October 6

Birthdays: Albert J. Beveridge (1862), Caroline Gordon (1895), Elizabeth Gray Vining (1902), Thor Heyerdahl (1914), David Brin (1950), Ellen Kushner (1955), Joseph Finder (1958)

Tip: Make lists of things you associate with a particular sense. For instance: soft=cotton balls, down quilts, baby’s cheeks, etc. Use these lists to enhance your writing.

Thought for the day: “Every noble work is at first impossible.” – Thomas Carlyle

Jumpstart: It’s show-and-tell day at school, but, rather than “show” everyone what you have, you have to tell them about it. Pick an object and write a description of it so that others who can’t see it will understand what it is.
