Finding Your Voice

I am the appointed go to when my kids need English papers edited and critiqued.  Usually for Chelsea’s (the oldest) papers, it is a matter of catching grammar mistakes and showing her a spot or two that needs clarification.  But for the most part her writing is pretty clear and flows fairly well.  Now Maggie…
