Writing Military Mom’s First Contest!

Well, second if you count the “Name My Business” contest that no one won. (My husband came up with the name and he already had my book.)

This contest is for military spouses, active duty or retired. Write some of the special things you do to survive a deployment. Do you put something special in the care package? Maybe a get-together with the other families to do something different? Make homemade cards and send them each week or each day?

Whatever it is, tell me about it by leaving a comment here with a link back to your blog, if you have one. If not, just tell five friends about the contest so they can enter, too! Your entry does not have to be poetic. If you do not want to write much, just list your ideas for all of us to view.

Deadline for entries is July 1, 2009 by 5pm Eastern. This gives everyone enough time to think of their favorite deployment diversions. The winner of the best idea will receive a copy of Marc CB Maxwell’s book, SURVIVING MILITARY SEPARATION: A 365-Day Activity Guide for the Families of Deployed Personnel. It is a book filled with 365-days worth of fun activities to complete that makes separation during a deployment a little easier. It also includes space to write your thoughts and information you may want to share with your spouse when he or she comes home.

Good luck to everyone who enters. At the very least, you may get some great ideas about how to make a deployment a little easier by employing some of the creative ways my readers come up with from time to time. I look forward to reading all of your posts.

(Thank you to Marc CB Maxwell for letting me uses his book for this contest.)

By the way, did anyone notice the new button in the upper left corner? Yes! I won another blog award! Thank you to DeAnna of Write Moms for bestowing this button on my website. I'd like to thank all of the little people...my mother...God...well, you know the speech. :)
