More from the author-in-residence

I was going to write about raising sons, but I have Christmas decorations to get out so I don't want to spend eons on this here blog.  So raising sons will have to come later.

N continues to write like crazy...jotting notes, sending letters to cousins and friends.  And over the long Thanksgiving weekend she wrote a couple stories.  Nothing Newbery Medal worthy, but cute nonetheless.

But first, a journal entry I found.....

Dear journal
I wish I could right in cersive when im 7 or 8 And I want too get my ears pearsed  Thank you!

And now......the short, short stories of NGL:

The magic journal  
(This is an original story. Any similarities to the dvd The Barbie Diaries are purely coincidental.)

Oce there was a girl named Makenzie  She had a journal.  She thoght it was magic
So she took it too school and she asked her teacher "every time I right in this it happens"  Why?
And she figured out is was magic
The end.

The super-sour lenonade  
(This is an original story.  Any similarities to Olivia Opens a Lemonade Stand by Kama Einhorn are purely coincidental.)

One day a kitty named Princess opened a lemonade stand so her friends could not get any warmer and the color was pink and when she tried it she said "it's sour!"
And all she had ta-doo was putt some ice and water in.

I love that she thanks her journal for its attention!

And as for the stories...didn't I learn something in college about there being only 3 possible plot lines for fiction - man vs. man, man vs. self, and man vs. nature? So when you get right down to it, it's hard to write an original story, daggonit. Let's give the girl credit for using original spelling, at least. ;-)
