    I'm just being lazy now (a sign that my year's going ok!) but any suggestions on a short story that has particularly good descriptions (of anything) and is engaging to kids? I want to use one in my creative writing class since we're talking about descriptive writing.

    First of all, glad to see you here again! Was wondering what you were up to these days. It's hard to forget a screen name like yours.

    I'm biased, but this is a story written by a friend of mine. It is full of descriptive language about the narrator's fight with breast cancer. Also, there are a multitude of minor characters in the story, but each one has just enough detail to give them literary weight. I'm always happy to push Trish's work on the general populace!
