Thanks to Linda B. at TeacherDance for hosting Poetry Friday today.
When I look at look at my posting history over the last two months, it’s a bit slim especially with Poetry Friday. I’ve sort have been in a writing slump.
My trip to the poetry workshop at Highlights Foundation was incredible, amazing, intense, and challenging. I still have yet to write a proper post about the experience. Two things for sure:
- I’ve torn apart the writing room since my return (this was thanks to Rebeccca Kai Dotlitch’s and Georgia Heard’s sharing and discussing their writing space on the first day) . It was like I got hit with “I-know-what-I-want-to-do-with-the-space” bug along with the extreme need to sort and purge all the things I brought home from school. When finished, I’ll show before and after.
- My big question take away: How do I write more for children? It became very evident to me that I write a lot in a more adult tone. I am processing this quite a bit and my writing has slowed way down. It’s all good as I know I am working at a subconscious level.
Can you believe it’s NOVEMBER? One thing that working in the writing room has done for me is to rediscover these wonderful New Year Postcards. It was such a great way to celebrate the incoming year. Plus, I consider it a New Year through the Chinese New years so you have time in January.
