Lisa Yee’s Peep

Posted by at 7:47 am in Authors, Writing Prompt | Permalink

Create a Caption on Ink Splot 26 A few weeks ago, Lisa Yee was here to tell us about her favorite food to snack on while writing. She also mentioned her muse, Peep, who goes with Lisa everywhere. Today we get a better look at Peep in this photo, but what could he possibly be doing in that big pile of apples? If Peeps could talk, I bet he would have some wild stories to tell! What do you think he is saying?


Write your caption in the Comments.

And PS, if you want to know more about Lisa Yee and her books, check out this video where she describes the "Milly Trilly" and reads the hilarious fart scene from Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time.

    my favorite food to eat while writing is junk food. it gives me something to do while i’m thinking

  46. mirialin_moon_knight4789

    ‘Lessee… Apples? Check. Pastry strips? Check. Tin? Check. Hey, you! Yeah, you in the green apron! No, not you! You! Yeah! Could you help me get the apples into this pie? They won’t fit! … What? Well, of course I’m making apple pie. What, did you think I was making GRAPE pie?’
    Do you think there could be a writing prompt on weird sayings? Like, instead of making lemonade, you could say, ‘When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then sit back and wonder how you did it.’ I guess not…
