I have an idea! Easily my four favorite words. Could there be anything more exhilarating than a fresh idea?
Everything starts with an idea. Have you noticed this in your life? Your favorite moments, places, and discoveries all came from an idea – what was it?
Whether they’re teeny, tiny or bold and boisterous, add a dash of curiosity and a splash of courage, and any idea can lead to a grand adventure. That’s exactly what our friend Zelda is about to discover.
Zelda, night witch of the western horizon and wishing witch in training, was just chosen to ring the bell on the wishing well this Wish Night. It’s a dream come true! But there’s a problem: she’s afraid of the dark (and dragons and trolls and everything else she’ll need to encounter to ring that bell). Soon, everyone will find out.
Zelda has an idea that she hopes will keep her secret safe. That idea takes her on an adventure that will change everything.
Zelda’s story has made me think a lot about the way we present ourselves to others and the surprising ways we learn to embrace who we really are. Even after months of exploring Zelda and her world, I’m still discovering more about her story and what I can learn from it. I hope her story will spark new ideas for you too.
The first illustrations are coming together, and it’s a joy to see Zelda’s world come to life. I’ll pop in with updates along the way (especially the ones with dragons!).
Until then, have a conversation about ideas, curiosity, courage, and learning who you are with the loves in your life. You never know what ideas will grow from it.
