Query Spark: Love is in the air in August. If the publication you are pitching has a six-month lead time, now is the time to think about candy and flowers and Valentine’s day.

Character Spark: Write about someone with an unusual hobby.

Story Spark: Write about a case of mistaken identity.

Setting Spark: In honor of back-to-school season, how about using a classroom or school as the setting of your next tale?
