It would be frustrating if it weren't so blinking inspiring. Now I have Inspiration Induced Frustration. Just what I needed. Another condition to suffer from. I found this idea on Pinterest too…

"Words are a poet's paint...Every word has the power to make something happen." -Poet and Author Georgia Heard What I Know About Writing Strategies The first step in helping kids become great writers is convincing them that they have a story to tell.
