February 5 optional question - Has a single photo or work of art ever inspired a story? What was it and did you finish it?
This whole writing thing is so freakin' hard, I wouldn't wish it upon my own enemies, but she's handling a huge obstacle thrown at her with grace and style! Make sure you read her post below.
Meanwhile...I was able to add all three of my books to Smashwords, which means that they will be available on other platforms like KOBO, Barnes & Noble, and Apple Books, just to name a few! YAY!
Stay tuned, because I'm thinking of doing a little holiday promotion! I'll let you know about it when I figure it out! Thank you!
Taking Back Beast World, Phase 2. Disney/Pixar's Onward comes out Mar 6 with a setting eerily close to BEAST WORLD, and it's time to speak out again--in a positive way!
Thanks for hosting me on this journey, Heather!
Adventure - Inside-Out
by Tara Tyler
We all need a little adventure in our lives!
|I love this picture!|
When I was a kid eons ago, I loved to go to the pond and discover. With friends, we would play family or castle or school or making movies. I was pretty bossy (still am) so I was usually in charge and chose my part first. I was the baby, the princess, the teacher, the director. I'm surprised my friends stayed friends with me! But we always had a blast. And I think most kids (like my boys) start outside and have just as much fun as we did in the day. We just need to keep limiting the screens while we can, because...
Inevitably, kids turn into teenagers. Ugh! The adventure goes Inside for a while (until they can drive--yikes!) True then as it is today, just a little more technology. Teens find adventure in video games, movies, YouTube, and social media. As generations change, I've found kids and teens are basically the same, even though we have a danger of becoming addicts to our phones, this is how life is now.
The Key to Great Adventure Inside or Out is taking risks, but being smart about it. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. If we limit the kids and teach teens to set their own limits, hopefully we'll all be successful adventurous adults!
One last thing: In awesome news, I heard books are making a comeback! We authors need to keep writing and inspiring kids, teens, and adults. Books are the best Inside Adventure for all because it exercises your brain which keeps you young. Just make sure to get some physical exercise once in a while too!
