If you are looking for some boredom busters over the holiday break, check out Karin's Book Nook.

I love her Create a Cover activity, so I am re-posting her instructions, along with my contribution. I'd love to know if you try it!

Here are the directions for the Create a Cover activity.

1 – Go to “Fake Name Generator” or click

The name that appears is your author name.

2 – Go to “Random Word Generator” or click

The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.

3 – Go to “FlickrCC” or click

Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.

4 – Use Picnik, or something similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.

And here is my attempt:

When his world began to crumble around him, his anger took on a life of its own. Can anyone save Seth from self-destruction?

What I especially love about this activity is how it can generate an actual writing idea. I still need to get back into my NaNoWriMo novel and do some revision. But maybe I'll start a new novel first!
