For this author, creative endeavors have been sorely tested by motherhood. But also transformed, and in ways she wouldn’t have imagined – couldn’t have, without her life “rewritten” as it has been, by her children. So linger here, to read all things weaverly, writerly and motherly.

The Comet Homework




Trifecta weekend challenge:

It wasn't the first time he'd forget his homework. He'd had to write about a comet: "A frozen mixture of ice, dust and rock." But so what. It's really just a giant dirty snowball. In space, that's all.

Come link up in Sandra's writing workshop

I REALLY like this!

You are still inside the mind of a little boy from the piece that you wrote in the first person(!)

Cute. Creative take on the prompt.

I like the Point of view. A kid's view of what an adult might think of as spectacular is just ordinary to the kid. My father once took me to see the Queen Mary and I responded by saying it was such a small ship.

Nice response the prompt!

I am familiar with little boys (as I have 2) and I could totally see them describing a comet as a dustball. But those rubber balls that light up when you bounce them - those are awesome!

I have a 12-year-old boy. This little write-up will probably come from him in his near future.

Wow! I am so new at this that I'm in awe of some of the entries like yours! I know with practice I'll improve as I go along. I'm excited that I found your blog and working up the courage to participate in the workshop!

Kids really have a way of getting to the meat of it. Thanks for linking up. We hope to see you back tomorrow for the new challenge.
