READ and WRITE Every Day 

Write about your favorite PET, or your favorite PLACE, or your favorite PERSON. Write what you know and research what you want to know. Read lots of good books... carry a notebook. Get an idea... write it down ... create a BOOK OF WORDS! Gather words while you are reading or listening. Be a word collector! Get out your pencil or crayon when you're stuck on a word or sentence and draw. Look at photographs...begin with a scene or setting...use your imagination.
