I’m giving my first writing seminar!
Ok, so it’s to a class of second graders – what, you were expecting Harvard? (I’m not even sure if Harvard has a creative writing program.)
Later this fall, I’ll be stopping by Worm Burner’s class to talk about writing and publishing a book. Well, Mighty Mite got wind of this, and being the proactive Mite that he is, told his teacher his mom is an author and that she should come talk to his class. Mighty Mite is 7 years old, cute as a button, and can get away with stuff like that. (I am SO in trouble when he becomes a teenager.)
Of course, you can’t just talk to one class of 2nd graders, you must talk to all three classes of 2nd graders. (Please, twist my arm some more.)
So today I’m teaching about 70 second graders about descriptive word choices and how an author goes about getting a book published.
Wish me luck!
