    Here’s what my 10yo son had to say about this freewrite:

    I would hopefully find, like, one of those Harry Potter wands; not one of the black-and-white ones.

    First, I’d grant myself with the power of telekinetic flight, then I’d grant me the powers of telekinesis, transformation of a Grey Wolf and a cougar, of disappearance and the ability to pass through solid objects.

    He really likes doing these!

    Great topic, Julie, the kids had fun with these! Zac’s is ALL boy! He wrote:

    I found a magic wand. I made 8 of every Nerf gun there is. Then I made 8 bikes that turn into speeders. I went to my friend’s house and we had a dart gun fight. The darts flew through the air! Then more friends came and we teamed up and did what boys do best: fight fight and fight fight fight with dart guns. Then we had races again and again. And it was the Best day ever!

    Where am I? There is so much sand here. I must be in the desert. I walked for miles and miles; then I saw it. It looked like the city of Egypt. I went inside the walls and saw a magic wand. It said, “make a wish and it will come true,” so I made a wish: “I want to go home.” And then I was home. And then I said, “Take away my Daddy’s Lyme Disease.” And after that I lived happily ever after. The end.

    These are so great! I would love it if people would post their freewrites every Friday. This helps all of us get a much better feel for what freewriting is, what the possibilities are and how truly freeeeeee this kind of writing is.

    Thanks ladies! Thank your kids for me too. I enjoyed them immensely.
