12-year-old Floridian girl creates her own comic

Spectrum Bay News 9 did a report about a 12-year-old girl, one of the youngest children to possibly create her own stories in this sense, who's written and published some comics of her own:
While the COVID-19 pandemic brought many challenges, for some, it was a new way to form hobbies and create new opportunities.

Ever since Lily Wojtkowski can remember, she’s had a crayon or marker in her hand.

“It’s the fact you can make anything you want but on the paper,” she said.

Drawing is second nature to her — in fact, one thing she remembers from her childhood is drawing characters from the television show “My Little Pony.”

“I always liked doodling things that I had seen on a show or in real life,” she said.

[...] She also loves creating a story with her imagination. She says it started from reading comics in newspapers.

“But I wanted to make a whole page like a graphic novel, so I decided to do this interesting style of a comic book where each page is a different plot but all of them sort of all go together,” she said.

When the pandemic hit, Lily had an idea — to create her own comic book, centered around her pet rats, Pretzel and Dot, (and yes, their favorite snack is eating pretzels).

The book is called “Pretzel Rat.” Her comic book is about her pet rat who is a mailman and loves adventures.
And with the aid of her family, it's self-published. Good for her that she's being creative. There aren't many writers this young I know of, but this girl's certainly setting a good example.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
