Summer School! Well, kind of...

Ok, not really. But since we're in the thick of summer, all you writers out there, this sound is the cracking of a whip! Take advantage of the time you have, even if it's just a bit, to scribble some things in your notebook or tap away on your keyboard. Before you know it, the summer will be gone and you'll be back to your eyebrows in homework. :-) I know, sorry. Hate to remind you of it.

My challenge for you over the next 6-8 weeks is to really delve into a project you've been wanting to do for some time. Brainstorm that novel idea you have like crazy! Fill up pages with ideas for it. Write those poems that have been kicking around in your head. Fill some journal pages with thoughts about what's going on in your life right now. Write it all down, my friends! You will forget it, otherwise, and someday you'll be so glad you took the time.

If you're feeling brave, commit here and let us know what you'll be working on. Then, when school starts, give us an update and tell us how it's going for you.



  1. Hi Nancy. My kiddos have been writing almost daily. I like to think I've had a little to do with it. My oldest is writing a story about Armangor's--a creature she made up (it's quite scary looking). She'll be a teen later this month. I'm more excited for her than she is I think.

    My middle child is writing about dragons (she's 10) and my youngest is writing Pokemon books (he is impressive at 7 & could give those cartoon guys a run for their money). They are such cool kids!!! =D

  2. That's so awesome! I love it! It really is so fun to see your kids write. Makes you proud!! :-)
