    Great ideas, Emma! Thanks.

    An addition — as an early birthday gift, a friend gave me a little box of “Rory’s Story Cubes” — 9 little cubes that have line drawings on each side which are rolled like dice. If playing a game, people take turns making up a story. I used them as prompts for a few of my PiBoIdMo ideas last month (that’s why the gift was sent early). They’d be great fun with kids (as well as grown-ups).

    Thanks Em….I would probably love Library smell in a bottle….and for the classroom that is in need of writing space check out this site One of our local first grade classrooms is in the running for a classroom make-over. Apparently the paint can make any surface a write on-wipe off surface for budding authors (or visual artists or mathematicians or musicians….seems the list would be endless)…luv ya

    Yes, I’m back. I have been spending entirely too much time looking at those links… er, make that “drooling over” those links. Particularly the Literary Gift Company, (and oh, how I’d love to have the Dark and Stormy Night game!)

    For some reason I am now quoting a poem by a certain poet with whom you may be acquainted…

    ” ‘I want, I want, I want,’ you say,
    ‘When can I have it? When?’

    Great suggestions! Since it will just my mum and I for Christmas, I am shipping gifts to my children/grands. Thanks for your tips. Will profit from these ideas. Love you, too.

    So glad you liked It Was a Dark and Stormy Night! You can now get it on Amazon and it is eligible for free shipping there. Thanks for your interest.
