This post was written by my ten year old daughter, who loves writing stories and recently submitted her 500 word story to a national competition.
My mum asked me to write this post on the letter Q (because she couldn’t think of anything). I am going to do it about two things: questions and queues.
Firstly questions. Even if it does drive them mad, I ask my mum and dad questions all the time. You ask questions to find out more on a subject and then when you get the answer you ask another question about the answer. If nobody asked questions than you would never get a greater knowledge. You can also ask questions for ideas. These both help you writing a story.
Now queues. Queues are boring but they are a fantastic time to think and look around you. For example imagine you’re at a theme park, stuck in a queue for a rollercoaster, all you need to do is look around. Think of a story with a few children going to a theme park. Maybe they get lost, you have plenty time in a queue to come up with a plot to a story.
You can even combine questions and queues – ask your neighbour a question while standing in a queue.
Thank you for reading my blog post!
Her favourite book:
Jean Plaidy – The Young Mary Queen of Scots
Thank you. She is mature for her age.
This is well thought out and beautifully written. You have quite a talent on your hands!
I know. I’m very proud of her!
Bravo. Your daughter did a great job. Interesting and succinct post. Not easy writing about queues, but she did it well. Kept my attention all the way.
She does have a succinct style and her handwriting puts mine to shame. She’d recently been to a fun park, so hence the queuing!
Ooo. Excellent. I will do as you suggest and start asking questions in queues (which is a hard word for an American to spell. We just say, lines, standing in lines, waiting in lines.)

Queuing is a cultural thing in the UK, see a queue join it, even if you don’t know why – if you jump the line…. it’s bad! I liked her idea about asking questions in queues too.
