NaNoWriMo 2014: Day 12 – 0

I had stayed up so late on the 11th, that I just didn’t have the energy left in me to write on the 12th. That’s okay though, because I recruited some new writers to the fold 🙂

Grayson, 7, wrote four sentences on his own. He only asked for help to spell a couple of words. He’s telling the story of Zack, who spotted a dragon and it leads him to the “Sea of Monsters” (which he wants to clear up right now that it is not the same Sea of Monsters of Percy Jackson fame…)

Guenevere, 10, wrote a full paragraph by hand to the tune of 110 words or so. She worked independently and already has a compelling beginning with two girls who are on their way home.

Abigail, 12, wrote 400 words on her own. I haven’t seen the story, but I’m looking forward to hearing about it.

So no, I didn’t write yesterday, but very proud of the kids who are joining me in the journey.

    It’s so satisfying to see the results of children writing. They write with more freedom than adults. They don’t sensor, and aren’t intimidated by their own creativity. They are honest. 🙂 I agree you had a day of accomplishments. Well done!

      You would think they aren’t intimidated by their own creativity, but Guenevere spent a good bit of time fussing over the first sentence in order to “make it interesting.”

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Noah’s contribution to my story was the anthropomorphic mouse getting stuck in a seat. He suggested his foot being stuck but I had him fall between the back and the seat because it is designed for larger animals.

      That kid – giving you ideas. Well tell him he needs to write his own book! (Yes I know he can’t write yet, but he could dictate to you…)
