Blog Birthday!

Happy Birthday to the Swirl & Spark blog and welcome to my first official blog post!  I’m happy to announce that Swirl & Spark is alive and swirling. For anyone just stumbling  upon this site, feel free to look around and comment. I mean it. I’d love to hear what you think of it. Besides, it’s always nice to have someone else join in on the celebration!

I have high hopes for Swirl & Spark. I’ve wanted to create a blog for young writers ever since I started writing stories myself. Well, that may be an exaggeration since back then I was only about 7 years old and all I wanted to do was act out the plays I had written for my brother and sisters.  (More on that later.)

My goal now is to create a community of young writers, a place where kids like you can gather together to encourage each other’s writing. I’m sure each of you has amazing ideas and interesting stories to tell. Hopefully by working together, we can make our stories even better!

So here it is. Swirl and Spark. I hope you like it. I hope you’ll tell your friends about it. I hope you stop by often and I hope you comment on these posts too. If you have an idea for a topic, I’d love to read about it. If you have a question, I’ll try to answer that also.  But before you go, check out the tabs on the right so you’ll get an idea of what this site is really all about!

Thanks for stopping by. See you on Wednesday… but until then keep writing. Write anything. Write a song. Write a rhyme. Write a description of your pet lizard or your princess tiara. That’s how you become a better writer.
