Children’s Stories Challenge Saturday August 22nd 2015


I have edited the last story in the book Freddy and The Jets. All four stories need to be read for further editing. Some photographs are above the image resolution but need to be enabling the reader to see the print or picture. I can print a page out on the printer to see how it comes ou as long as it’s inside the print parameters on the Edit Layout. This is seen if you get into the pink zone and above the print line then some of the print or photograph can be cut off in the book printing process. So best to have it on the page correctly.

Yesterday pumpkin seeds were planted and a type of vegetable like a cucumber. When we travelled a few weeks ago to see friends and family this vegetable above was given to us and the seeds are yellow. So seeds were somewhat dried out and some planted. During the day is warm and tomorrow around 30 degrees celsius and around 14 degrees celsius at night. Hope the frost is over as some plant damage and have covered some. A great weekend to you all.

About outback7

Hello - I live in what is called the Outback in Queensland, Australia about 7hours inland from Brisbane. My husband works as an Assistant Nurse. The town is small where I live and is on the highway. We have a tabby cat called Camellia. I have been writing poetry for about 12 years in friends and families cards. Also a small amount of poetry written at school years ago. I have also written about 10 songs and hoping to have some put to music. In the early 1990's I had a flood of inspiration and wrote 8 children's stories and later on activities. Having a teacher background used to planning activities in tutoring and now different ones in my stories. On Sept 21st I started a Children's Stories Challenge to self publish all the stories and blog on Wordpress. I will complete four stories in a book then the last four stories in a second book as size better that way. Each story has a message. It's great to have the motivation after watching the movie Julie and Julia (Meryl Streep) that gave me inspiration to start the Challenge as I did not have that much motivation before. I also want to be able to encourage people in their goals and what they may not have done for a while. Regards Madonna
