    In today’s summer bonus episode, Lee visits a new part of the ship and makes a clever new friend who introduces two lesson plans that parents and teachers can use to help kids write awesome stories while they listen to the Story Pirates Podcast! “Characters With Big Dreams” will help writers create a character as spectacularly ambitious as Glitter, the guitar playing horse in the song “Nothing Is Impossible” (found in episode 12) and “Make Your Problem Huge” will help writers create high stakes problems for their characters to solve, like in the story “Triple Power” (included in this episode).
