i'm not sure if this will work,
(i'm not sure if i'm doing this right!) but you visited my school and told us about your new book 'On the Road to Mr. Mineo's and i saw the one legged pigeon and i thought of this pigeon i saw in Florida (a few weeks ago for Spring Break,) well, this pigeon had a stick thingy rapped around one of it's feet and it kept hopping and flying funny and i felt so bad for it. I wanted to help the pigeon but i knew it would fly away. Trust Me, this story is REAL it was sooo wierdly funny (and sad,) to see a one legged pigeon but, you never know, maybe that poor little pigeon can live without a leg if he didn't get the stick off! :) you were my favorite Author in April i've had. Thankyou!!!!!!!!!

do you think my story would be... not as good if i started it typing in stead of writing it and drafting? I would write it , but it's so much faster just to type. ???????

Yes, you can definitely type your draft. Do whatever is best to help you be creative.

I love the pigeon story.

Thank you so much for saying such nice things about Authors in April.

Hi Barbara, I had hoped to meet you at the Rochester Hills Public Library for the Authors in April Autograph Celebration, but due to schedule conflicts I was unable to attend.
