Writing for Chicken Soup for the Soul


Writing
Originally uploaded by The Welsh Poppy

Hi Y'all, I was inspired by having lunch on Monday, Memorial Day, with my writers' lunch group. I am delighted to say I chose Crab Benedict with real crab for my lunch, and it was yummy and the first time I had that.
The writers at the luncheon inspired me and so today I submitted a story to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books. It is easy to do.
Just visit chickensoup.com, read their writers' guidelines, select a topic, and write a story.
As of today they are looking for stories for books about Christmas, Home Sweet Home, Family Caregiver, Food and Love, Here Comes the Bride and Married Life.
Guess which one I picked?
Home Sweet Home, about how my husband built us our first home, all by himself. Bless his heart.
What topic will you pick? I think Food and Love sounds intriguing.
Let me know if you decide to submit a story, and we can cheer each other on.

I didn't even know you could submit things to Chicken Soup for the Soul. Thanks for this info. Perhaps I might give it a shot. I don't belong to a writers group...but that sounds like such a great idea.

As always, thanks for stopping by to say hi.

Hi Terra,

Your writer's luncheon sounds like it was great. And crab - yummmm.

Congrats on submitting your story!
I love to read, but am not much of a writer - I'm more of a quiet observer. :)

Enjoy your day!
