For the writer in most of us

December 3, 2011
By Cindy Votruba , Marshall Independent

When I was in the sixth grade, I?remember trying to write a book. It was written longhand in a notebook and it was a dialogue-heavy and fictionalized look at my class at St. Anne's School. I remember even writing to Scholastic Press if the publishing company would accept a manuscript, even if it was handwritten (and by a kid). I?figured that since Gordon Korman was able to have his first book published ("This Can't Be Happening At MacDonald Hall") when he was 14 years old, I?could too. But I have since tossed that notebook and to tell you the truth, I don't think I would ever want that particular book published. I?used to write a lot of fiction stories when I?was younger, but those days have long gone by.
