April 21 – birthday of Charlotte Bronte

Today is Kindergarten Day and the birthday of Charlotte Bronte, Barbara Park, Alistair MacLean, Elizabeth II, Queen of England

Tip: In the best stories, the main character has to not only overcome the external problem, but internal problems as well. She should change as a person, grow and become better. Make a character chart with internal and external conflicts.

Thought: “Writing is not about degrees or vocabulary or diagramming a sentence. It is simply about the desire to tell a story.” – Fannie Flagg

Teaser: Write a scene where your character is temporarily blinded. What happened? What does she do? What does s/he notice without sight?
