Contests and Giveaways in the Writing World - week of July 2nd

After spending a few very needed days in Florida at hubby's dad's house enjoying the sun, the pool, and most important, the quiet, and looking at these

I feel like this today:

However, I am also extremely inspired by the gymnastics Olympic trials that I watched this weekend:

Gabby Douglas made the Olympic Team!

Jordyn Wieber also made the Team!    

I will do a separate post on how inspirational these athletes are to me and what we can learn from them.

Whether you feel the Monday blues or feel energetic and inspired to do great things this week, these giveaways and contests are a good way to start the week!

So, You're a Writer... by Carrie Butler is hosting a guest blogger, the wonderful Becca Puglisi of the Bookshelf Muse, who's talking about the "Three Ingredients of a Good Scene". But wait...there's also a giveaway for the one of the greatest tools for writers out there: The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression! You simply cannot miss this one!

Books With Bite is picking 2 winners to give away books of the winner's choice from the top ten on Savannah's list. The list includes Grave Mercy, Goddess Interrupted and other great reads!

A fun contest coming to you courtesy of Devin O'Branagan's Forum. The challenge is to write a piece under 1,000 words about a writer who falls in love with one of his or her characters. Contest ends July 15th, so hurry!

There's still time to enter the awesome giveaway that Tina Moss is running to say thank you to her 1000 Twitter followers! Lots of prices to scoot over there right now to check it out!

*As always, please contact me for the inclusion of your contests/giveaways into the Monday Contests and Giveaways in the Writing World posts.

Have fun and good luck!
