OK folks, here is where I'm going to put ideas for books. Short stories that could maybe do with tweaking a little.
Here is one for starters about a time travelling frog:-)
Once upon a time there was a frog called Bert. He was a good frog. He was green like mkost other frogs, but unlike some he could jump around in time as well as his pond. So he could go back and see his grandparents, great grandparents etc.
One day he decided to jump back in time as far as he could. It turns out that this was in the days before frogs. So, off he goes, travelling around from pond in the distant past looking at what was there. After a while he decides enough is enough and looks for something to eat. Aha! That large fly will do me he thinks. So he creeps along the edge of a pond towards the fly, then just as he is within reach of it, the fly takes off. Oh Bum! Thought the frog. So off he goes in search of another.
A few minutes later he finds one. So off he goes, creeping up on it and this time he gets it. "Very tasty" he says to himself. Must find another one. So off he goes in search of more. After a little while and 5 more flies he decides to have a nap under a leafy bush near the pond.
"Hey! Who are you?" said a little voice nearby. I am Bert the Frog he says. "Who are you and where are you?" asks Bert.
"I am round the other side of this bush and I am Ann the Salamander" said Ann salamander.
"Pleased to meet you" said Bert. "Shall we meet round your side or mine" he asked.
Let's meet in the middle" said Ann
And so they did. And they got on rather well. Bert told her about his time travels and Ann was impressed.
"I have not travelled in time. Could you take me with you?" she asked.
"I have not taken anyone with me before" said Bert. Let's try it and see. "Let's try to go forward an hour. Hold my hands and I will try it".
She held Bert's hands and he whisked them forward an hour. "Amazing!" he exclaimed. " I have never done that before and it has worked".
"Let's go forward to my time" said Bert. "OK" said Ann and off they went, into the future which was really Bert's present.
"Here We are" said Bert. My time. "Wow!" said Ann. "It is very different to my time". The landscape is so different. And look at that pond! It is so huge!".
"That is the pond where I live" said Bert. "Come and meet my friends". So he introduced Ann the Salamander to his friends Geoff, Harry, Georgina and Jim who are all frogs, and George, Mark and Fred who are all toads.
"Let's have a party" said Georgina, "To celebrate Bert bringing back a friend from the past!" and they all agreed, so it was party time at The Pond for all. Even the fish decided to come by and have a look. Even Ratty Roach came by but this time he did not moan about the celebrations as he normally did.
The party went on into the night until they were exhausted and decided it was time for some sleep. So they all went to sleep under Bert's bush until the song of the Blackbird woke them up.
OK, so it may not be much, maybe someone out there can take it and turn it into a masterpiece. If you can feel free to mention me:-)
