November Offers Many Story Ideas


November is here. Leaves continue to fall and swirl in the Kansas wind but temperatures in our area remain summerlike. Before we know it, a cold front will roar across the state and we'll be hunting for sweaters and jackets.

We spent Thursday through Sunday in Dallas with our son's family. No colorful trees there, all green but also lots of flowers still blooming. We went to two football games while there. The high school game had been moved to Thursday evening because of heavy rain forecast for Friday. So, we got to see our granddaughter beat her drum in the Marching Band. On Saturday, we went to the SMU campus to see the game and watch the other granddaughter perform with The Pom Squad--a dance group--at the football game. Chilly and damp that day but it was nowhere near as bad as it was further south in Texas. We left home in October and returned in November even though gone only four days.

This month brings us many topics to write about. Check this list to see if any one of them gives you an idea for a fiction story, a creative nonfiction piece, or maybe a poem. Perhaps you'll think of a story for children
