I was very happy to be invited to speak at Young Author’s Day at a local elementary school. Young Author’s is close to my heart because it was my favorite thing about elementary school. Here it is much different than when I was in elementary school. They don’t spend a month having every child craft a story, but I am happy that they are still encouraging kids to write.
Another elementary school is having their Young Author’s Day next Friday, and they have asked me to come and talk about writing and goals.
There is one advantage to elementary school (as opposed to high school visits) …. The younger kids always have LOTS of questions.
