Book Arts Improv: Call #4

Book Arts Improv logo

Welcome to week 4, the final week of the Book Arts Improv!

This experience has been both incredibly rewarding and exhausting! I’ve never had my creative brain going as much as it has been for the past several weeks.

I fully intend to make the Improv an annual event!

Here is the last batch of suggestions:

  1. An unusual superpower
  2. Something you hope to never find in a first aid kit
  3. An inconvenient mode of transportation

To participate in the Improv, just comment on this post with a response for each of the three categories listed above. I’d like to keep this suitable for all audiences, so please, nothing offensive.

I will accept suggestions until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. On that day, one entry will be selected at random and not only will that person’s suggestions be used for that week’s book, but the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

This week is also your last chance to get an entry in for the big prize – a set of books that includes each of the four books created during the Improv.

Everyone who has posted suggestions for each week will be entered into a drawing (one entry per person, per week). If you have participated in the Improv for more than one week, each week’s post will count as one entry – if you’ve been following me for four weeks, then your odds are better.

One more thing – if the grand prize winner has already won one of the books earlier in the month, then I’ll send the remaining three books in the set. Another drawing will then be held for the remaining book. Hopefully that all makes sense.

Good luck to everyone and lemme have it!
