Awhile back, I stumbled across a blog whose owner was looking for inspiration in order to write a few stories. I (as were others) was asked to come up with a name of a character and a genre. I was going to suggest a hardboiled detective, but I am sure lots of other people would choose the same thing.
So “Mrs. Polly Pickensfield,” who happens to be a hen, is what I suggested in the genre of Kiddie Lit that became the seed for a new story.
Read “Maestro,” which takes us back to a time when life’s realities weren’t minced in front of children, but were perhaps made a little more comforting with familiar settings and farm animals. I was quite impressed with the talent of the writer and the bittersweet story that came as a result.blogging | Comment (0)
