Recently I put together two stories that I wrote for two of my other grandchildren.  And, it suddenly occurred to me that I should start another blog onto which I could post my grandchildren's stories (1st and 3rd graders).  WHAT! Am I nuts?

I wrote Shay's first (Shay and Logan's Little Yellow Duck Story by Grammy) and then I wrote Logan's (Logan and Shay's Little Green Frog Story by Grammy).  Since I illustrated (well tried anyway) them myself these stories (even though short) have taken me a couple of years.  But, the kids have seen and been read the rough drafts.

I searched everywhere for someplace to publish just 2 copies of both stories.  Well, I found out that I can't afford even a small publishing group so I resorted to having them professionally copied and placed them in a presentation packet.  I promised they would have their books by this Christmas 2010 (and I managed to keep that promise).

Then it hit me, I could also publish them on a blog!  That way the stories would be there for them any time they wanted.  I don't want to clutter up this blog with several pages of children's stories, ergo START A NEW BLOG.  That way, maybe, I could type up the one I wrote for my own children many years ago.  I could also write other stories for my grandkids.  SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!.......10 seconds lapsed......Thought about it.......and decided to go for it.

Six days have now lapsed…..been burning up the computer managing current blog… pull back and wait.  Maybe tomorrow!

What do you think?  Go for it......or.......hold off?

    What a wonderful idea and that way, the rest of the blogging world gets to read your children's stories, too! I'll cross fingers a publisher stumbles across them and offers you a great deal ;)

    I'm super keen to be one of your first readers and can't WAIT to see the rest of your illustrations. The two you have here look delightful!

  2. Been going through a couple of your earlier posts (you have been such a prolific writer, it's going to take me many moons - I can't even say that word with it conjuring up the image of your waterskiing antics!)

    The tale of the great foot-washing in the basin had me in hysterics! Did you ever consider becoming a comedian when you were younger, BTW? You really are a SCREAM!

  3. BRILLIANT idea!!! GO FOR IT, KT! :-)

  4. I think you should have a link to this blog and then you can easily go back and forth.
    Don't start a whole new blog. Just a separate section added to this one.

  5. I've heard you can publish pretty cheap with or the Amazon publishing-Create-a space. It might be worth looking into for your books because you are a great writer who deserves to have a book or two!
    I write children's stories for my step grandchildren and I print them out on my computer but I need to get them illustrated.

  6. Happy Fun Follow Friday! I am a follower! I hope you will stop by my blog and follow back!

  7. I say go for it. And I love your illustrations especially the duckies! So cute! I can draw stick people.
