Luke's School Journal

Whereas I've said numerous times that Eddie's gift is music, I'm beginning to think that Luke's gift may be writing. He's only eight, but he writes well--just like he speaks--and his writing is so interesting!

During the school year, he kept a journal. All of his entries show such great imagination. You can see a progression from the beginning of the school year, where he's writing very short simple sentences, to more elaborate and complex writing at the end of the year. My favorite is "On my winter break..." where he describes his near slavery at the hands of his cruel parents. Poor kid, indeed!

Luke seems to enjoy writing, so let's hope he keeps at it!

I've always enjoyed Luke's writing, ever since his first chapterbook. "The devil got stuck" is one of the best lines, anywhere, ever. Keep it up, Luke!

Detail oriented! I enjoy your writings as well, Luke. There is a lot of stuff going on with your characters. How can you came up with such stories? You are a good writer Lucas Alexander Harris!
