Life, Unschooling

And so they write

 

They write?

Yes, my sons write. For themselves, for work, for university, for life.

How did they grow to become writers?

“Three Rules for Literary Success: 1. Read a lot.
2. Write a lot. 3. Read a lot more, write a lot more.”
Robert Silverberg (author)

We read a lot, from the time they were babies, I shared books with my sons.

We wrote a lot. From the time they were toddlers, we had scrapbooks and journals, for cutting and pasting and scribbling and for mum to scribe their stories.

We had writing and journaling nooks, with paper and pretty notebooks and coloured pencils and textas and mum wrote and drew, too.

We made books, homemade books.

We blogged. We wrote reviews on Amazon. We entered competitions. We wrote letters and emails.

We read and we wrote.

And that grew writers.
