“As a toddler exploring the world, we are experiencing stories all around us. We grow, we speak and begin communicating our messages more clearly. Our writing begins with these ideas, content and story. It doesn’t begin with a pencil in our hand but instead much earlier. We begin paving the way of a writer when our eyes open up for the first time and we breathe in this life, our stage, our theater to write our dramatic beginnings. We begin our story.”
I enjoyed this quote from (twowritingteachers) because it helped explain the writing process for young children! Many people believe that only older students can begin writing and creating stories; however, like this quote states, children are creating stories constantly while playing. I remember that I used to come up with the most detailed concepts with my dolls and describe them to friends – I started writing down my ideas into scripts and stories when I was older, but the idea of a story was there much earlier.
This one is for yesterday because it was a very fast-paced evening after work with dinner and a movie.
