To celebrate the new look and name of this blog, (and I want to thank +Eunice Charlton Trujillo for helping me improve it) I decided to post another story this morning. I hope you like it.
What More Could a Writer Want?
I have read this story to countless children at countless schools, and it's always such fun. As the suspense grows, they become more and more involved, and by the time they hear the word "puppy," they are so sure they know what happens next I'm likely to hear a chorus of sweet "Aw's," almost as if they can see the puppy before them. But then....such disappointment, indignation, incredulity!
A quick page turn, and the ending brings relief. They laugh, they applaud, they draw pictures to illustrate the story and tell me they can't wait until it's a book. Alas, I fear that's not to be. But maybe there's a child in your life, or a child in you, who would like some story-fun for sunshine on this gray January morning. Happy reading, and thank you again for visiting.
