Two days ago, I was having a somewhat heavy conversation with a coworker about loved ones we'd lost and how much I wished my kids could have known my father, and I'll be darned if an idea for a new children's story didn't pop into my head. Spark! Pop! Bang! Smacked me over the head. I love when that happens.
I've let it settle for a few days so I could work out the details in my head, but I think I'm ready to start writing it now. I'm going to try a new writing style since I think it'll work well for the story. Time to think outside the box, right? Why not?
Any new ideas percolating for you?
