Power of The Pen Regional (Online) 5/16/20

Good luck to Charlie Holbrooks competing today from her home computer at the Power of the Pen Regional tournament. She is an 8th grade complete rockstar. She faithfully attends our weekly writing club meetings. Mrs. Ring & Mrs. Knight are extremely proud of her!


The January tournament at Lake Erie College was her 1st attempt. She shared yesterday how she really enjoyed it and got the hang of it. She was a little nervous about today because it is online and in a new format

Mrs. Ring and I assured her that she can do this. She has a ton of potential as a writer and she also possesses the courage to share her stories and ideas. Charlie has a smile that can even light up a computer screen! It made my day.

Update from Charlie:
Prompt #1
“Who’s idea was that anyway? Explain what happened.”

She titled her story: "Be a Lady."

Now who wants to read it? I know I do.Update #2 from Charlie:

Prompt #2 was, “Hesitation. What makes people hesitate?”

Her story was titled “Teenage Turmoil”

Sounds intriguing to me!!

Now onto judging.......
