Saturday considerations

Am thinking of doing a middle-grade book based on the adventures of the Grammarian. 30-40K max, written to be appropriate for 9-12 year olds.

This is a nutty, lunatic idea, but I can't shake the feeling that it isn't necessarily a BAD idea.

  1. In no way is it a bad idea. There have been far greater sins committed against young people in the name of "edu-tainment" before now. Why not give it a go?

  2. I think it's a great idea Tony. I'd definitely buy it for my kids.

  3. It's a super idea! Really cool! Go, go, go!

  4. Thanks, guys! The more I think about it, this idea remains no less lunatic, but becomes increasingly feasible.

    I almost always write hard-hitting stuff for adults. Considering this as a project is requiring some reorientation of mental perspectives, let me tell you.

  5. If this idea can work (and I believe it can), then you are the one to do it Tony!
