Hey y'all. It turns out that my dad's cell phone acts as a hotspot, so I can do some writing on here even though home internet isn't set up yet. Dad's cell phone, naturally being with him, isn't around all the time, but I can just write up blogs from my personal laptop (no internet there anyway -- too distracting for a writer) and then post them using the laptop.
So I was thinking about things lately, and I realized that there are no writer prodigies. A prodigy is someone who is naturally gifted to be good at doing a certain activity. For example, there are study prodigies who are good at learning, music prodigies, repair prodigies, and so on and so forth. But there are never any writer prodigies. Beethoven wrote a symphony when he was three, but no three year old of any sort can write a novel of any great significance. Oh sure, they might get away with one of those odd little Beginning Readers books with ten words per page and a vast illustration (of course done by somebody else) but that is only on the whims of older people who happen to look at what the child is doing and thinks it's adorable. Not big sellers or important novels.
