There’s a lot of fancy advice about writing.
But I like my Sonia’s point of view, regarding her latest chapter book…
“Why do they keep telling me what’s going to happen before it does? The kids say stuff and then you just KNOW what’s going to happen. I want to figure it out!”
Ah, the child likes subtlety. And I don’t even subject her to daily readings of Kooser.
