so if you want to do the oath you could just say it or you could put it on your blog or you could put it by your computer or wherever you mostly do your writing. if you got here and youre not a writer its ok cause you could just do a oath to do the best you can at whatever you do. next week im gonna share some cool rules for writing right out of my new book. for this week im asking...who wants to be my oath partner? i hope its you!

  13. Hi there, Lenny,
    I jus' found my way to your blog from Sharon Mayhew's home on the web. She had a lotta' nice things to say about you (don't tell her I told you, though, k?).

    I am on my way to post your Writer's Oath on my blog. That's a great promise to make to yourself... or, in my case, myself. Thanks for sharing it.

    Congratulations on your win. I think I'm jealous. haha
