She’s got a future

I’ve never met Lacey Crichton, 11, who lives in Spanaway and informs me her birthday is on Oct. 9. But I like her spunk.

She is an aspiring writer and artist and not at all shy about looking for work. She sent me a four-page sampling, on school notebook paper, of her drawings and a short story. “I L-O-V-E to write and read!” she wrote. “I think if you like my work 20 dollars a week will be good.”

I do think her work is just about the best I’ve ever seen for an 11-year-old. But it’s not quite we need in the newspaper. If Lacey keeps at it, though, she may well be the next Garry Trudeau.
