In the last few years, with the generous help the Kent County Public Library, which hosts the support group, I have had the honor of being a mentor for young writers.
Unfortunately, due to COVID, the library has had to suspend our meetings for the time being. But my kids aren’t daunted, they are still writing!
This morning I received an email from one of the brilliant young people in the group to tell me she has finished the novel she was working on. It is 77k words, and she wanted advice on how to edit. This lovely, intelligent young lady has finished a 77k novel and if my memory serves me correctly, she’s only thirteen. THIRTEEN!
I cannot wait until we resume meeting – I miss all my kids, but I need to give this girl a HUG!!!
