It may be the era of computer apps, laptops, and Scrivener, but I still do some of my best story planning the old fashioned way…with a pencil and lined paper!
So, I created the Swirl and Spark Story Planner for kids, because it’s something I would have loved to use myself when I was young. Now that school is practically out, download it, print it, and place it in a binder for your own kids or students. I have a feeling there are some budding writers out there who will carry it around with them all summer. It may be just the spark they need to get their own story swirling!
And…to keep kids from falling victim to the reading summer slide, I’ve created the Swirl and Spark Reading Record. It’s fun way for them to keep track of the books they’ve read, (like an old-fashioned Goodreads for kids!) and award the best parts of each of them!
Keep checking back. A new download, pertaining to THE CRIMSON FIVE books, is in the works!
