Random Favourites

Hello dear watchers! :wave: I have some news and I need your help: my best friend is going to have a baby :D Sadly, I am moving away, so I won't get to play much of a part in her baby's life :( I'm still determined to be favourite aunt in some capacity, so here's my plan:

My friend (and her family) are not very big readers. They'll enjoy a good book if you give it to them and ask for more, but never actually put in the leg work to find a good book. I've been her library for the last decade and I know when it comes to baby gifts, people will be thinking clothes or the like, but I'm thinking books and something to get the imagination going. I want to compile a book of stories and I want to make it special by putting it together myself rather than going to a store and buying the first fairytale book I see and I was hoping I could get some suggestions from you guys: What was your favourite story growing up? It could be fairytales, stories from your culture, a movie plot! - anything you can remember that inspired you and fuelled your imagination.

If you have any other baby-gift suggestions, I'm very much open to hearing them. Perhaps I'll make a gift basket sort of thing as a congratulations-and-I'm-sorry-I'm-leaving-and-won't-be-around-to-babysit

So thats me. Tell me about you guys. What's new? :D

I'm just another writer trying to improve :) I actually want to be a published author, but I wasn't sure that all the ideas I had bouncing around in my head were stories anyone would be interested in reading, so putting them on DA is sort of an experiment. It was a leap to put my work here and I'm glad I have, I've interacted with some very wonderful and helpful people because of it :D and I've also managed to finish an entire novel, so that is some Class A encouragement. Recently I have decided to give back to this lovely community by way of leaving very long, very crazy (in my opinion at least) feedback comments on things I like and I just can't keep quiet about how lovely it is. So, if you want someone to give you an honest impression of your work (if you're a writer, you'll get much more detail because I love reading) just drop me a line and I'll try to be as helpful as I can :XD:

As of 14th June 2013, I am an Archaeologist
On 14th October 2014, I got my Masters degree in Landscape Archaeology :D

My number one favourite person on this site is my younger sister :iconmariamukaji: she is the sweetest person I will ever know and she's an inspiration and I'm too much of a bad influence on her because she's just as sarcastic as me. She is also an incredible artist and I am so proud of her.

Hey! :rose:

I wanted to drop by personally to say thanks for joining TheWritePlace! I’m excited that people seem enthusiastic about it :giggle: If you wanna know more about our group check out Our Rules (there aren’t many and they’re all mostly common sense to me!) or just ask! If you fancy getting more involved we do have positions open which you can find out about here. For now I hope you enjoy the group and find it helpful. If you have ideas on how to make it more useful, suggestions, feedback, anything, just let us know - and when our chatroom #TheWritePlace officially launches (soon) I hope to see you in there too :love:

- Kate :heart:
