OMG‚ I'm so excited about this idea, this week's mission:
We're going to write a children's book together!
I've been tossing around the idea of a book called "Imagine Nation" for a while. Imagine Nation is an amazing place to live because when you imagine something good/cool/wonderful/revolutionary -- poof -- it comes to be! (Fortunately for all residents, if someone accidentally (or maliciously) imagines something NOT good, it simply won't happen.)
I'm going to tell you a few of the ideas I have for the book/story in a moment, and then in the comment section to your left, I invite you all to share your ideas big and small! Then I will craft this into an actual children's book! And every single one of us will be the authors! (and credited as such).
I'm not sure yet if this would be something I would take to one of my editors/publishers, or if we should self-publish this on Lulu.com. Also not sure about illustrating: one of the illustrators I currently work with? One of you, someone who's looking to break into the business? The other undecided detail is proceeds: donate to charity? Set up a Mission Amy K.R. fund that we use for subsequent projects and missions? Start a scholarship fund? I'm open to your thoughts on these topics but I think I'm getting ahead of myself. (Can you tell I'm excited?)
