ReFoReMo Mini-Monthly Writing Challenge: How to be a Ninja Writer
By Janie Reinart If we ever needed to be a ninja writer--the time is now in the new year because ninjas have courage and overcome obstacles. This challenge is from a few years ago. A ninja writer is highly skilled. They are silent and strong in mind. A true ninja writer can overcome all obstacles. Have courage ninja writer. Against all odds and form rejections, a ninja writer must believe in their ability and rebound fast on the keyboard. A ninja writer must master the element of surprise on the mission to be published. I was enlightened and selected my words for this intro by sneaking into this master storyteller's book--NINJA by Arree Chung. David Zeltser. “When Nina was born, the doctor gently thumped her bottom to make sure she was breathing. Nina karate chopped her right back.” My favorite line is when the parents bring home a baby brother aka Kung Fu Master. "What's your secret?" she asked him. He just looked at her. It was like listening to the wind in the bamboo. Corey Rosen Schwartz and Rebecca J. Gomez. This punny story is a fractured fairy tale. My favorite line: The fox said, " Surrender? No way, chicken tender! Your cheep little threats are absurd!" From then on the chicks made it their mission to rescue, protect, and defend.
