Do you sometimes think that you might want to be a writer?  Or does your teacher sometimes want you to be one?  In this book, the author Nobisso tells us that "the hard work of writing is to take what no one else can see ... and put it into words so that the reader has a share in what you are experiencing,"  You need to use all sorts of words to conjure up the image of what is in your mind.  You need to use adverbs and adjectives, nouns and verbs.  Come along with Nobisso as she helps us understand what goes into good writing.
