Great post, Tina! I love your suggestion to take a notepad to the playground and observe the kids. ;) And thanks so much for the shout-out!
Once again, thanks so much, Vivian! I'm enjoying your book!
Hi, Tina. I love the idea about taking note of new settings. I think this will really boost my story ideas.
Thanks, Trine! I hope your summer is giving you lots of new settings to write about!
Thanks for the great ideas. Summer is a great time to observe - life just seems to slow down Perhaps it is because we have more daylight hours. My stack of books to read is quite tall and I'm spending lots of time happily turning pages.
Love seeing the photos your kids!
Thanks, Claire. You're right--summer IS a great time to observe. Happy reading.
Great post thanks Tina. Wintertime is a great time to wrap up warm and read, visit museums or kiddie watch... :) Loved your pics.
