Storystorm 2023 Day 31: It’s Tammi Sauer’s Fave Season

Storystorm 2023 Day 31: It’s Tammi Sauer’s Fave Season

by Tammi Sauer

What is my favored component regarding January?

The cold? Nope.

The snow? Nope.

A month-long tornado?! DEFINITELY.

Storystorm is simply the press I require to produce a heap of photo publication concepts. A lot of my concepts will certainly be dreadful, however THAT’S O.K.. If I take care of to find up with also one Actually Great Suggestion, I call that a success.

One method to find up with a possibly Actually Great Suggestion is to begin with a personality.

A personality can be practically anything. A kid. A toaster oven. A yeti called Bob.

As Soon As you have a personality in mind, delicately ask that personality The Concern:

” Hey, chum. What’s troubling you?”

A lot of my publications star personalities that are troubled by something. I assume children like these publications and also the personalities in them since being troubled by something is a rather relatable experience.

In KNOCK KNOCK, shown by Man Francis, a bear called Harry is troubled by the reality his close friends maintain disrupting his effort at hibernation.

NO BUNNIES HERE Cover: full of bunnies in a field/wood, popping out everywhere, from behind letters, in trees, in holes, EVERYWHERE!

In NO RABBITS RIGHT HERE!, shown by Ross Burach, the major rabbit is troubled by the fear a wolf intends to swallow him and also his rabbit close friends all up.

MAKING A FRIEND Cover: Beaver in plaid coat and scarf rolling a large snowball.

In MAKING A PAL, shown by Alison Pal, Beaver is troubled by the reality he has trouble making a buddy.

NOT NOW COW Cover - a winter scene with a chicken and falling snow with Cow in summer attire and sunglasses

In NOT CURRENTLY, COW, shown by Troy Cummings, Fowl is troubled by the reality Cow can not hop on board with the periods.

*** Remember that not all major personalities will certainly have a trouble or a desire, however numerous do. ***

Currently, given that January and also Storystorm are ending, you could currently have an extremely large stack of concepts. Gold celebrity for you! However, I intend to test you to include simply a couple of even more to the mix. Possibly among these will certainly wind up being a Truly Great Suggestion.


  • Take down a checklist of 3 personalities.
  • Ask each of these personalities The Concern.

Additional Credit History:

Order a fresh set of publications from the book shop or collection. Focus on the major personality. Are any one of these major personalities taking care of a trouble or desiring something? Take down that issue or desire. Possibly a person desires a family pet squash. Possibly a person is a zombie that’s trying to find love. Possibly a person is an avocado having an existential situation. Analysis– and also evaluating!– other individuals’s publications are 2 fantastic means to motivate you to create publications of your very own.
