Friday Fun: Children's Book Writing Genuis At Work

Is it just me or did this week seem to last for a month? The whole back-to-school transition always takes some adjustments (Hello, Mom Chauffeur?). But yesterday I decided to have a little fun while I was writing my blog post for MiG Writers about Debbie Ridpath Ohi's book celebration.  And this is what I ended up with:

A potato party! [There's a potato joke too -- if you dying to see it,  check out Day 4: I'm Bored Celebration at MiG Writers]

I can only imagine what my daughter thought when she came home from school and saw the countertop scattered with potatoes, tiny party hats and speech bubbles, because of course I had my brilliant idea for the MiG blogpost right before I had to leave for work.

But then again, since I write children's books, my kids are used to some of my crazy ideas and the sometimes weird things I end up doing to test them out.

I don't think you'll be seeing any spud stories from me in the near future. But it was fun to play around with them.

It reminded me how a tiny spark can grow into a bigger idea.


  1. That's funny and it does show what a great imagination you have. You're right. You never know where you'll get an inspiring idea.

  2. It's not just you. The summer speeds by and then the last week is molasses. Go figure!

    This is a cute idea. I've just come from Deb Marshall's about play--and this fits the bill completely.

  3. These are the CUTEST potatoes I've ever seen!
