Making Soldiers Smile
Re: Angela’s article last week
I work in a preschool, and I also moonlight as a reporter/photographer for a small newspaper. Last week a mom asked if we could make 75 Easter cards for her brother-in-law’s unit stationed in Baghdad. Not only did the kids make the cards, but I also took a photo with all of the kids holding up a banner sending Easter greetings to Baghdad.
The photo, along with a short story, was featured in a half-page story in the newspaper. The lady in charge of forwarding the Easter cards contacted me and ended up sending several copies of the paper to Baghdad as well. I am supposed to get a photo of the soldiers reading my story. I think that is really cool and I hope we made more than 75 people smile with this!

Absolutely awesome piece by Carolyn Campbell about naming your book. I printed it and put it in my “how to write” file. Thanks so much for your terrific newsletter.
