From Crayons to Novels.

She is getting pubished! Mini flew off of the school bus yesterday screaming with excitement and beaming ear to ear. Her smile so big and bright I was briefly distracted from what she was trying to tell me. It was all one continuous sentence.....perhaps even one long long word. She didn't even stop for a breath as I watched her pale ivory skin gradually get redder and redder. It wasn't from the cold winter air. She was running out of air. *Breath Mini* It was from adrenaline. She had an abundance. And as she began to make sense and the words slowed down to an actual sentence, I too began to feel my heart beat off of the chart. 

We have always taught and instilled in to Mini to write her thoughts, ideas, stories, and the like. Journal after journal for the past 11 years, yes, as soon as she was old enough to hold a crayola, we captured many a Picasso worthy artwork.

Mini penned a wonderful poem. Her teacher entered her into a National Poetry Contest. She won! Received her officially letter, certificate, and "you've been published" notice.

Last evening I filled out all of the legal paperwork involved for the publisher to print her poem in the book. We also had the opportunity to purchase extra books if we wish at a great price.

Mini has been asked to be a judge for other Children poems that were entered and to be included in this publication.

And to think just yesterday.......she was still coloring!

That is such a cool accomplishment :D At such a young age too, it can only fuel how talented she already is :)

You all must be thrilled, exciting stuff :)

thank you snazzy! we are going to look into sharing some of her other pieces. we have short stories, poems, some thick enough to be a book! so we'll let her decide since most of it is personal journal writing and such.
