Exciting News!!

Wanted to share with all my supporters the exciting news. The article written by Junior Girl Scout Tess Baur about my Medieval Writing Workshop that she attended earlier in October has been chosen to be published this Tuesday, Nov. 2 in The Denver Post Colorado Kids section!

The link to the article was posted in my blog of October 24, 2010 (see below).

Join me in Celebrating Young Writers

National Novel Writing Month

Once again, I am diving in head first into a new experience.

Please join me in my first ever participation in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) this November.

I will be starting fresh with just my research and my imagination to make my children's novel of Tutankhamen come alive in 30 days!

And as I do this, the money from my sponsorships will go directly to NaNoWriMo and its Young Writers Program which provides resources and support for writing programs for K-12.

If you can help, that would be great. If not, please think of me often as I work to hammer out 50,000 words in 30 days!

My goal is $250. I have absolutely no idea if that is unrealistically high or low!

Thanks for your support.

Girl Scout Workshops

One of the Junior Girl Scouts who attended my writing workshop in October 2010, is a writer for The Denver Post and wrote a neat article complete with pictures for the Kids Page. Here is the link to read her work and check out the pictures. I'm sure she would be delighted if you left a comment on her work!

Also, my work with the Girl Scouts would not be possible without my great volunteers: Shelley Hegge, Michele Carpinello, Barbara Carpinello, and Jodi Carpinello.
