  1. I think one of the lost arts is hand-writing thank you notes, or any letter for that matter. It’s such a joy when a student proudly holds up their writing piece and exclaims ‘look what I’ve done!’ or ‘I can’t wait to give this to so-and-so!’

  2. Don’t forget the wonderful National Novel Writing Month’s Young Writers Program! ywp.nanowrimo.org. Can’t say enough about this resource!

      1. Yes I have Melissa! My daughter started participating in National Novel Writing Month 2 years ago when she was 6. She wrote her first book that year – a picture book, and followed up last year with a chapter book. She’s hooked now, selling and promoting her books. She’s even doing a series of 2 minute films in which she talks about the craft of writing (to be released at the end of this month). You can check out what she’s doing at http://www.evaridenhour.com. Really, National Novel Writing Month has changed her life. Good folks over there, producing outrageously good materials.
