Lauren Oliver's Writing Challenge

okay so a lot of people have been having trouble trying to see Laurens writing challenge and etc. I was one of those people until i went to goodreads and it had trouble on there but at the bottom of all the coding and stuff was what was on her post that know one can see so I took the time to delete the coding from her writing so people can submit to her challenge because I for one was looking forward to it so here it is:

It has been far too long since I've posted a writing challenge. Blame it on post-tour exhaustion, lots of napping, and a decent amount of blowing off work to frolic in Prospect Park! But I'm back on the blog and I expect you to be back at your computers, too. This month's challenge is about—what else?—Summer Lovin.' Yes Your challenge is to complete a 200-250 word submission that begins with or incorporates the following sentence: “The first time I saw Kyle, I was standing in between the Dunk-A-Dunce booth and the Hoop Hop, wrestling with a gigantic stuffed panda bear. Not the best way to make a good first impression." Please note that Kyle might be either a girl's name or a boy's name. And the submission can focus on a romantic entanglement, or it can just explore the brand-new friendships that often seem to sprout around June and wither away by Labor Day.Get writing! I'll expect your submissions by June 18. Remember to send them to laurenoliverbooks at gmail dot com.And in the meantime…happy summering!
