“Received a lovely letter from a teen, today,” writes Nikki Grimes on her Facebook Page.
Some of her questions were better than a few I’ve received from adults! “I’ve been writing my own stories since I was little, and I’ve always wanted to know what the job was like. I’ve also been wondering, how do you develop characters? I’ve also had trouble with creating a nice, steady character, and I think that you have very unique ones in your books. So I was wondering if if you had some ideas.” I love this girl! She’ll be getting a long response in her mailbox, soon.
