When we write, we are writers. This week we are 100% writers because we are publishing our personal narrative stories. Let me tell you, it's not easy publishing a book.
First, we looked through our writing notebooks and decided which story was worthy of publication. Next we thought about the book's layout: tall or small, illustrations or only text. Once we made these decisions, we set to work on our final copies. Out of respect for our readers, we are paying attention to correctly using capital letters, spacing between words, spelling, and punctuation at the ends of our sentences. Whew it's a lot to pay attention to.
The work in our publishing house this week is going well. We hope to finish our final copies in the next few days because we can't wait to share these stories with families during conferences. So here's to deadlines and published stories. Here's to writing and writers. And here's to Seconds!
