I’ve been writing stories for just about as long as I have been able to write. Unfortunately, I fear that the very first story I can recall writing (The Worm Who Got Lost circa 1980–it was a bit of a thriller) is lost forever. Luckily, my parents held onto some of my other early endeavors at storytelling, and now you can enjoy them too! So, here’s one I wrote in 1985 when I was in fourth or fifth grade. It’s called Universal Trip, since I, apparently, thought of the universe and the solar system as essentially the same thing at the time.
