Writing

    Writing has always been an important part of my life.  I have stacks of stories dating back to my earliest days of writing in elementary school.    
    "Smartypants" is an example of one of my attempts at writing humorous short stories.  It was written when I was in 8th grade.  Notice the use of adjectives as I describe Pandora.  Instead of just telling the color of her hair and eyes I
describe the length of her hair and the mischief that was brewing in her eyes.  As you craft your own stories take time to create a story web and build out your ideas.  Adjectives are one of the best ways to paint a picture with words.  Help your readers "see" your characters and settings.  .  
    Your dream may not be to write a book to be published.  However, both as a student and  an adult you will have to write essays, stories, and reports.  Always remember to write with your reader in mind.
