You may have noticed that my blog has been quiet of late. Or maybe you’ve been too busy to notice – and I get that!
All is okay – but I’ve just been very VERY busy! I’ve been involved in a number of different, fantastic writing workshops with such a bunch of clever, keen kids. Between the different groups we’ve been writing a picture book (which they’ll soon illustrate), writing fantastical short stories, writing persuasively and always, writing creatively. These different projects have taken a lot of time, but I’ve loved every moment of every one of the different activities, and am thrilled with the enthusiasm and creativity of the kids, and the rich discussions we’ve had about writing in the process. It inspires me!
And then there is the ‘life’ thing, that also got just a little busy, with starting a new job (on top of normal teaching role and extra teaching days to start the term) and many other busy things. (Takes a deeeeep breath…)
Needless to say, my writing has also be put on hold during this time – and aside from this quick blog post, I’ve gotta tell you I’ll be back to the writing before the blogging! This week I’m itching to throw myself into a couple of writing projects. (I promise I’ll be writing this week!) And I’ll be back here on the blog soon after. This is just my reassurance that I am okay – just quiet. (Since some of you have been asking…)
Maybe I’ll even tell you about some of these projects I’ve been working on.
Thanks for checking in – and caring.
