Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic

I’m so pleased to share this, and you bet I’m saddling up!

For those of you who don’t know Sue Vincent, she’s one of those special bloggers in our community who inspires people all over the world with her beautiful posts and #writephoto prompts. Sue has tirelessly supported other bloggers and it shows. She now has 19,000 followers and counting.

Recently, Sue encountered a new and difficult challenge: lung cancer. To make matters worse, the Covid-19 pandemic not only poses a serious threat to someone with a severe respiratory illness but has resulted in the loss of human connection when it’s needed most.

Now it’s time for Sue to receive something back from the community she’s supported for a decade. Let’s come together with hearts full of joy.

Join us for the Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic at the Carrot Ranch!

One way to participate in the Classic is to visit the prompt image, “Hidden”, at the Carrot Ranch. The image and entry form is live today – Monday, February 1st, 2021.

Enter a flash or a poem by Friday, February 19th, 2021, and you could win either $100 or a copy of one of Sue’s books. The form will allow you to give a small donation for Sue and her family. There’s also a link on the contest page. The winning entries will be announced at the Carrot Ranch on March 22nd, 2021.

Please note that Carrot Ranch will not accept entries previously published (even if published on your own blog). So use the form and keep your entry a secret until after the rodeo.

If you’re not ready to rodeo, there’s also a “Parade.” Reblog one of Sue’s posts from any of her sites (Daily Echo or France and Vincent) with a comment about why you found it special. You can follow her blogs. Read one of her books, then leave reviews where you can.

Help us celebrate a blogging hero and very deserving person. Plus, it’s a ton of fun.

Saddle up, everyone! It’s time for a Carrot Ranch Rodeo like none before. The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic begins today, and it’ll be a TUFF prompt to fit within 99 words. 

See you at the Ranch, buckaroos!

    While I am a bit technically challenged – I did enter the contest with both a poem and a flash fiction piece. I am happy to have also ordered two books by Sue and they have already arrived.

    Cheers, Jules

  6. I saddled up also, Diana. Great fun, and I’m going to send this Carrot Ranch link to some of my writing students and see if they want to play also. I always enjoy Sue’s posts and learn so much from her. She’s a strong, resilient, spiritual and amazing woman. I’m praying – so many of us are – that she gets better. ❀

    • That’s a great idea to send the link to your students! 99 words isn’t a huge hurdle, and it’s fun writing practice. I’m so glad you’re playing, Pam. I can’t wait to read all the entries when they come out. And you’re right about Sue. A special person who deserves the love and prayers. ❀

    I’ve enjoyed Sue’s posts for a long time now but did not know the cause of her illness. Now that I do, I’m going to do something I should have done before – buy her books. All too often we think, “oh, that author writes well, but it’s not my genre of choice”. I’ve been guilty of that, but I’m going to remedy it right now.
    Thank you, Diana, for providing this opportunity to help someone who really is a hero.

    • The cancer is frightening and the treatment doesn’t sound much better, but Sue continues to share her wisdom and beautiful self with us. I haven’t seen you write much flash fiction, Jacqui. Are you thinking of giving the rodeo a try?

    • Thanks for visiting, Kirt. I’ve followed Sue for years and written poems and stories based on her prompts including two books! That, plus her reflections on life and spirit are beautiful and often profound. This is the least I can do. Thanks for your kind comment. I hope you have a wonderfully creative week. πŸ˜€
