Couldn’t go to bed tonight without making note of a special experience I had today. A teacher friend sent me a story written by one of her students and said this aspiring writer wanted to meet a real author. Imagine that–me, a real author! I love this!
Anyway, teacher and student came by today, and what a wonderful experience it was. This young woman shares my love for fantasy and is well into her first novel. I don’t want to give away the plot, but I must say that she has a true gift for character and description. She is so young, but she can already naturally put words together in a way that it has taken me years to learn.
Her perception, perspective and enthusiasm brought me tremendous joy. The next generation is not the wasteland the news would have us believe. These guys are going to be great. .
