A Letter To Teenagers

To many teenagers,

You need to learn how to read, how to write, and how to edit.

It would be greatly appreciated.


An avid reader, an aspiring writer, and an amazing editor.

Is it pretentious to make such a request even though I am a teen myself?

A Tiny Request

Would anyone care to fund my trip to British Colombia? It’s only going to be a thousand dollars.

In fact, I’ll pay you back. In ten years. You know, when I start working.

Thank you generous members of the blogging universe.
