Happy Monday, everyone! I'm soooo excited today. I have been since last week, but I unplugged for the holiday so this is my first chance to share with you all. *squeal*
It's official! Writing Prompts for Kids is alive and kicking on Amazon. Here's the info:

Author: Jo Michaels
Genre: Juvenile Non-Fiction / Language Arts / Writing and Composition
Buy Link: Amazon Paperback $19.99
If your child wants to write, but needs a little help (or just wants
something to write IN), this book is the answer.
With 24 solid writing
prompts and a guided setup, your little one will be pumping out words
before you know it. From author Jo Michaels comes a fun and interactive
journal style book that will spark your child’s imagination and get
them creating amazing things in no time.
Your child will be asked
What is my character’s name?
Is he/she human?
If no, what is he/she?
What is he or she going to try to do?
Mom and Dad’s names?
Where do they live?
Think of a time you
were scared. What were you scared of? How could you be braver? What
power would you like to have to help?
With pages for drawing book
covers and scenes, this journal will keep your child engaged for hours.
I bet you're wondering why the heck I created this book. Well, because I wanted something for my own daughter, and nothing I found fit the bill. She loves to write, but she has a difficult time with the nitty-gritty creation details. Then, she mixes up her writing journals or loses them.
I wanted something I could keep, too. Yeah, I know it's selfish, but it is what it is.
There are pages in there for drawing, too, because I thought about those kids who hate to write and figured a little art might go a long way in keeping their attention on the story. Plus, I get pages upon pages of her ten-year-old artistic self.
This book is for kids age 7-12. After that, they're too old for these kinds of writing prompts. A teen version will be coming sometime soon, so keep your eyes open for that!
My fingers are crossed your kids will enjoy it. I kept it as gender neutral as I could.

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
