Make your kid a writer

I enjoyed this. Of course, the post isn’t really about making your kid a writer—that would have given me the willies. It’s more about getting out of the way if she’s so inclined.

I think you know pretty fast. If she hasn’t got her nose permanently stuck in a book at a pretty early age, she won’t be a writer. There’s more to it than that, of course. Reading is necessary but not sufficient. She might, for example, prefer to make a decent living.

Thanks to Ta-Nehisi Coates’s great blog, in my book the finest one on the web. Best writing. Most thoughtful. Most interesting community. And a fascinating, ongoing personal journey.
