Ben came home from school the other day with notebook paper shoved into his Angry Birds backpack-
Excitedly, he showcased his work of art; a story he’d written entitled “Minecraft: The Search For The Ender Dragon”.
You need to realize just how much this touched me. I was writing stories of my own at his age. To know that my 7 year old enjoys writing as much as I did and still do is amazing.
I decided to share this fact with Ben.
“Hey Ben- you know, I’m a writer, too.”
His response: “Oh. Ok.”
“No really Ben. I write stories and I have a blog.”
Crickets. Nothing but crickets.
Just remember your old mom when you are a famous author, OK?
