Thanksgiving Writing Contest
Thanksgiving Day is less than two weeks away and despite all the turmoil in the world, a government divided, bad economic times, disease and sickness in homes, and family hardships, there are still so many things to be thankful for. We have someone to love, someone who loves us, friends to laugh with and at times cry with, a beautiful earth that gives us light and food for both body and spirit, we have freedom, and we have life! With life and all its inadequacies, we can still find its beauty and joy.
As the saying goes, “He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” ` Epictetus
I was reading a magazine (can’t recall which) and I came across an article that stated when a person wrote a thank you letter, researchers found that their happiness soared an impressive 20%. Writing just one letter was said to have a very positive effect. So, in honor of Thanksgiving, I decided to create a writing contest with your happiness in mind. One lucky writer and reader of Colleen Houck’s Tiger’s Curse Blog will win a special Tiger’s Curse Package (includes: An official signed copy of Tiger’s Curse w/ Exclusive Content, personalized fan letter from Colleen Houck, Ren tiger blanket, Kelsey’s hair ribbons, Shakespeare note cards, jeweled book mark, bracelet, candy, and more!) and two runners-up will win a small personalized gift from Colleen PLUS an officially signed copy of Tiger’s Curse w/ Exclusive Content for a friend new to the Tiger’s Curse Series! This is all provided you meet the entrance requirements in our Thankful Contest. These prizes are a special gift from Colleen Houck to you!
Here’s how the contest will work,
