The Sock Monkey Stories

Shonti and I are making a movie together, and it’s called The Random Movie (so far.) We like to make movies, and this one is basically a bunch of skit-like movies all smushed into one DVD. Yep, it’s gonna be pretty awesome! One of our mini skits is a preview for a horror movie we invented. I thiught of the big idea and we both edited it till it was good and scary. Our motto? The scarier the better. And this one is scary no doubt. This horror movie, in a nutshell is a girl throws away some toys. One toy that she throws away is a sock monkey. And the sock monkey gets mad……and he wants revenge. It’s so good, last night we couldn’t fall asleep because we thought the monkey was gonna get us. We were like SO freaked out. Okay. Well, enough of that. So, I had this (really brilliant!) idea. Ready? You want to hear it?


Are you sure?

Okay; fine, fine, I’ll tell you.

We should have a CONTEST!!!!!!!!! Yes, like a real live contest. If you’re still interested, (why wouldn’t you be?) read on.

Time: Submission dates begin June 24 and end July 1. Submissions entered early or late will not be judged. The results will be posted on July 11.

Results: They will be announced on July 11(like I said before) There will be a first, second and third place. Each winner gets a lively badge to put on their blog! (No, you can’t have an e-book. I don’t have connections like TCWT does.)

Submissions: Send an email to my email. I’ll put it down at the bottom of everything. In the email, what should be inside is: Author’s name (Whatever you want showing up when I write BlahBlah by ……..), your favorite color, and the story COPIED AND PASTED! into the body of the email. Please put “Sock Monkey Story Contest” in the subject, and make sure your story’s title is where I will notice it. You should get a confirmation email; just to let you know I got your submissions and will be judging them soon. You’ll most likely get that email on July 29 or 30.

What to write about: Here are the three rules yiu must follow. 1. There must be a sock monkey in the story. 2. The story should be about 100-500 words. (A little more is fine, like fifteen-ish more) 3. Any not following these exact rules will be Disqualified, (so follow them!)

So, if you have any questions, leave a shoutout below in those lovely comment boxes. And that’s it! Unless, of course, I’ve forgotten something. (And which I probably have!)

Late Book-covers…

Okay. First. Yes, I’ve been gone for a while. Second. Yes, I missed my day(thanks to end-of-the-year school projects) And I’m really sorry about it. Really, really sorry. Let’s just forgive and forget.

So, this month’s TCWT post was What are some book-covers that grab you? Why? or something like that.

The first one is the Harry Potter covers. I love looking at these, and since I’m a HP fan, I have all of them. You find a lot of really big things in the book illustrated on the cover.



Another book cover is the Pandora… series. These covers are also interesting and mostly, colorful. You might have gathered I like a colorful cover.

Yet another cover I like is………the Mockingjay book’s cover. Ya know, the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy? I really like this one. It’s so simple, yet so perfect for the book. No, I don’t know how they do it.


And the last one. Marley and Me. I’m not wild about the book, I don’t think it’s amazing or anything, but the DOG on the cover is just so cute, I had to put him on here.

So, there are four purely awesome book covers I like. What do you think? Let’s chat in the comments.

Oh, and by the way, you should see if any of these other fellow bloggers like any of the books I liked! (Or, rather, covers.)
