One of My Favorite Writing Things to Do
(Everyone was following along on the handouts I gave them about Simple Editing Tips.)
I love going to a school class room and talking to kids about writing. I've gone to high schools, grammar schools, and yesterday to talk with 7th and 8th graders.
This was one of the most attentive and interested group of kids I've visited with, I say visited, because though I shared some brief editing tips, they asked great questions. Questions makes a session like this not only more enjoyable for them but also for me.
This was a country school--and I mean way out in the country. Took about 40 minutes to get there from my house.
I know the teacher, though it's been a long time since I've seen her.
Guess they enjoyed the visit, because I've been asked to come back near the end of the year. The plan is to put together a mystery. That will be fun!
I have no idea what I was looking for, but it didn't stop the kids from being attentive. I had a great time and I think they did too.
