The Déjà Vu Blogfest

Today, I am participating in The Déjà Vu Blogfest, a fun little idea to bring a post out of the archives thought up by blogger DL Hammons, Katie Mills (Creepy Query Girl, Lydia Kang, and Nicole Ducleroir. The Linky Tool is available on all four of their blogs if you're interested in other archived posts.

It's my very favorite post of 2011.

D helped me edit January Black.
D: I'm writing a story.
Me: What's it about? Is it about dogs?
D: No. People.
Me: Kids?
D: Yeah.
Me: Does it have little boys?
D: No.
Me: Little girls?
D: No.
Me: Is it about mommies and daddies?
D: No...Mommy.
Me: Oh. That's nice. Thank you.
D: No...not Mommy. Daddy.
Me: Ok. That's nice too.
D: Mommy...draw on YOUR paper.
