Spending time with Toddlers: Wagner Farm

Hi! Dominique Gibson is back with another post. Happy Friday for people who are living in the U.S. and for the rest of the world, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I just wanted to do a short post about our recent field trip the toddlers had on Wednesday, August 6th, 2021 at a farm called Wagner’s Farm in Glenview, Illinois. I was extremely proud of the parents dropping off their children early so that they could join us for the trip.

The trip itself was interesting and fun for the children. We first started our day with the children going to the park nearby where they slid down the slide with all of these metal bars on it, making for a very bumpy ride. There was another slide that slid down in a semi circle from top to bottom that the children enjoyed as well. Once the children played at the park, we then went on a tour to see the animals.

There were some children who were scared to see some of the animals while others were excited to see them. We also went on a tractor ride around the farm as well to discover more animals we normally wouldn’t see otherwise.

Overall, it was a pretty good day.

Helpful Tips for Authors:The Success of Self-publishing

Hi! Dominique Gibson is back with another post. To everyone in the U.S. happy Friday! For everyone else, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. So, I decided to pass on this information today about one author’s success about how he turned down a seven figure book deal so he can continue to publish the book himself. He also spent time talking with other writers and found out that being a New York Times bestselling author doesn’t always guarantee you will be given a lot of money when it comes to your advance by the publisher. He also started to realize that some of the things he noticed the publishers doing when it came to signing their authors were some of the things he was already doing himself.

I think that reading this should give all aspiring authors who want to go the self-publishing route the possibility of being successful without having to go the traditional publishing route. I’m pretty sure that if Hugh Howey can do it, so can any writer who wants to go at it alone.

Spending time with toddlers

Looking at the laybug
Water play

Hi! Dominique Gibson is back with another post. I know it’s been a while since I last posted on my blog but I have been super busy with everything that has been going on so my website took a bit of a hit. But I just thought that since today is Friday and I just didn’t want to talk about my book all day long, I decided to do a short post about my other line of work and what they have discovered lately.

The first picture I took was of a small ladybug they had found on the table outside on the playground. They looked at it and became so fascinated by it that they wanted to touch and play with it. We talked about the ladybug but reminded the children not to disturb it so that it could find his friends.

The next photo was of a small pool in the backyard. Weather permitting, the children had a “water play day” where the children splashed and played in the water outside. Some of the children had a blast while the others stood back and watched as the water sprayed the other children. The children has fun overall.

I guess this will be all for my post on how my day went with toddlers. I will probably do more posts this weekend about how everything else is going. See you soon.

Inspiration for future novels: The Mourning Dove?

Bird outside my window
Her babies she hatched
Empty nest

Hello! Dominique Gibson is back with another post. I meant to do this post as soon as I started taking pictures of this magnificent bird but I was so busy doing other things that I let it slip me by. Before I decided to delete it forever from my phone, I decided to share it on my website (and maybe a few other places as well) about this bird. So this bird had been sitting outside of my window a couple of weeks ago. I decided to take a picture and show it to the children in the classroom.

Just days after this bird sat outside of my window, I watched this bird again and saw that the bird had baby birds inside the nest! Every day when I got off of work, I would watch the window to see them grow. Two more weeks went by before I saw them growing up and eventually leave the nest. I still had the pictures in my phone so I decided to look them up. The results I got from Google was the mourning dove.

So, I decided to look it up and share the link with you on what this bird is and why I think they might be a perfect fit for a future novel. Enjoy!
