// cwwc | challenge two & three//

hello, my friends. :)

the 5k i’ve been talking about was today. this is the second year my friend izzy has convinced me to do it with her. it was quite fun, actually, and it didn’t seem nearly as hard as the first time we did it. i’ll talk more about that once i get back from camp.

speaking of camp, i am going to be away for a week, without any internet access. so i’m posting the third challenge now, along with the second one. i won’t be able to approve comments while i’m gone, but they’re still going through, don’t worry.

Backwards Book #2

Hey, guys! I’ve got another Backwards Book for you today.

If you don’t know how to participate, here are the rules:

  • I create a book cover and post it.
  • You write a summary based on the cover.
  • Post the summary in the comments.
  • If you like your story idea, write it!

Here’s the cover:

backwards-book-2

Stop reading, scroll straight to the comments, and type up a summary. When you’re done with that, come back up to the post to read my idea!

My summary:

We Were Strangers

A young man keeps popping up in Eden Pike’s life. She sees him at college, at her job, on the bus, skulking outside her apartment. Then one day, he disappears. The only sign that he ever existed is the note and photograph of him that Eden discovers in her mailbox. His last message draws Eden out of her sheltered life and thrusts her into a perilous quest to find him. And, as it turns out, the stranger isn’t the only one went missing . . . someone close to Eden’s heart has vanished as well.

I look forward to reading your summaries!
