Okay. You’ve probably got a pencil and some paper somewhere. And some crayons, maybe. Or markers. Colored pencils? They’ll do. Here’s what I would love from you!
I am about to debut my new story, “Fibbety Frog.” It tells the story of Sally Frog, who mischieviously disobeys her parents, Phineas and Polly Frog. Hopefully everything will turn out okay.
SO… get your art supplies and let’s draw a frog! I know you can! Send me your drawing of Sally, Polly, Phineas, or any frog on the pond, and we’ll have a cute little gallery of all the submitted work. Sound good? Okay then! Send your frog pics to firstname.lastname@example.org, and don’t worry, I won’t sell your work for a huge profit without you knowing about it. This is just for froggy fun! Keep watching for the submitted work, and then, coming soon, “Fibbety Frog!”
Thanks, and have a froggy day!
P.S. My version of Sally Frog is above to inspire you, hopefully.

Wow, time flies when you get a new job and you can’t blog at work like you used to. I am working on a couple new stories and some new projects, despite the fact that work is getting in the way. Hooray!
At any rate, I recently found a page out of a notebook from at least 20 years ago. It was about a “trip to the imaginary zoo.” I think it’s time I finished the story, don’t you? So, now the Zanimal Zoo is my destination, and somehow, while I was creating new zany animals that live there, it has become an alphabet book. It’s been done before, I know, but I hope to put a refreshing new Applegary twist on it. Here’s a preview of the work in progress:
Yeah, so far, so sloppy. I’m working on it!
I recently finished writing another story: “Fibbety Frog.” Before its debut here, I will introduce a froggy contest for the readers. Come back soon to find out how you can participate! Here’s a hint: While you are waiting, practice drawing frogs!
See you back here soon!
