Hi Ky, your book sounds like great fun.  You might be surprised that you have a very common problem.  A lot of people are very excited about a story and start before they think about what will happen first, second, and last.  I'd like you to consider planning what you want to happen in your story before you start writing it.  One crazy idea that might be helpful for you is to write your ending first!  You can always change the ending if you doesn't match the story after you've written the rest of it.  You might like to look at my writing page and my silly video.  Good luck and I hope you'll let me know how it goes.  If you live near Lancaster, Pa. I hope you'll come see me tonight at the Lancaster library from 6:30-8:30 and tomorrow from 10:30-11:30.  Best,  Debbie

Swamp Monster in Third GradeDear Abby, I like to think they are all good!  Since it's getting closer to the beginning of school I'm thinking about my books that go along with the first day of school.  You can find them by clicking here
     I haven't read Dear John, but I saw previews of the movie.  I have been reading lots of books about polar bears and history this summer.  Take care, Debbie

The Lost PrincessDear Sarah, I like dolphins too!  When I was growing up there was a TV show called Flipper about a boy who had a best friend who was a dolphin.  Wouldn't that be cool?  Have a great week, Debbie

Hi Katie, I go to different beaches.  Pretty soon I'm going to a new one that I've never been to before.  It's in Jamaica!  I'm pretty excited.  I wonder if mermaids have accents?  Hope you have a great summer, Debbie
