Last week my tutoring students inspired me to write. The perfectionist in me kept me from doing anything about it for a while. The part that says “I am enough” is now getting this down “on paper.”
It all started with one of my students accidentally reading “snailboat” for “sailboat.” Genius!
I quickly came up with this:
“Why ride in a sailboat
When you could ride a snailboat!”
Fun with inventive compound words! Such potential!
Another student began some work with fiction writing. He’s creating a fantasy/sci-fi/historical fiction work. It already sounds great. I found an article on super young authors, which we both found inspiring, though he was only impressed with the bestselling ones!
Finally, a new student told me the entire synopsis of a fantasy piece that she has already started writing. She plans on finishing it in high school. (She’s in elementary school now.) I told her about the young authors article. But she still insists it will be best that way. . .
I had a couple of other thoughts, but I have a cat on my foot, and I’m about to turn into a sweet potato, anyway, and so I remind myself “I am enough. It is enough.” And I bid you all good night. 🙂
