Happy Birthday, USA

Have a very safe and happy holiday






And for a quick, fun read, here's a short-short I wrote years ago, primarily as an exercise in Point of View. I'd never written a child's POV before--or since.

Terry, hope you have a safe and fun Fourth of July. Writing from a child's POV would seem more difficult to me.

Which is probably why I haven't done it since! Hard enough writing kids when they're not POV characters.

Happy 4th, Terry!

Thanks, Gillian. You too

Happy 4th of July, Terry! I liked your story--the POV worked out well. :)

Thanks, Elizabeth. That was a very-early-in-my-writing exercise, but it was fun to do. Maybe it helped that I've had a lot of experience with pre-schoolers.
