"The difference between the almost-right word and the right word is really a large matter- it is the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning." ~ Mark Twain
The Lightning Bug is a fantastic resource that will be "your writing partner, helping you write a story, from beginning to end." This site will guide you and your students in finding, developing, or finishing a story. It has teacher resources in addition to writing resources. This site is definitely worth a look this summer.
