I had a great time talking to four classes at Malcolm Elementary about writing last week. So bright! There were a couple of great questions.

  • One fourth grade girl assumed I was famous (I had after all written two books). She wanted to know if I knew J. K. Rowling. I wish!
  • Another fourth grader confessed she wanted to be a writer, but was worried because she had so many unfinished stories. I laughed. Every writer I know has a bucket of unfinished stories. I told her what another writer told me. Pick one. Commit to it. No matter what, finish it. Then move onto the next.

What a great, energizing experience!
