The Children of Virture and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi is the top book on my 2020 reading list. It’s been a while since I read Children of Blood and Bone so I decided to reread book one first.
Children of Blood and Bone is a fantasy book set in Africa, during a time when magic has vanished and the people who use to wield it, were either killed or became oppressed. Zélie, the book’s protagonist is a rebel. You learn this about her nature as soon as you open the book. She’s a fighter and when the opportunity arises to fight back against her oppressors and return magic back to her people Zélie decides to fight.
I’m not sure what else is on my list. I definitely want to check out other series that I started. I would love to read the second book in the book had zombies and is set during Civil War times. In this series young slave girls are zombie killers.
I as feeling sick that day, everyone was. There got to be so many kids out of school that they decided to close school. Teachers posted our work online and set online classes. It was really weird and I hated it.
The school had already given up all laptops so no one could make up a excuse of not having what they needed to do the work. Older people were fine but kids got sick….
What happens next? Does the illness create special powers in the kids? Where did the virus come from? Let your imagination guide you. Be creative and have some fun.
One of my students handed me sniveled up oak leaf. I looked at the brown leaf with its crisp edges and how it bent over like an old man with its arms extended toward me. The leaf was bent over with age. Soon it would dry up and be no more.

There are some great books for artist. The Artist Way by Julie Cameron has a ton of exercises that helps you become creative. It’s a 12 week journey to help you get unblocked when you can’t think creatively.
Here’s one of my creative exercises. Look out the first window that’s near you. Describe the world outside the window. Make each person you see a character in your story. Tell us what they want and what their “issue” is.
Now tell me about your story’s protagonist. You can even choose tell the story fro the perspective of a character that is looking out the window. Maybe it’s a world she doesn’t belong in it’s all up to you.
Be creative and have some fun.
The setting of a story tells us so much about the characters’ world and what they will face on their journey. Write a story about one of your favorite places and twist the story and make it a nightmare for your character.
I love the beach. Here’s my start.
Kia stood on the shore and looked as the waves rolled to the shore. It was a perfect day she swam all day. And now the sun was setting. Here, she didn’t have to deal with the fact that her best friend was now dating her boyfirend. She didn’t have to deal with the fact that her parants were getting divorced or that she had to make the decision on which parent she wanted to live with.
As Kia looked at the water something caught her eye. It was a creature that lloked like her but where feet would be was a tail. The creature moved quickly and grabbed her by the arm as she tried to run. Kia tried to fight but the creature was too strong. It pulled her into the water and into the bell of the ocean.
