    I’m kinda have writers block and need help coming up with story ideas. Can someone help me?
    I already have the characters and could describe them. I’ll put a few of the main characters up.

    Kaila Brink- Age 11, 12, or 13. I’m not sure about her age since she would look the same at all ages. If shes eleven then she’d be more innocent but if she was 13 she could have a larger viewpoint of the world. I’m sorta stuck here also since she is the Most main character! She has a spunky attitude, but shies away from most people. She is tiny(4’5) But has a lot of energy. She is very protective of her friends and family.

    Canan Brink- Age : 2 years younger than Kaila. Her character would change with age too. If she is older she would be more obnoxious and bratty but if she was little she could be mean-spirited but naive, She is the younger sister who loves to snoop around and get into her sister’s business.

    Ali Ondera- Same age as Kaila; She is the nice friend who does barely anything wrong. Shae is very forgetful and clumsy. She is pretty well grounded, but can have her drama moments. She is one of the two people Kaila trusts.

    These are just 3 characters. There are a lot more. I just need a story to put them in. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    you know your characters best so you probably know what situations would challenge them or what . to combat writers block I find walking my dog along the beach really helps . but in more direct response to your question have them doing what happening in your life at the moment maybe Christmas or school exams or camping or something more extreme don’t be afraid to exaggerate it . but drawing on life is easiest because its what you know

    Poor Kaila! She gets beat up by kids 2 years younger than her! This is because she is so small, even smaller than Nate.

    No colour? And Gramps says it so matter of factly, too. Let him have a dog. Looking after pets is a sacrifice parents make for their children. Pets give so much and ask for so little. Besides, they can be excellent entertainment. Like rapping on the wall and asking the dog “Who’s there?” Or a gob of peanut butter on the roof on its mouth.

    Well,I’m no writer,but how about: a fantasy-adventure story about a bunch of outcast kids whose seemingly negative traits get used for positive means,which help them learn their worth and to learn to function positively in the Real World? Hopefully,that’ll help.

    1st, 2nd and 3rd; and nothing of import in any one of them.
    A statement of no import
    A meandering plea AND
    An echo of the strip!

    Maybe the “colors-the-strip-crew” took off for Christmas day: thus 2-day’s “bleached-out” strip! Orrrrrrrrrrrrr…….lightning is striking twice!! Today’s not in color, AND Marty’s dad is weighing in, finally, on the dog-for-Christmas issue!!

    Must be some sort of glitch on the website today, but the traditionalist in me loves seeing the strip in glorious black and white!
