The Eight-Year-Old has been typing up a storm on her manual typewriter lately. Sometimes her writing is a pure flight of fancy. More often, it’s inspired by her reading. Her latest work, based on Calvin & Hobbes by the look of her writing nook, is still top secret, but she did give me permission to share with you two haikus she wrote last week from the perspective of Snoopy, the World War I Flying Ace.

Zinng! Bullets whiz by!

I am flying fast and high,

But they whiz by me.

 

I fire at “ol’ Red”

He tries to escape. He can’t.

He is mostly caught.

–The Eight-Year-Old Howell

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Nine-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
