Story Board

Chloë and Jess
(Click on the photo to see the whole story.)

We held a board meeting today about Bagley Beginnings.

Oma started. "I'm writing about a girl named Joanna Read who lived in 1423." "Is it about our ancestor, or fiction?" asked Jess. "Well, I know where she was born, what her life was like, what she wore, and stuff like that. It's . . ." "Factual," inserted Chloë. "Right," I said. "But I don't know what she looked like, or how she actually felt." "So it could be faction," said Chloë.

"I was thinking the book could be about a Time-TravelinOma, but I don't know how to start," I said. Jess said, "This is my suggestion. You could wear a locket when you come to tend that is filled with time-travel pixie dust. Then everyone could fly off somewhere."

"I don't see the problem," said Chloë. "Just take all your magical ideas—Harry Potter, shrinking fairies, Peter Pan, yada, yada, yada—and create your own whole new idea."

I'm going to have these two do the screenplay.

They sound like the perfect executive committee! What a great way for them to be involved.

I would not get bored of this story.

I love the locket idea. Brilliant. Then you could market the magic jewelry.
