I need your help.
I’m writing myself in circles with the chapter I’m working on, and it occurred to me that some feedback from actual rather than virtual people would be incredibly useful.
I have two questions that I’d love to have answered.
What are your concerns regarding your kids and writing?
What goals hopes do you have for your kids as writers?
(Edited to add: after reading your comments, it seems that many parents once had concerns about their kids’ writing, but have let them go. Hooray! If you want to mention what your former concerns were, that would be helpful to me too. I think that parents of younger kids often have more concerns, as they haven’t yet been able to watch their kids evolve as writers.
Also, I changed the word goals to hopes in the second question, after reading Diane’s comment below. She’s right: goals connotes a sense of the parent steering the kayak and mapping the voyage. I’m really more interested in the hopes you have for your kids, regardless of your role in how they might get there.)
If you don’t have children (or even if you do), feel free to answer the same questions about yourself.
Quick responses of a few words are fine, as are wordy rambles. Any feedback will help.
Thank you. With a cherry on top.
