Picking Out a Dragon
Sometimes when I read a paper cut idea will pop into my head that relates to the story I am reading. This especially happens when I am reading children's literature. I haven't ever followed through with those ideas until now. This past week I randomly pulled a book off the shelves at my local library and brought it home. It was "How to Train Your Dragon" by Cressida Cowell. It was a funny little book about Vikings and dragons. The above cut is what popped into my head at the beginning of the book as the young hero must crawl into a cave full of sleeping dragons, where he must snatch one and take it back his village to train. This was fun. I think the next time I feel inspired by a children's book, I'll follow thru.
