Finlay's Class

I went to speak about writing to Finlay's second grade class yesterday. It was fun. I read them my favorite book on writing, "Arthur Writes a Story" by Marc Brown. Then I talked about how to get ideas (use your imagination, ask "what if?"), and the difference between fiction and non-fiction. They had written down some questions for me like what kind of stories I write, the tools I use for writing, and how books get put together (didn't know the answer to that one), and if I got mad when someone says they don't like my stories. (Sad, maybe. Not mad.) All in all, it was fun to talk to them about what I love. It made my day when his teacher, Mrs. Mecham, said she'd heard that I was really good. I don't know where she heard it, except maybe from Fin. :)

You amaze me! When/How do you find time to write? I would love to start writing again, but I don't know where I'd pull the time. Maybe if I didn't spend so much time commenting on blogs and sending e-mails...! I do enjoy it so much though.
