Today we have some writing suggestions (writing prompts?) from my 10-year-old. She took some time to make a list of titles for possible stories for me to write. Since I won't be able to use them all -- I offer them free to the rest of you:
--A Girl's Life (clue, the 10-year-old is a girl)
--Winkie's Adventures (Winkie is her hamster, but feel free to substitute any animal -- or even a person)
--A Build-A-Bear Halloween (Hmmm, Build-a-Bear is a licensed trademark, so you'll have to get permission from them to write this.)
--The last good Pirate (I can't convince her that pirates are criminals)
--The dog queen
--I, Mr. Num Nums
--When Aliens Came
--I once saw Five (This one is wide open. Five what? Five years? Five dogs? Five ???)
--The California Girl (This is wistful thinking. We have relatives in California.)
--Nuget to the Crime Seane! (your guess is as good as mine as to what a 'seane' is.)
--Come Back, Jack!
There you are.
When you're stuck for something to write, just check this list out and your writing juices will begin pumping again. -wendieO
