GUEST POST: Things to Do When You’re Bored

Due to a crazy week that involved a bus accident, a writers’ conference, and the end of the school year, I am sharing a guest post. My 7-year-old son wrote up this list because he is interested in typing on the computer and writing.

As a writer myself, I am thrilled to present his first published work below. He was thrilled to hear he’d be published on the blog.

You should know that he came up with the title, headings, and lists himself. He even includes a few parenthetical notes. Seriously, he’s the cutest.

I’ll be back next week as usual.
