Thursday Prompt: Camp Fire Stories

It's summer time a great time to pack your tent and head to the woods for some time away from technology and get back in tune with nature. Oh and make s'mores! Camping has many traditions but the best known tradition is telling stories around the campfire. Some are funny others are meant to make you zip your sleeping bag all the way up for safety.

Today we're going to have a little fun creating our own campfire legends. Here is a list of campfire songs to inspire your story. You can use the song title or theme in your story. It must be at least 500 words. Can't wait to hear your tales as we roast some marshmallows! Now here's that list.

“House of the Rising Sun” – The Animals
“Take Me Home, Country Roads” – John Denver
“Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” – Harry Belafonte
 "Do Your Ears Hang Low?"
"Cat Came Back"
"Boa Constrictor"

Google song title for the full lyrics. There are many other campsongs to use out ther so if none of these spark an idea try searching for more. Have fun and don't let your s'mores get cold. :)

You'll want to be sure and stop by the JLB Creatives Publishing exhibit table to not only say hello to Janet and Jean E., but in addition you'll want to be sure and get a firsthand look at our newly released, pioneering Journey to Publication (JTP) Writing Program Curriculum. 

With NOVICE and ADVANCED editions available this proven effective professional writing program, for serious authors, offers opportunities other writing program curricula do not. For instance, with every purchased copy of JTP someone in your group will be selected for publication by JLB Creatives Publishing for free. If you're an individual purchasing the program for self-enrichment you'll automatically be the selected one! 

You will not only learn the art of creative writing. You'll learn what it takes to become an author as you journey through multiple genres, discover how to submit your work to publishers, and unleash the power of the ins and outs of how to build your author platform on social media. And that's just the tip of the iceberg regarding the wealth of information and reference you will have at your fingertips. 

The JTP authors consist of JLB Creatives Publishing top 5 team members who hold over 100 years combined experience in the industry.  

The curriculum is extremely interactive, and highly diverse. It is perfect for individuals or home schooling (individuals or groups) as well as libraries, writing clubs and other community organizations. The JTP writing program can also be considered a career path. In addition to our regular editions, we are excited to announce that college editions are now available, complete with instructor manuals and textbooks.

For an in-depth look at this amazing, one-of-a-kind writing program that educates serious authors on far more than just creative writing skills, and dives into the realms of the publishing world and what to expect as an author come see us at FAPA in August, and be sure to visit our website
