    Ever heard of the peanut gallery?  It was a nickname for the cheapest seats in the theater; the people sitting there were known to heckle quite loudly.   The least expensive snack served at the theater would often be peanuts and, you guessed it, those rowdy people would sometimes throw peanuts at the performers on stage to show their disapproval.

    You guys are our peanut gallery.

    I want, and NEED, you to ask questions of your classmates about this short story creation.  By asking questions, you will help other students.  By getting answers, you will help yourself.  We have some great writers, use their ideas to make your ideas better.  You don't have to use anybody's ideas, but ask away.  This discussion board is for you to ask and answer questions.

    What might those questions look like?  Here are some examples of questions I hope to see:

    My story has a nervous boy, but I need a name for him.  Any ideas?

    What rhymes with turkey?

    What is a gross food you've seen on a Thanksgiving table?

    Should I have my turkey grow fangs or long claws?  Or both?

    How can I have my turkey drive a bus and have it be believable?
