One of the Dreamers

My students are just starting to use the classroom blog as an extension of their writer's notebook--a place to think, free write, develop a thought, dream.

Last night, a student shared her dream of being a writer:

I left a comment, along with a classmate, but I also forwarded the blog via Twitter to the YA author my student mentions, Laini Taylor.

Within the hour, YA author Laini Taylor left a comment on Valentine's blog entry.

Which I then posted in class, inside my writer's art frame, and the students keep gathering--awed that a writer would take the time to write to one of them--one of the dreamers.
