As promised, here is an example of one of my first creative writing stories. This one is appropriately entitled, “The Story of a Walk”. The story goes like this (exact spellings and grammar):
“I went for a walk one day. And I didn’t come home till night. And when I came home I went in my house and I aet my supper. Then I went to sleep. That night.”
This gem was written circa first grade. Obviously, at the time I was also pursuing the idea of becoming an illustrator, as evidenced by the above masterpiece.
I’m glad I kept practicing.
