STORYSTORM 2018 Day 15: Melissa Iwai Mines Her Dreams

Dreams are amazing (and weird and sometimes terrifying). But they can also be a source of ideas for stories. The important thing to do is to write down your dreams as soon as you wake up, or, POOF, the ideas will be gone. Not that my dream last night of spell-checking the name of my granddaughter’s teacher would make a good story…but still. You get the idea! Write it down.

Thanks, Melissa! Thanks, Tara!

STORYSTORM 2018 Day 3: Let’s Get Visual with Mike Ciccotello

What do sketches, photos, magazine images, newspaper pictures, and art supplies have in common? ALL of them can be used to create story ideas!

This is a great idea for dreaming up picture book characters, settings, props, and storylines. Way to go, Mike! Thank you!

Grabbing my scissors, pencils, and paper to get my imagination pumped up…
