Laura had always wanted to be an author, right? At least that's what I always figured. So when Almanzo tells her about a writing contest, she jumps at the chance. Only things don't go the way she planned them...

This episode is pretty boring. Laura and Jenny leave Almanzo and Rose behind to go to Mancato and work on her first book. The men there make some empty promises about the way it's going to be. Before she knows it, they are completely changing the book until it's something she doesn't even recognize.

She did the right thing in the end. I like how Michael Landon comes on at the end and talk about the real Laura Ingalls Wilder and that a series of books were published forty years later...
