Win a Doodle! Hooray and Huzzah!

This is a fun way to have a chance of winning a doodle by the very talented Mike Allegra. Do read the other entries – some are truly jaw dropping!

Hey, Look! A Writer Fellow!

I really like hosting blog contests!

And I really, really like doodling!

And I really, really, really like the fact that some people like my doodles!

So it is time once again for my semi-annual


Who will be the lucky winner? Will it be YOU?

The grand (and only) prize will be a custom made, one-of-a-kind, Mike Allegra doodle of ANYTHING YOU WANT!

“Anything?” you ask.

Yes, anything—provided that “anything” isn’t perverted. I’m a children’s book author, after all, so get your mind out of the gutter!

Otherwise, yes. ANYTHING!

Past contest winners have asked for all kinds of doodles. Like exotic birds…

A caffeine gnome…

A raven shapeshifter (whatever that is)…

A woman doing yoga and holding a pen as the ghost of her dearly departed dog looks on…

And (of course) that…

    1. Ha! I know, he’s good isn’t he? Talented people like that often play down their skills I think, because to some extent it comes easily – I don’t mean he won’t have worked very hard at it but he obviously was born with a skill many of us don’t have 🙂

      1. I’ve never quite been able to work out if I’ve done my 10,000 hours – possibly not yet, despite having written for 10 years now! And I suspect many of us could do something for this long and the end result still be patchy.

      2. My sister argues there’s no such thing as talent, only hard work and effort. I say that’s rubbish. As for the 10,000 hours, it depends on your aptitude, and your measure of ‘good’.


      3. I’m with you – hard work and effort count for a lot, but there has to be aptitude as well. I will never make a theoretical physicist, even if I dedicated 20,000 hours to study the subject – I just don’t have the talent for it. A bit of both is essential. And you’re right – it depends on your idea of good, but we all have different measures for that, don’t we?

      4. Ah, how very right you are, Jane – I feel exactly the same way. But I suppose that’s a good thing. It means we’re always trying to improve on ourselves and our writing. Surely no writer ever sits back and thinks, ‘Ah, that’s just perfect.’

      5. I’ve written poems that I felt that way about – at the time. I’m currently editing poems that I thought were perfect when I wrote them three years ago. I’m working on one that I edited last year AND the year before…


      6. It never ends! Some things you just have to walk away from, though. I’ll never make some of my ideas as good as I hoped they’d be when I first had them!
