While the teddy bear story wants to be told, it hasn’t been easy to begin. Many days were spent trying to find the right way to introduce the story. I finally did. It’s a story meant for little kids (preschool to 1st grade) which is a new audience for me. Hopefully, the story will begin to flow more easily.
The second story is still in the back seat. A lot of my time has been spent recently on designing curriculum for a homeschooling AP US history course.(1865-present day). Big task but I’m enjoying it. It’s amazing what the US has accomplished in almost 150 years.
I’m also spending time working with CVFT’s production team for “The Music Man.” It’s been fun and a great way to get to know the cast and their families. I’ve enjoyed working on press releases as well as cast bios and I’ll fill in wherever else I can. Looking forward to the show in March!
Now that Fireflies of Hope is out searching for its home, two other stories are fighting to be told. Since I can’t take sides for which story should be written first, I’ll be working on both at the same time. (But honestly, the first one has currently gotten more attention.)
The first story is about the strong bond between a little girl and her teddy bear. They have always been the best of friends and the teddy bear is one of her strongest protectors. But one day, the teddy bear must rely on the girl to survive. He has been attacked by the family’s dog and needs immediate surgery. What is the girl willing to do to become a hero to her teddy bear?
The second story is about a young girl who unexpectedly receives an invitation to meet with a Supreme Court Justice of her state. From him, she learns valuable lessons about the Constitution and what it means to be an equal in America. Through his teaching, the Judge asks her to stand up to him if she feels he’s wrong. Will the girl see the Judge as an equal or will she buckle at the thought of his strength?
Back to writing….
