Focus on the Future

Fourth grade students at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School have been exploring careers. Their school counselor, Mrs. Jenny Brown, has invited a number of people from the community to talk to the students about their work. She wants to encourage the students to focus on the future.

I was honored to speak to the students today about writing. I shared with them my own journey on building a writing career. I also gave them some pointers on writing fiction. It was exciting to see this young generation thinking about their futures. I hope the remarks I made today will inspire a youngster to pursue his own writing career.

One of my favorite parts of school visits is the t-shirt drawing.
