a book of poetry
a young adult novel, historical fiction romance, based on grandparents primarily set in the 40’s and 50’s
a novel, historical fiction based on loss and coping using my grandmother as inspiration
a children’s book series featuring girls in agricultural occupations
The assignment also asked for us to write about some of these and the ideas that we have.
I have several works in progress. I have several poems that I am working on. The theme that keeps recurring is that of the 30’s and 40’s and my grandparents. I have a few pages of a book started. The main character in this is also a character based loosely on my maternal grandmother. I tend to always use one or more of my grandparents as inspiration. I don’t know a lot about their lives as young adults and I think I just like to try to recreate what I think their life would have been like. When I am picturing characters in my brain, their faces are the ones that pop up.
It also asked us to comment on what writing challenge we would like to tackle.
I would like to begin work on is a children’s book series featuring things in agriculture as a setting.
These were my thoughts for today....
