Lucy's latest creations...with some Narnia inspiration

I never took a moment to thank those who added in their thoughts to the post I wrote about writing and reading a couple weeks ago (HERE).  I was inspired by suggestions and learned a lot.  I love all the wisdom out there in the blog world.  I'm finally taking a few minutes to make my own comments on there today but I wanted to thank everyone here too.

Which brings me to this post.

Lucy has decided that she might as well go ahead and become an author as well as an artist. 

She has been begging for a special binder to keep all her writing in and is spilling out all kinds of stories.  

She has a goal to publish her books some day.

And with the spunk that girl has, it wouldn't surprise me if she did! ;)

We may need to work on story lines a tad bit, but I love these things.

We went to Target and bought a beautiful blue three-ring binder (her favorite color made beautiful because of the cover page she put on it...I'll have to take a picture when she gets home from school and add it here).

Here are some of her latest creations:

 Here's another one:
My favorite part is, "It was weird, but who cares?"

Great motto for life :)

These next pictures are inspired by Narnia.

We finished the Horse and His Boy last month.  (My favorite part recap is set to post on Sunday.)

And these pictures made me smile:

(Leo is Lucy's stuffed animal she HAS to sleep with and who must be there to read along with us whenever we read Narnia....see him pictured up in the pic. with us reading.)


She seriously cracks me up.

Then she felt compelled to write a little review of her first introduction to Narnia:
Oh I love how her mind works!

Here's one of my favorite notes to her beloved Audrey:

And then she mixes in a little bit of non-fiction here and there in her writing.

This is not an assignment from school, just something she felt like she wanted to write about one afternoon.
 ("a flower grows from a seed of course.")

 ("Yipee!" ...so glad that flower is growing! :)

Now if I can just keep this love of writing growing like that little flower seed she's explaining...

  1. You should look into comics and graphic novels. There are so many out there that are geared toward young girls that still have good moral stories. Some examples, Hilda, Ms Marvel (she's a muslim teen with the super powers of Captain Marvel, My Little Pony is surprisingly fun. It would be so perfect for her to combine her art and writing together. We always preview our daughter's comics and discuss morals they contain.
