Two stories from a young writer!

(A guest post written my great-niece Kiana)

Correction does much, but encouragement does more.
Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.

My Day!

During the day I was suspended from school, I had a bit of fun but not a lot.
I played and laughed with my Gramma but then it got boring when she sent me with Button because my Gramma had to leave when my Great Gramma had to go to the hospital by ambulance, so I was left with Button.

She took me to the store and bought some lunch then we went to town to get some groceries and get her some clothes for a Jack and Jill. Then on our way back to Button’s house she stopped 5 to 10 times to take pictures so that is when it got boring.

Button made me write a story that was part of her homework for my punishment (but secretly I’m having fun doing it because I am a great writer!!). The story that I wrote was about the dinner table (printed below) and I made it about her family. She had 12 people including her and her Mom and Dad. Buttons and Lizzy (her sister) really think it’s awesome. Thanks for reading about my day.

The Dinner Table

The great family having potatoes with gravy and corn, lots of little voices talking about the day that the poor family had. There were twelve people sitting at the table 5 brothers, and five sisters, a hardworking mother and their army fighting father.

What a beautiful family eating, laughing and smiling with joy in their hearts. The food was amazing looking, tasting and was properly set out with nice clean dishes.

The poor little family laughing while the silly brothers were singing about dead skunks in the middle of the road and the silly sisters talking about boys that made their father’s eyes roll. The mother gave them looks that made the girls giggle at the dinner table.

Then they ate the last bites on their plates, washed the dishes and went to bed with a belly full of amazing food from the dinner table.

Just a final note--(My Mom, her great Gramma is home now and doing well, and Kiana is back in school just the way it was meant to be). Education is important for everyone, especially writers like you Kiana. You will go far I have no doubt about that, all you have to remember is that you have to work hard and believe you can be anything you want. Believe in you and you will do just fine.

Just to clarify things a little. I have no idea how Kiana came to the conclusion that I would have ever used this story for my homework, silly girl. (My teacher did love it) Thank you Kiana. Hug. Aunt B

  9. Delightful! She did so well! My 12-yr-old grandson surprised me one day by writing a couple of stories on his own. He is a restless sort of child, more prone to video games than anything, though he does love books. I was so happy he might have inherited my writing gene, which I inherited from my Mom (she's about to publish her novel) Happy, happy!

    Love the photos of the cows too. Oh, and yes, we love seeing cactus growing in the ground, but I do miss the lush green-ness of Virginia. (sigh)

    The boys singing about dead skunks in the middle of the road? Sounds like our dinner table when I was young, lol.

  17. Thanks for treating us to your stories Kiana. I loved reading both of them.
    Keep writing, you've got a beaut sense of humour and a keen eye. I could picture in my mind what you were describing - which is how your Aunt Buttons writes, and that is a great gift.
    I hope to see some more of your work.
    Good wishes, Susan from Australia :D)
