On Tuesday I’ll have the pleasure of visiting a Springfield school to talk to 1st grade classes. They are studying about writers and it turns out I’m one. The challenge will be to find concrete explanations to fit their world of experience. If anyone wants to share a thought or quote, I’ll work them into my time with the kids.
Maybe I should start a list. The reason why I love being a writer is ____. The kids might like that and their teachers can make copies for their work folders to keep and remember.
