Designing a board game has been a refreshing distraction while working on the ChuChu Chicken & Pedro the Goat stories.
Three of the five books are written with the first two being in the editor’s hands and the first with the illustrator.
For those times that I need a break from the PC, heading over to the game lab (the dining room table – hopefully without the oh-so-helpful Bella the cat) is a refreshing break. Playing with dice, paper, and scissors isn’t just a break from technology but also good for the soul.
The children’s books certainly tap into my inner child but the game and its pieces lets that inner child play with something tangible.
It’s also planted the seed that maybe I could make a ChuChu & Pedro board game for little ones!
