George is 18 years old.  He was born without arms.  He didn't let that hamper his dream of becoming a  musician.  He learned to play the guitar with his feet!  He does everything with is feet that some of us do  with our hands. He uses them to eat, wash his hair, and type. George says,"I want music to be my career. I have the opportunity to speak/play at different events or churches, you name it! I'm hoping big things will happen." He recorded his version of  "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls earned him the Strawberry Faire Scholarship.

Maybe you're more comfortable writing middle-grade chapter books. It's another avenue you can explore.  Include lively dialogue that will advance the story plot.  If you want a good children's books, edit out long, confusing, sentences.
