I (sometimes) call myself Mr. Pondersome. I'm a rather wordy, weirdy person. I say hullo a lot. I write a lot more. While you're here, why not give some of it a read?

"Idea" (a.k.a. Mr. Pondersome's Arguably Convoluted Attempt to Appeal to the Toddler Demographic)

Hullo all,

Please pardon my tardiness; I've been rather busy again. Nevertheless I'm still feeling particularly experimental in the creativity department and so have composed (or at least attempted to compose) a short children's story. I've kept it short for two good reasons:
1. I'm trying to write for 2-3 year old children, an audience whom lenghty plot and detailed character development would be wasted upon.
2. I'm dealing with a rather big abstract issue. To go beyond a seven-word sentence would make matters even more complicated.

The basis of this story is 'What is an Idea'? Now I realise that even fully-grown-up intellectuals aren't exactly sure what the answer to that question is, but I thought I'd give it a crack. Just for the kids.
The story itself will be broken down into eight pictorial blank-background squares and nearly all the illustrated features were computer-drawn by me (I think you'll be able to spot which are Clipart's fine handiwork). I keep the sentences big, short and, wherever possible, colourful. I shall submit all eight individually as short blog posts in their own right as soon as possible.
Finally, before you read them, I want to stress that I am by no means a children's writer and that this is purely an experiment to test my own writing capabilities. If you do have any criticisms, do try to make the constructive and not soul-destroying, eh?

Anyhoo, have fun, kiddies!!! :D.
