I'm so sorry I've ignored this blog for a month. Yikes! But as you know, I'm back to school in 1st grade. But I'm making up for it this month with 3 posts for the Grog blog, and I have something to post here later. Meanwhile, today I'm at the Grog discussing how to write a lesson plan for your book. Hope to join you there!
My post on Gelatin Minds is at my critique group's blog, Pens and Brushes, if you have time.
It's back to school time, which means time for educational writing, too. I'm interviewing my wonderful friend, Ev Christensen at the grog blog.
My summer is over, and I'm back to school, this time as a first grade teacher at Uijongbu International Christian School in South Korea. My children and I just finished our first day, a successful-after-being-nervous-hardly-any-sleep night! Below is my classroom reveal with an apple theme of red and lime green colors. Definitely teaching and decorating a classroom overseas presents its challenges. I'm missing my old teacher stores from the states! But thank God for Teachers Pay Teachers and Pinterest! As a writer, I'm loving being surrounded by more picture books! I recently caught up on some reading such as Locomotive by Brian Floca, Back to School Splat by Rob Scotton, and hot off the press--Dr. Seuss' newest book, What Pet Should I Get? If you have some favorites I need to read, let me know in the comments!
If you'd like to know a trick of what to do when you're stuck in writing, head on over to my critique group's blog, Pens and Brushes, where I have a great suggestion. Happy Summer Writing!
How is your summer going? Are you getting much writing done? I'm at the Grog blog discussing this very thing--thinking like a writer in summer! Join me if you can!
