Saddle up, everyone! It’s time for a Carrot Ranch Rodeo like none ever held before.

And this rodeo is being held for a special friend and blogger.
Who is Sue Vincent?
Sue Vincent is one of those special bloggers that inspires people all over the world. Readers have long been galvanised by her posts about mythology, ancient ruins, medieval churches, and her daily midnight haiku.
Even more have participated in and grown as a result of her writephoto challenge prompts. In fact, some of my own short stories were written with the help of some of the prompts Sue published on her blog. She even inspired me to write about man-eating sheep!
Sue has tirelessly supported other bloggers by sharing the responses to the writephoto challenge to her 19,000 (and counting) followers. And she also supports bloggers and writers by reblogging their blog posts.
However, recently, Sue has been faced with a new and difficult challenge: lung cancer. You can follow her blog to find out more directly from her.
The Covid pandemic has served not only to pose a specific threat to a person with a severe respiratory illness, but it has caused loss of human connection through self-imposed quarantine.
Now it’s time for Sue to receive something back from the blogging community
Sue has been a cornerstone of the writing and blogging communities for a decade. Now it’s time for us to bring the Rodeo into Sue’s house through her computer, and come together to help her and her family through this difficult time.
Join us for the Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic at the Carrot Ranch – a contest, parade, and celebration all in one!
How Do I Participate?
There are many ways to participate. One is to visit the prompt image, “Hidden“, at the Carrot Ranch.
All you have to do is write and enter a 99-word piece of flash fiction or a poem by Friday, February 19th, 2021, for a chance to win $100. You’ll also be in with a chance to win a copy of one of Sue’s books.
The entry form will allow you to give a small donation for Sue and her family. You can also donate via a link on the contest page. The winning entries will be announced at the Carrot Ranch on March 22nd, 2021.

I’ll also be publishing a new post here on by blog after the competition goes live on Monday 1st February, 2021.

Toby and Austin, the Cardigan Welsh Corgis, wish you all luck with your entries.
