My first day was very relaxing. We went over Saira's accomplishments as an author. She is such a busy bee! With multiple projects in the making and great ones already published. The day was full of laughter, stories, and playful ideas. I shared some stories from my childhood years and she did as well. She really enjoyed one of my stories about a zoo. She asked questions and seemed very interested in me. I felt happy. I started editing a couple of her projects as we chatted. She continued to work on some of her pieces and showed me more accomplishments. We discussed marketing, editing, website design, and software. I was shown some of her extensive research that she did before creating her books. This gave me an idea about how much really goes into writing a book. Not only does she write her own books; she also publishes, edits, and illustrates for them. I gave her feedback on a couple of ideas she had in mind and she loved it! Today was very successful.
