Research / Re: big outdoor events kids go to?
« Last post by KeithM on Today at 04:43 AM »
Thanks so much everyone, blueboards are great! It's good to see that in a way local events are same as they ever were. Corn mazes is something I'll have to look up, sounds great, never heard of them even though there was plenty of corn near where I grew up. Dog sled races, wow Katie now that's an awesome event. I didn't realize there are ski jump spots in Michigan either. River walks, skating, zoo events, reading the list makes me want to go out a lot! Hmm, okay now back to planning . . . thanks again and anyone else who thinks of interesting, odd, people-full outdoor events keep 'em coming of course.

My nauseated head is still spinning, trying to deal with figuratively nauseously becoming  literally.

Congrats, Lorri. I recently read about a study that said creativity decreased with increasing age and acquired knowledge. The reason given is that we take shortcuts to a workable solution using what we already know and don't care to risk wasting time trying novel ideas. Younger people, like Dewey, I assume, would surprise us with their creativity.

Dear Friends,

I am giving away an ARC of my debut novel, PEASPROUT CHEN, FUTURE LEGEND OF SKATE AND SWORD. It is a middle grade fantasy coming out from Holt/Macmillan in April 2018 about a girl who wins a place a famous academy to study the beautiful and deadly art of kung fu figure skating.

Please see the attached and this link for details. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10213621331796956&set=a.1305438485393.46100.1513467221&type=3&theater&notif_t=like&notif_id=1503180099432840

Thank you,

Thanks, Melody.

The four years was spent writing it, not trying to get it into print. I've published four books previously but decided to self-publish this one because it's topical & I wanted to get into print as quickly as possible.
