Sending out an SOS
Well, another week and still no new story. I know what you’re thinking – “you’re supposed to be a writer, so write!” Well believe me, I am! Duckie’s grand adventure is progressing nicely and I will aim to have something new up (whether that or a shorter piece) up next weekend.
For now, though, I am asking for ideas from all of you! An opportunity has come up to write a blog for another website – I won’t say which yet, since this function won’t be launched for a little while yet.
But what I need to do is come up with a name! Considering it took me months (seriously) to come up with Squeaky Shoe Stories for this blog (read more about the background to that name here) I’m hoping some of my brilliant readers can help me.
This new blog will not have my stories themselves, but will be similar to my author’s blogs, dealing with things like reading, literacy, stories, children, book reviews or recommendations etc but targeted specifically towards grandparents.
I’m looking for a name that is somewhat indicative of what I do – something to do with stories or writing, that gives a bit of a warm, cosy feeling since I want it to be something fun, informative and interesting to read, rather than hard-hitting critique.
Some ideas that have been thrown at me so far are: Story corner, Storyteller’s corner, Story shelf, Fearytales (one I originally considered for here, but it was already taken on WordPress – go figure!), Cosy corner, or something to do with tales… all of these have merit, but none feel quite right.
So I’m throwing it over to you guys – what strokes of genius do you all have? Any and all ideas are welcome!
