The apple doesn't fall far from the tree?

So yesterday I get back from the grocery store and the six year old kidlet is hard at work. On what? A book. *beams*.

She illustrated it and wrote dialogue in the pictures. It turned into about 10 pages, a whole little story. Starts off with a couple getting married. They have a baby. LOL I've always been honest with her as to where babies come from...so the picture is a bit graphic.

LOL it has romance. The couple get married. There's a conflict. The house burns down. There's a resolution. They get a new house complete with pool and hot tub.

I love her attention to detail. The tights on the women getting married have designs on them. There is a dress with flowers on it.

I think I have a budding artist and who knows, maybe a budding author in the house *grins*. She was very proud that she'd written a book just like Mommy.

I read their workshop done by Sasha White on love scenes. It was good. I've read back through their Point of View workshop. Great stuff and good people there.

That's so cute about your daughter's book! I love her ending with the pool and hot tub, LOL. That is a neat keepsake to save--if she become an author when she grows up, it would really be a cool thing--her first book!

My nephew and his buddy wrote a super hero adventure 'book' when they were in 3rd or 4th grade. A.J. wrote most of the text with his friend 'illustrating'. A.J. also had the character's pictures making smart aleck comments in little dialogue balloons. A year or so ago, his teacher nominated his prose/poem for some scholastic poetry collection and it was included. Beam away, Mechele. You have every right to be proud.
