Creative Writing for a 10 year old girl?

We Answered:

She doesn't need creative writing classes. What she needs is a lot of books to read, paper or a laptop to write and support from you. That's all there is to it. Classes won't teach her what experience will.

If she wants support from other writers, fiction press is a great place, although it's mostly for teens.

I'm 15 and have been writing for over a year (writing as hobby I mean), so believe me when I say experience is the best teacher. I've learned a lot from my own writing, as I'm sure your daughter will and maybe already has.

Remember though, there might be times when she'll feel very negative about her writing and she'll need you to support her. Read everything she writes, but only if she asks. And make sure you praise her work and point out typos and mistakes. As a teen writer, I isolate myself from the world to write, and she might soon do that too.

"Writing is a solitary occupation. Family, friends, and society are the natural enemies of the writer. He must be alone, uninterrupted, and slightly savage if he is to sustain and complete an undertaking."

If she creates a fiction press account, I am more than willing to read her stories and review them. My name on fiction press is midnight adrenaline.

I really hope this helps you and your daughter.

What should I do about my education? (sorry its long)?

We Answered:

I don't think that you should give up on your pursuit of education. I do think that you should buckle down if you want to go back to school. Accept the fact that there are some courses you will take that don't interest you...these are the general education courses. The good thing is that most schools, if not all, do offer choices in the general education courses. So, why do I tell you that? Well, it's simple. Look at schools in NYC, Miami, and a few colleges in California with a program of interest (like art) and compare the general education courses (as well as a major of interest). Read the course descriptions. That should help you figure out which courses might be of interest.

Now, let's say that you get accepted to the school of your choice. You will have an academic advisor. Talk with them about your concerns and perhaps your past experience. Tell the advisor what courses (general edu.) interest you and if they can recommend a professor/instructor that would be a good match for your concerns. On the first day of class, see if you can set an appointment with the instructor/professor. It may seem like you would come across as a suck up but I can tell you that it looks good that you are concerned. Again, explain to them that you are concerned about how you may do in the course. Find out if the professor knows any upperclassmen that would be willing to tutor you if you need help. Don't forget that the professor is there to help you as well.

Just balance out the courses that may bore you to tears with courses that interest you. Perhaps only taking one course that is boring in your eyes. Don't overload yourself with courses in the first year. Don't forget that you can always talk with a counselor at the college if you are having a hard time adjusting or have difficulties with courses and you can't get the help from your advisor.

Good luck.

Let's see, what would be some good weekend hobbies for someone like me w/my lifestyle??

We Answered:

You should become a book writer or an artist. Go buy some paints or something, you could have weekends and weekends full of FUN! Also, have you considered sewing. I find it VERY interesting, maybe you could too. All I can say is it is very occupying.
