You've come to the right page...
if you want to tell your story!

What I'd like you to do is to write a story about yourself, so I've thought up a bunch of questions that might help you to gather your thoughts. You can answer the questions, and your answers will make one great story, or you can just tell me about yourself without using them at all. It's up to you! Probably you'll find some of the questions helpful in reminding you of things that you want to say...
So...ready, set, here we go!
Tell me the most important things about you
Write about what makes you tick. How would you describe yourself to someone who doesn't know you at all? Like what are the best and the worst things about being you.
Write about your family--sisters, brothers, parents, pets, and anything else that you think would be important for other people to know.
Tell me about where you live. What's great about it, and what you'd like to see changed.
Tell me about school...for instance:
What's it like to go to school?
What's great about it and what really stinks?
If you were in charge, how would you change things?
Write about your classmates, too.
What do you think should be done to stop teasing?
What about your friends?
What are they like?
Can you share secrets with them?
How does talking things over with a friend make you feel?
Is there anything else that you think kids should know?
I know I didn't think of everything!

Two ways to send your story off to me:
1. Either write it on your computer in a word processing program that you know how to use. 
Then you can attach the file to an e-mail message...Or else, of course...
2. you could just e-mail your answers to me....either way, I can't wait to hear from you! 

Remember to think about including a picture or two, and to remind one of your parents to send along permission for your story, picture, e-mail link (any or all of them, of course!)
