Dear Grandpa Great,
I only remember one thing you ever said to me. It was, “Do you laugh and cry when you read?”
I told you yes.
And you said, “Then you are a good reader.”
Well, Grandpa, today I made myself cry while writing a story. I think you would tell me that that makes me a good writer. I hope Grandma Great would agree with you. I hope the story I wrote that made me cry gets put in a book somewhere, sometime.
And I hope other parts of my stories that I write will make me laugh or cry as I write them, too.
See you in heaven,
