Will my children be writers?<< All Articles
One of the questions I am often asked is if any of my children hope to be writers. Each of our children are creative and talented and they could be authors, but none of them have the passion for it. However, one of my grandchildren shows all the signs of growing up to write. James was eight when his school was vandalized. He was deeply upset and did what is instinctive to a writer. He wrote a fictional story in which he was instrumental in finding those responsible and seeing them arrested. In the last line of his story he wrote, “And when they got out of jail they were too old for bingo.” I have to say, that’s darn good writing.
