Brave Writer and Children with Learning Differences by Shawna of Not the Former Things
“Brave Writer has been instrumental in helping my children become writers, and in helping their mom understand what it really takes to be a writer. (Note to self: commas and adverbs are not initially essential ingredients in the creation any great literary work.)

“I am not one of those moms who can’t get rid of books. I am a purger. And I have no problem purging books. The way I see it, that is what libraries are for. Libraries house my books. But even I have my soft spots and my memories, so I must admit that there is a section of our hallway bookcase that is more than just a shelf of books. It is a collection of memories that will always be exempt from purging…” Read more
