Then she became a writer, amazing her mother and her teachers with her incredible vocabulary and imagination. I still say she is a better writer -- at age 10 -- than I am now. She can write fiction. I never could.
But recently, she has become a budding little artist drawing these amazing little people -- some of them with horns ("They're trolls!" she says). I can't seem to buy her enough sketch pads, which she instantly fills with these trolls and other imaginary creatures.
Actually, she always has been a bit of an artist. Even as a tiny tot she showed a great affinity for depicting the world around her as she saw it.

Then she tells me that one of her friends has a tablet, a computer gadget that will let her draw with a virtual pen. I do some research and find a little starter model for $40 and order it. I even pay the extra for one-day shipping. It arrived last Saturday.
Now she is drawing this:

|Don't you just LOVE my hair???|
I just can't wait to see what she does next.
