Mission Accomplished


It seems like such a long time ago now, but last November my Betz, age 12 (then 11), wrote a 30,000 word novella for NaNoWriMo's (National Novel Writer's Month) Young Writer's Program. When she learned that CreateSpace was offering five free copies to finishers, she was determined to have her book printed!

That was not an easy task.  It required designing a cover, proofreading and re-proofreading the text of her book, formatting the text, titles, headings, and artwork to fit within CreateSpace's parameters, and doing some desperate magic tricks with software file formats. What a great education!  And Betz's determination paid off.  Her book is at the printer and will be shipped this week.  We can't wait to see it!

I am pretty pleased with my sweet girl.  :)

    My little Katie loves to write. I'll have to tell her about that event when she's a bit older.
