My oldest wants to be a writer and illustrator when she gets older. You can often find her throughout the day with some writing/drawing instrument in her hand. One of her favorite mediums lately has been on the computer. She loves to type and mess around creating pictures. She has asked me about publishing stories and I told her a good way to start is by "publishing" them for others to see in things like our homeschool groups student newsletter for practice. I told her it's a good way to hone her craft before asking people to pay for it.
She created the following and asked if I'd put it on my blog. She wants her own blog where she can share her creations. While looking over my shoulder at a 10 year olds blog I was looking at today said, "Maybe I can start a blog for my birthday." She turns 10 in 22 days. Dh and I have 22 days in which to decide, should we let her or shouldn't we. LOL So, until we relent and let her have her own blog, I've told her I'll gladly post what she'd like to share.
