Awesome Group!

I was so pleased yesterday to receive a card in the mail signed by the students from Edmond North Creative Writing Class.  They continue to impress! What an awesome group of students.  I wish only the best for them in their writing careers! Oh yes, the Starbucks card they sent was pretty cool too!

Edmond North Creative Writing Class

I visited the creative writing class at Edmond North today to share what I have learned over the past year with publishing my first children's book.  There was a group of about 30 students; many aspire to become published authors (some children's authors, some novels, some illustrators, and even a novel/movie!) Everyone had great questions for me and I enjoyed visiting them.  They have been working on children's books and I got to see a few.  It's amazing the talent they have and should have no problem achieving their goals.  I look forward to seeing their names in the headlines some day!  Mrs. Spencer, you should be proud!

Creative Writing Class

I will be speaking with Mrs. Spencer's creative writing class at Edmond North High School this Thursday.  They are all working on writing children's books.  I plan to share with them the things I've learned over the past year.  I wish I'd had someone to talk with a year ago instead of learning as I go. I hope to be able to answer all of their questions.  I will admit though, I've never spoken with a high school group, so I am a little nervous!
