There are many, many amazing people out there who I have met through blogging, but one of the most spectacular has to be Lenny Lee of Lenny’s World. Lenny’s an 11-year-old writer who is both encouraging and admirable, and has amazing strength and courage. He views each day as an opportunity to learn and grow, and I love that about him! Lenny has figured out things about writing that boggles my mind, a clear indication that he will one day be a force to be reckoned with when he becomes a career writer. (Remember, you heard it here first, world! Lenny will be Famous!!)
With such an incredible zest for life, Lenny could be hanging out with any crowd of folks on the net, so I feel especially lucky he’s chosen us writers to share his sunny spirit with. So, we’ve gotten together and dubbed today LENNY FEST, showing our admiration for this great guy. I hope each of you will head over to Lenny’s World to grab a bit of his sunshine for yourself!
To show my appreciation for Lenny and all he gives to others through his uplifting blog and bright personality, I’m sharing one of the first stories I ever wrote & tried to get published. I have resisted the urge to edit it because I want Lenny to know how much I admire his journey to become a stronger writer. We all started from somewhere, didn’t we? Anyway, I hope you like it, Lenny. I can’t think of anyone I would rather dedicate this story to.
Well, that’s my story. I hope you enjoyed it, Lenny! Thanks so much for being a bright spot in the blogosphere. 🙂
