Write a story about a day at school for a kid your age. If can be fiction or non-fiction.
What could happen to your character to show the reader how amazing he or she is?
Does she stand up to a bully?
Perhaps he as astounding math skills.
Do a group of students foil an alien plot to take over the school?
Perhaps a shy child discovers a new talent for writing or singing.
Let your imagination take you on an adventure! Happy writing.

Look at the photograph very carefully and then write a story about what you see.
Some questions you can ask before you start writing your story:
Is it a recent picture or an older one? How can you tell?
Who is the girl in the picture? Look at her face. What is she thinking? How does she feel?
What time of year is it?
Look at the dog. Is there anything unusual about him?
Who is the man looking into the camera?
Who or what is he taking a picture of?
What other details do you see and what might they mean?

All I ask in return is that you post a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and any other book review sites you use, including Goodreads and others.

Write a story about a dog. It can be your dog or someone else's. Write a true story or make one up. What kind of dog is it? Does he or she have any special skills? Perhaps this dog can do tricks. Maybe it likes to sleep all day and chew up your socks at night.
Do you know any tips on how to train a dog? Do you have a funny story to tell about your pet? If so, ADDIE would love to hear about it. Post your story on the blog for a chance to win a signed copy of Storee Wryter Gets a Dog, featuring ADDIE one of the first Educational Assistance Dogs trained and certified by the paws4people foundation.
