Time For...


Imagine. You don't need anything except your brain to conjure up a bit of fun. Our ability to dream up stories is amazing, and extremely entertaining. Go with the flow of your ideas, and allow the play. Enjoy being yourself!


Go with the flow~~~
"Feeling bored? Don't know what to do? Look around, you'll find a clue."


If you're a voracious bookworm on the hunt for a good books to devour, this is the perfect spot to find the delicious words you're craving. Lizzy and Fairday have reviewed tons of books and interviewed many authors. You'll get some great ideas for your next read and find out the story behind the story from its creator! 

Go get your fill. 
Drawing is brilliant. You can go anywhere in your mind and bring the scene to life on paper. Nothing whisks me away like dreaming up scenes in pencil. If you love to draw and create, visit the post for ideas and inspiration. 
Me drawing myself, drawing myself

Pick up a pencil.

Love to write? Constantly creating stories? If you're looking for writing tips and information about how to pursue publishing a book traditionally or indie, visit the post for articles about our journey writing the Secret Files of Fairday Morrow and Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library. Writing is a wild ride!
Put on your writing pants.


Take A Trip To Imagination
Short stories/ creative sojourns





Looking for something fun to do?
Try a helping of Bookworm Stew!

The recipe calls for the following things: a bowl, some letters, and a bell that rings. A spoon and a sparkle are needed as well. When stirred up right, they'll cast their spell. *Whatever you use will work out fine, as long as you follow along each line.  

In a pot, pour some water
Add in any flavor color 
Stir three times, then once more 
Go back again- this time four 
Now, get your letters and toss them in
Set your thoughts on a whistling wind
Watch the brew spin round and round
Then ring a bell to add in sound 
Now just wait, and you shall see
What the story is bound to be 

     ✭✭✭  

Did words appear? What do they say? 
String them together, and it's the soup of the day! 

*Stir again whenever you wish, but remember, you never know what's in this dish!


To our readers, we hope you are safe and well. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. 
We love to hear from you! 💗
~ Jess, Stephanie, and the whole gang

  4. Hi Jess and steph - wonderful to read and to see what you've created for us ... your stories are brilliant, but I particularly love Jess' art work - amazing talent that may not be the way people expect ... but honestly it's way better to be unique - and you two have a great partnership. Take care and go well ... Hilary
