First of all, I'm hosting my first chat EVER! Tonight, 7:00 pm MTN time (so 9:00 pm Eastern, 6:00 pm Pacific) over at The Writer's Dojo. When you go over there, you just need to click on the little tab at the top that says Ninja Chat. We are going to be talking about techniques to manage and maintain that every valuable writing time. I would love to have you guys jump over and share what has worked for you and get some ideas from others. It will last an hour and I will not be handing out tardies if you are late :)
Second, my brain is in a stupor. I still am marinating all the info I got from Storymakers and the school year is winding down and so I'm in massive grading mode. I just feel like I'm completely brain dead when it comes time to write.
So, to make up for that, guess what I'm doing.
Adding more brilliant ideas.
I started this book shortly after Storymakers at the recommendation of my brother and I simply cannot say enough good about it.
Guys, it is seriously blowing my mind. And the blog just adds to it. I made a decision earlier this month that I was going to alternate fiction and non-fiction in my reading, and wow did I ever pick a good non-fiction.
These are next on the non-fiction to read list and I'm actively building my *need to read over summer* list with all kinds of good fiction and non-fiction that I just haven't got to yet.
What have you been reading? What has been on your list for a long time that you just haven't got to yet? Do you have any recommendations of what I just *need* to read during my break from teaching? How's your brain?
