    A piece I just did for a scene from the first of seven trenches that the whales have to go thru:

    Yesterday I had a pretty cool experience regarding my writing.

    A fourth & fifth grade creative writing teacher contacted me a while ago about presenting to her class. I went ahead and agreed for the kids. Who in their right mind doesn't want to help kids out, right? Anyway, I did it yesterday and they asked me all kinds of questions via FaceTime. Those kids were great, but they were a tough audience in certain ways. They paid attention to everything I was saying or at least their eyes seemed to say so. I spoke for 30 minutes with them and it was really rewarding for me. Afterwards the teacher was pretty nice and sent me a thank you. Said I did great, but man was it tough tempering all my answers for smart 4th and 5th grade kids who don't have a ton of life experience to relate to yet.

    I might have another one on the horizon now. Pretty exciting for me personally.

    Did I mention they were in Dallas? Right after we beat them down? I'm really glad they didn't ask me if I was a Mavs fan.

    Envious of you.

    You are like the author that gets to do the Merry Go Around now. Like the director and producer that are travellin the festival circus.

    I hope so! It's slow going so far, but this was a really cool experience.

    Not only did they, but some of them will remember your book and presentation throughout their lives whenever they come across a movie, a story or a real life experience involving whales or ocean animals, and reflect upon what you said yesterday.
