Plots for Children’s Stories

My latest book of plots for children’s stories has just been published. If you want to write short stories for children but feel creatively stifled why not re-purpose some classic public domain?

If you want to read all about what public domain is and how to know if a book is free from copyright then have a look at Writing Children’s Stories: Unique method using public domain classics for inspiration’.

But, if you just want to get started my books of plots provides you guaranteed public domain material to get you started.

These plots must not be published as-is. What you need to do is use each plot as the framework for a new story that comes from your own ideas. You can even combined multiple plots to develop stories that really stretch the imagination. I myself want to write a story that has Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother escaping the wolf by climbing up Jack’s Beanstalk. But that’s for another day.
Check out Volume 2 of my plots right here:

Children's Story Ideas Volume II


I am busy working on Volume II of Children’s Story Ideas. Watch this space for updates.

The ebook cover is already done! Yeah.  Here it is. Drop me a line and let me know what you think, I would love to hear your thoughts. I love the orange color, it reminds me of Halloween and goblins and witches.



I am thrilled to announce that my latest book   ‘Children’s Story Ideas: 10 short story plots’ is now online and available at Amazon Kindle at the link below.

I have put together 10 plots from classic children’s stories, many of which I remember reading, or being read to me as a small child. By removing the titles and names of characters you are free to let your creative writing skills pour forth and name the story as you wish. While you may undoubtedly recognize the story, this is your opportunity to create something new and unique using key elements from the plots.

These are not to be used as-is but to be re-purposed into something new that you would be proud to call your own. If you haven’t started publishing yet because you couldn’t find the right idea, or couldn’t pull forth your creative spark, now’s the time to get started.

This book is geared towards those who

  • don’t have time to do research
  • don’t like doing research
  • are not sure they have sourced an original copy of a public domain story

Cover images are not representative of stories in the book, but are original children’s story images in the public domain.

This is the first in a series of plots for children’s stories; adult story plots are in the works.

I would love to hear what you create! Please keep me posted and drop me a line from time to time with information about the books and short stories you create.
