Nik started writing a book today, called Nikhil’s Diary.
“Because I want to make money so we can buy a computer. How much should I make it? Cheap because I don’t think anyone will buy it.”
Halfway through the first page, he changed the title to Jake’s Diary. “Because authors don’t use their real names in the title, mom!”
Then a little later, he said, “I am writing mostly about my life. But putting a different name.”
He painstakingly wrote out two pages, with a couple of drawings related to the story. He only stopped because I made him go to bed (after letting him stay up almost two hours past his bedtime, because he was so into writing.)
He is so earnest, I could just cry.
