Smart Dummies Oath!

Here it is! The Smart Dummies oath. If you completed at least 24-30 pages (or 12-15 spreads) CONGRATULATIONS are in order. You have completed the Smart Dummies challenge! Your images just need to be black and white. The images can all be done in pencil. If you did more than good for you! 

Please do not try to send me your Dummies! We are on the honor's system. You MUST COMMENT on this oath in order to be eligible for the big prizes and have registered at the beginning of the event. You MUST comment on the posts of the prizes you want! I posted all the links yesterday. 

Edit: Your dummy does not have to be perfect. You can even say that you will be changing everything. You just need a reasonable draft. Reasonable draft = Clean and clear enough that you can give it to someone for feedback. You can interpret this however you want.

The Smart Dummies Oath: 

I do solemnly swear that I have completed the Smart Dummies challenge. I have completed at least 24 pages (or 12 spreads) for my Picture Book Dummy this month. I understand that lying about this will set my pants on fire. I will do my best get my dummy published.

I will give everyone about a week (Drawings will happen on October 8th and I will begin posting the winners on the 9th ) for people to comment on this and the prize posts. Thank you all for being a part of Smart Dummies this year!
