#2: Crayons

"Everyone is born creative; everyone is
given a box of crayons in kindergarten."

Write about crayons. Or your childhood. Or being creative. Or being free to color/draw/paint/sing/write/whatever. Write about your true colors. Write about being young and wild and free. Or just include one line about crayon. Do whatever you want and leave me alone already.

I'd like my crayons back, please.

To Do:
  • Purchase a writing journal.
  • Choose a pen name. (Nothing offensive, no Lone Peak students.)
  • Create your own blog on Blogger (aka Blogspot) - HELP
  • Check out the Hall of Fame to see previous student work (also, the examples below).
  • Post an introduction on your blog (you're speaking to the blogging world, not to me...remember, keep it anonymous).
