So I'm in "agent search" mode and am trying to get some more kid infused content for my portfolio. These are two different styles I've been playing with. Does one seem more appealing than another, or do you think it would be okay to show both?

If you frequent this blog then you've probably noticed my recent fascination with making creative writing prompts for kids. Since I now have a small collection of prompts I figured I should make a place on the interwebs where they can be easily stored, sorted and downloaded. So over the weekend I put together a little website that I call "Creative Kid Central." Trust me, it's gonna be big (at least in my own mind.)
So yeah, I made a website. Click HERE to check it out. And stay tuned to this blog for announcements and updates on new C.K.C. content.
(PS: I built the C.K.C. using Google Sites. It's a nice little system. Pretty easy. And nice looking to boot. I'd recommend it to anybody looking to build a free website.)

So, Tiff (my wife) is teaching 5th grade this year and she loves it. She's used a couple of my old writing prompts already with her class this year and they love them. So I've decided to do some more. Here is the latest:
PS: When I get about a dozen of these together I'm going to collect them on a website so that teachers all over the world can use them (I can dream can't I?) So, if you're a teacher feel free to use this, and anything else I've posted on this blog, in your classroom.
PPS: If you're a creative type (author/illustrator) and you want to make one of these creative writing prompts for the website just let me know in the comments. I'll gladly take volunteer work.

I really had a great time at the writing/illustrating conference last month. After talking with Kevin in the workshops he encouraged me to try this style I've been playing with a bit more, and see what happened. So I've been spending the last month working on some new page layouts for my book along with these other ideas. I'm curious to here any ones thoughts as to weather or not this style is worth pursuing (be honest I can take it)
