During the last week of October, I spoke to a second grade class about writing. The kids amazed me! One child asked, but not in so many words, if I ever had writers block. If I did, he wanted to know how I dealt with it. The class blew me away! They knew so much about writing.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, because the kids were so attentive and interested.
Wow, 2012 already. I’m working hard on a 2012 sequel to Blinded by the Sight. Eight chapters and counting. For those of you wondering what is going to happen to Pete Culnane, he’s still trying to decide. Happy belated New Year!
