  1. That is awesome!

    Can you elaborate on The Discovery. Like it can be a discovery of anything?

  3. You know I’m rubbish at entering competitions but reading your posts always makes me wish I wasn’t. I always feel like I’ve let you down a bit and I don’t like to do that but “Life pressures” eh. They can make pitiless demands on your time

    I have an idea – I’m terrible at anything over 100 words, but If I can, I’ll give this a go πŸ˜€

    I am a 10 year old boy living in India. I have just recently started to blog and I write short stories. Just like you, I too have come up with my own characters like Jack, Dylan and Dink. I plan to make a series of some of my stories. You can read my stories at https://shortstories4kids.wordpress.com/
