Brennan met his goal and completed his NaNoWriMo challenge (National Novel Writing Month). He's worked almost every day this month to finish 3,000 words on his Beaker the Penguin series and meet the goal he set for himself. As a result, he will receive several bound and professionally produced copies of his book. Over the next week, we'll be posting excerpts of his writing on Gypsyschoolhouse. Though he can type and write pretty well, these stories were dictated to Dad (after some plot planning) and edited over the month of November. If you or your kids write, this is a fun way to challenge yourself and keep up with other writing buddies as you progress. Congratulations, Brennan!
