Writing Fiction - you're never too young

Today, we introduce a newcomer among our regular blog writers: Jada age 6, nearly 7...

Assistance was given by her grandmother in writing down the story, but the narrative flow came directly from Jada herself, as well as directions for the placement of boxes for her illustrations.

No doubt you'll recognise Birdie, the blue jay, with her friends.

Editor's addendum: I don't believe I'd even come across the concept of hypnotism at Jada's age, let alone imagined a scenario with such high tension!
