My New Writing Group

I'm writing a book about pizza. It needs help. I took the story to my writing group here in town last week and they had some good suggestions. But they're adults! Every last one of them.

Since I knew I'd be visiting Allen Elementary School this morning, I asked Ms. Greer if she'd put together another critique group for me. One made up of kids. She did! The kids in this group are BIG readers. One is autistic, two are English learners: all are super-sharp. I got some great feedback, and then we MADE PIZZAS.

You can see all the fantasy pizzas the children made over here at the Allen Elementary Pizzaria.
