Enterprising young man/possible future author

A student (4th grade, I believe) from a Houston school I presented at friend requested me afterward. I told him I appreciate that but do not link with young people online. He wrote back to tell me that he understands—and to float an idea that demands to be shared: "I was thinking maybe we can make a story together. Think about it—it can be the first story you made with a kid."

I do love a good hook...and a go-getter. Literally as I was writing this post, I received a second message from him: "Oh, and I won't stop trying. Just like you did not stop." (He was referring to the primary message of my presentation, the importance of persistence.)

While I won't be able to accept the offer, I will keep an eye out for this one...
