“I intend to be an artist when I grow up”

Some school writing samples from 9 year old Prince, courtesy of his cousin Chazz. Posted on Reddit. Pretty cool stuff.

Dang it. Tried to embed the images, but couldn’t figure it out. Sorry about that.

His writing was more developed that most of the other samples in each of the pages.

Prince mentions breathing underwater in 1000 light years, I wonder if he was referencing this? I doubt it, just a coincedence perhaps?.

Also that spelling mistake might be from whoever typed it - might not of been Prince!

A born storyteller.

Are fourth graders this articulate, anymore? (Not just Prince, but his classmates too.) I doubt it.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
