Young kids think they’re good at everything, leading them to explore a wide variety of interests.
Unfortunately, when kids hit middle school, they begin to form a sense of identity based on what they think they are and aren’t good at. They say things like, “I’m not an athlete. I’m no good at math.” As we age, our interests tend to narrow, constricting our choices. As writers, we need to keep expanding our horizons.
