New Author Debut Exclusive!

I've always thought I was dead.

With these words, our mystery guest opens his new story. Please join me in welcoming a budding author--my son!

My youngest son wants to write his own stories--funny stories and maybe comics. He's a voracious reader and an insightful boy. This is his rough draft; he plans on developing a full manuscript later. (If he doesn't, he's given me exclusive rights to use any of his words. I love the first sentence, so I'm not going to forget this promise!)

He wanted me to share the rough draft with you, and I am pleased to do so. (Click on picture for full-size image.) Enjoy!

Good stuff! That first sentence indeed rocks.

Danette Haworth said...

I cannot wait for the author to come home! He's going to love seeing all these comments!

Sandy Nawrot said...

Ghosts and nose-picking! That is scary! If your son needs to do some research on the nose-picking, he can interview my son. I'm just saying.

I think it is fabulous that he is writing! He obviously has a good role model! Tell him to stick with it!

Off the subject, my stomach hurts. I'm nervous about tonight.

OMG I loved this! Esp. the part how he always punches him after he picks his nose :-) Ha! He's got talent!

This is really nice, that he's doing what he sees Mommy doing. And the drawings are great!

I wish you could have seen the pleasure on my son's face as he sat down to check out your comments. I know this has been an inspiration for him, an encouragement to keep writing!

We never know how our gestures may play in someone's life--thank you everyone for your wonderful comments!

Sandi, Danette V.--may the best man win!

Debut author - what about budding artist . . . ?

Danette said...

Wow! I LOVE that first sentence. Nice hook, little man!

Let's face it, there are two best men! And cute to boot! Can't wait for tonight. The lines were sooo busy.

Good luck! I know your finger must hurt today. Hee-Hee!

Your son is a great storyteller and writer just like his mom! One day I know I will see his name on a book jacket as an author. Two fans from Kellogg town in Michigan!
