Hello students of Vandalia, Ohio! I'm so excited about skyping with all of you this month and visiting you in person next month. Your fabulous Beth Green has been planning and emailing with me for weeks. We will have lots of fun writing, imagining, and creating.

I have fun planned for you already. First of all, I'd like you to look at my March 7th entry "please choose your favorite story idea". Then choose. My children are grown-up, so it helps me to know what kids your age are thinking and what you like.

Secondly, I'd like you to think about two things: your dreams and doing what you love. These two actually go hand in hand.

Have you read my book, Heart of a Tiger? In it the kitten Four has a big dream. On his Naming Day, he wants to give himself a name like that of the magnificent Bengal Tiger. But if he chooses such a name, he can only keep it if all the other animals agree it's a fair and honest name. The name he gives himself is the name he'll live with for the rest of his life.

If you could choose your name on Naming Day, what would your name be? Think about it. It's a big decision.

Have you read my book, The Pumpkin Runner? In it, Joshua Summerhayes runs a 500 mile race, just for the love of it.

Think about what you do, just for the love of it. What do you love doing?

What would your name be? What do you love doing? Both of these relate to your dreams, what you want to do in life and what you want to be in life. These are big questions. We'll talk more about them when I see you in Ohio.

In the meantime, keep reading, keep writing, and keep doing what you love!
