Article Ideas!

The library is full of books. Full of ideas. Full of people.

Just met a person at my local library who has a very interesting job working with animals. After talking, was given permission to contact her for an interview for possible magazine article. With photos!

Where did your last surprise story/article idea come from?


  1. My publisher gave me an idea for a sequel to my picture book The Pea in Peanut Butter and that's all I needed. I rolled up the story in no time at all! Never thought I could write on command but I surprisingly proved myself wrong!

  2. Thanks, Allyn. Like most writer, I get ideas from many places, but I like the ones that surprise me.

  3. I think I would have to say that the majority of my ideas come from my kids. Good thing I write for kids!

  4. Thanks, KatieC. All my kids are grown, but I get to meet and work with a lot of kids in our magic shop. It is fun listening to their ideas on how the tricks work.
