I received an email a couple weeks ago from Orange Jeep Dad (who is in the process of relocating to Idaho, yeah!!) asking me to read a deep and heartfelt piece written by his fifteen year old daughter. I read it, spellbound, from beginning to end. Speaking as a writer, I noticed a few point-of-view errors... but those were nothing next to the emotion and raw feeling in the piece.
It's long but powerful. I urge everyone to go read it here. You might also leave some encouraging comments on his post, since I'm sure his daughter would love to get feedback.
Me... I think this kid has a future as a writer if she can wring this kind of emotion from her readers at such a young age.
