Query Spark: Though the regular calendar is screaming back-to-school, many publications have editorial calendars with spring break slots to fill. think road trips, boredom busters and rainy day fun.

Character Spark: This month’s character inspiration comes from K.T. Tunstall’s song, “Suddenly I See” from the album, Eye to the Telescope:

  “She fills up every corner like she’s born in black and white.”

Story Spark:  Your main character found a discarded shopping list. The list spells trouble. You decide what’s on the list and how it complicates the character’s life.

Setting Spark: Write a whole story set in a waiting room.
