Three years ago I bought a book in Tampa which is meant to be a great for creative like minds and for the past three years I have made it my New Years Resolution to complete it. The book is called 642 Things To Write About by The San Francisco Writers Grotto. I never got round to writing many of them so what’s a better way then getting through them then writing a few as an article each week! Enjoy.
460. Write a children’s story set in the woods
Once upon a time there was a squirrel who lived in the woods called Fred. He had the biggest and tallest tree in all of the woods and the other animals would not talk to him because they were jealous and he would not share it.
One day an owl who was new to the woods called Hoot decided to make a nest in the tree when Fred was out getting nuts. When he returned from his trip he was so angry that he did lots of different tricks to try and get rid of hoot.
Hoot was not happy, he grabbed Fred by his beak and put him on top of the skyscraper in the local city and told him that he can only come down when he apologises for being so selfish.
The squirrel started to cry an apologized they became best friends and he gave presents to all the animals in the wood to apologise.
