The Craft of Writing / Re: Question about voice in non-fiction pb
« Last post by Debbie Vilardi on August 08, 2019, 06:19 PM »
Nancy, that's sad. But can the work that was done be spun to help other species? Can you show the determination of the rescue workers to not give up on preventing future extinctions? Even just a thought at the end  about what kid themselves can do will give hope. There are ways.

Thank you all. And yes, I'm an excellent secret-keeper  :-X

Ev, you put people at instant ease. And it was so wonderful to finally meet you. I'll have to try to make a mid-south event.

Non-Fiction (NF) / Re: using internet sources

The internet is fine, so long as you use credible primary sources. Wikipedia is a big no as are most blogs and secondary sources.

 Thanks, all, for the great advice. It’s nice to know that others wrestle with the same things. And to your question, Debbie,  both species are extinct. One in 2012 and one January of this year.

Ev, did your youngest grow out of it?
Yes, he did. We were investigating speech therapy for him, but, by the time we got that figured out, he was getting better. It was hard, as a parent, to watch him feel bad when other kids said unkind things.  So, I'm really glad you wrote your book. Hopefully, it'll help kids who stutter, but also help other kids to be more understanding.

BTW, I didn't notice your stutter at all when I was with you in person, so you obviously do a great job of dealing with it. :hearts
