I met another young writer at the Catholic Homeschoolers of Georgia Conference: Selah, age 9. Selah was hard at work for over 30 minutes composing a fictional narrative. The magnetic poetry didn’t provide her with all the words she needed, so she started using the marker. Very resourceful!
When her family said it was time to go home, Selah said, “But I can’t. I need to finish my story.” (The mark of a true artist!) Her family kindly obliged while she added those finishing touches. In the end, it was something she could be proud of.
Here it is if you’d like to read her story. By the way, I was wondering where she got her writing chops, until her mom told me about her blog: Use Your Momstinct. It’s pretty cool. You should check it out!
