My daughter, Marissa (17), is quite the young writer. She shares her daddy's passion for putting pen to paper. Yes, I am biased; but I think she is a good writer and she has a great deal of potential. Like her daddy, she enjoys painting with words.
I want to encourage you to visit her blog, Marissa's Rampant Mind. Recently, Marissa wrote a paper entitled The Problem of Evil, for a philosophy class. She got an "A." Yes, I'm bragging about one of my girls. What about it? :-)
I would like to encourage you to read her paper and offer Marissa your constructive feedback. I'm sure it will be an encouragement to her.
