A short rhyme about writing

Posted November 7th, 2011 by daydreemer with No Comments

Just sitting here all on my own, I think I’ll write a book.
Have no idea on how to start, I need to take a look,
at other stories in the store, to get some inspiration.
It can’t be hard to write the biggest seller in the nation.

I wrote this while I was waiting for my daughter to finish an art workshop she was invited to through her school. I couldn’t think of anything to write about, so I just kept sitting there, all my own thinking about writing something, not realizing that I was actually living the beginning of a short rhyme.

Soon after I read Steve Hely’s book “How I Became A Famous Novelist” which has the same underlying message: how hard can it be…. its just writing after all!

Writing a Kids Picture Book is quite hard

Just thinking…

Writing a Kids Picture Book is quite hard, because when you use less words to tell a story, you have to spend a lot more time making sure the words you use, are the “right” words to use.

Also, I wish I could draw.

All feedback is appreciated.

Bat Bot Boy – work in progress

Here are a few sample lines from a work in progress story called “Bat Bot Boy”.

Also included is a couple of concept designs by the incredibly talented art director Deane Taylor.


I have no chance to once again,
be normal at the age of ten.
Like other kids who spend their day,
with games and toys and blissful play.

For I can’t do the simplest things.
I’m stuck now with these stupid wings

What am I now, I’m half a boy.
I’m no ones son, some life size toy.

Have I become a kid gone wild.
Some freaky superhero child.
Who hides by day, comes out at night,
to help the weak, and fight for right

The start of a story… maybe?

Posted October 18th, 2011 by daydreemer with 1 Comment

I think this may be the beginning of a new rhyming story:

I want to fly I told my mum, I want to do bird things.
That’s fine she said, go out and fly, but first you need some wings.

I know it’s very short, but maybe there is something small there just trying to get out and be bigger…. maybe.
