Why I Write for Children

"No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness
and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every
true education should be to unlock that treasure."
~Emma Goldman~

Jump Start

Like a car whose battery has died I need a jump start for my writing. So I've just entered the Writer's Weekly 24-hour Short Story Contest which starts this Saturday. With the temperatures reaching over 100 this weekend, it's the perfect way to keep cool and be creative.

In case you'd like to check it out: http://www.writersweekly.com/misc/contest.php

Best of luck!

Writing as a way of relating to others

"Writing is one of the major means for anybody to find fulfillment and satisfaction. You can lose your job, friends, but writing is something you can completely own."
Unoma Azuah, author of "Sky-High Flames"
