If you teach kids to write, or create in some other way, you might be interested in my Creative Prompt Series. Each Friday at The Book Chook, I post a prompt that encourages kids, parents and teachers to get started with a little creativity. My latest post was about using some story elements to generate plotting ideas, but earlier prompts have used nature, a poem, a video or those two magic words, "what if?".

Good day,
I picked interest in you after going through your short profile and demanding it is necessary for me to write to you immediately. I have something very important to discuss with you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( for full details.
