Welcome. Thank you so much for joining the group! I want to make this a fun experience, but first, please introduce yourself... I'll start.

My name is Tanjlisa Marie. I am the author of the Codename Fairy Godmother series. I grew up reading Judy Blume, The Babysitter's Club series, and RL Stine's Fear Street series. I can still recall my writing phases: starting from pen and paper, to typewriter, to word processor, and finally to computers. What a journey.

I live in the Chicagoland area with my husband and two small boys. I came up with the idea for Codename Fairy Godmother when I asked myself what would my boys read when they became teenagers. Most YA books are geared towards young ladies and I wanted to make a series for both genders to enjoy. So I wrote the book keeping in mind to include enough action to entice young men to read it, enough flirting to keep the young ladies happy, and a sophisticated plot for adults to enjoy. Only time will tell if I succeeded.

Avalon daughter of Thanatos (a.k.a. the god of dea wrote: "Hi i'm Avalon. I'm 15 and live in Colorado ,I haven't written anything yet but i plan to just need to come up with a good idea. Any suggestions?"

Hello, Avalon. Welcome to the group! As far as suggestions for good ideas, what I do are creative exercises. I go somewhere relaxing (to me that would be near a body of water to hear the soothing sounds)and think about the things that interest me or that I find fascinating. From there I ask myself, 'is there a story to tell?' Ask yourself a series of questions, such 'can I create characters based on the topic of interests, plot, and conflict?' If you find yourself answering a lot of those questions then you have your premise for a story! Hope that helped and didn't sound like mindless ramblings. lol.

message 33: by Jenny (new)

Jenny | 7 comments Hi everyone,
I met Tanj in another group where her and I decided we are best suited to run for Pres and VP in 2016. We cannot decide who will be pres or who will be VP though because neither of us really like the idea of hugging complete strangers and kissing babies on the campaign trail...

I read obsessively and recently started writing a bit also. I am also working on BA thesis and am applying for grad school so I am a busy person.

Ah, Jenny, my political soul-mate! How I am so glad we found one another. *hearing violins playing in my head* lol. I don't know how we are to solve the dilemma concerning who will run for President and VP. Someone's going to have to take on for the team. Ok, the person who can answer this mock interview question "the best" will have to run for Pres:

"So, madam, why do you want to run for President of the United States?"

I would like to run for President so I can pardon two turkeys every Thanksgiving!

Your turn!

Lol,
Well.... With those answers I do not think anyone will take us seriously. For the sake of the country I'll do the President thing, but maybe we can take turns shaking strangers hands and kissing babies, maybe like every 10 or so stranger or baby we switch off?

You beat me to conceding. Very well, madame future-president-nominee. I will be a VP worthy of Joe Biden's approval. lol.

We can have stamps with our lip prints on them and stamp babies. Then we can say how we're concerned for the baby's health and don't want to give it whooping cough. We're so considerate! lol. The rotation idea works also.

LMAO! I love your lip print stamp idea! There, I think we have figured it all out Tanj. The USA does not even know what is about to hit them.

LOL. We rock!! With Steve Colbert as our campagin manager we can get Michael Bay to do our commercials! I'm thinking unnecessary explosions going off in the background, I'm thinking sexy guys in suits as interns, I'm thinking us shooting zombies who each have signs that represent stuff we don't want. For example: zombie with "keep the Federal Reserve" sign...you get a bullet in the head. Zombie with "the US has unlimited funds" sign, you're going down! Let me stop before someone steals my freaking ideas!

Umm Tanj, are you sure you have never run for office before because those sound like amazing commercials that will surely win the people over and get us into the White House. Ok, in the background of all this zombie killing can we have Ron Paul (probably a cgi ron paul) ride by on a golden chariot and let him be the one to shoot the Fed Reserve zombie? I think it would mean so much to him.

We need to copyright this stuff! I am thinking tshirts that say "free the markets!" Ya know, instead of "Free Tibet" Idk if people will get it, but I think those would be great campaign tshirts or bumper stickers.

Lol about Ron Paul. Good thinking! I think we could get the real Ron Paul; he's living it up, enjoying retirement.

People love T-shirts.

Nola Lightman (Nola_Lightman) Hi all!

I'm Widow Dyer and I'm a writer working on publishing my first work. I love to read. And read. And read. ヅ Occasionally, I do write. (LOL!)

My favorite genres are paranormal romance, young adult romance, and urban fantasy. I absolutely LOOOVE to watch movies. I'm also TV show freak, but I keep that limited to mainly comedies like Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, etc., with one or two dramas.

Oh, I'm also a t-shirt fanatic. (And I'm not ashamed of it.) ヅ
