graphophobia!

The fear of writing!

Do first drafts always read like excerpts from The Young Visiters? Or is it just me?

I'm exaggerating, but by how much I'm afraid I can't yet tell.



read The Young Visiters by 9-year-old Daisy Ashford here

What a wonderful book, I had never heard of it but I might just have to get myself a copy!

I don't have a fear of writing, more a fear of being read!

I'm poking fun @ it here, but The Young Visiters is a charming and perceptive book, especially considering the age of its author!

Yeah, if I were able to write something as good as The Young Visiters!

"This is agony cried Mr Salteena clutching hold of a table my life will be sour grapes and ashes without you."

An adult would, wrongly, try to fix "sour grapes and ashes."
