This is the first Friday of the month, so I am blogging at Christian Children’s Authors (CCA). I’m sharing some thoughts on last weekend’s author fair and how I prepared for it. You can find my post at http://christianchildrensauthors.com/2017/05/05/praying-for-confidence
One of the things I did at this event is have a poster board where attendees could vote on which story ideas I’ve come up with over the past few years that they would most like to see. I also had a typed out sheet for Middle Grade/Tween and another for Young Adult and Adult. I’ll be sharing those results soon.
As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be participating in STORYSTORM this month where I endeavor to create 30 story ideas in 30 days. I’ll be posting my ideas at this blog to keep track of them. Since I’ve been busy goofing off, I was a few days behind in getting started. Here are my first three story ideas:
- Idea 1: As you may know, I am a lover of history. I would like to start a time travel series where two or three kids (maybe siblings, maybe friends) travel to the past via a certain object (perhaps an old diary from an ancestor or locket). The kids would meet historical figures along the way and help solve some problem. Once the problem is solved the object would bring them back home. My first stop would be Colonial America, then maybe America during the Civil War, and perhaps they would even spend some time with one of our former presidents.
- Idea 2: I would also like to create a Scooby-Doo type mystery series where a group of kids get themselves mixed up in solving crazy mysteries.
- Idea 3: Last idea for today would be a short story about Mother Goose characters getting their rhymes all mixed up.
Does STORYSTORM sound like something you would enjoy? Registration is open through January 7.
