I’m brooding over book #4. The plan is to start it on January 3.
Because talking about a book is so much easier than writing one, I don’t talk about writing that isn’t written yet. Too easy to get rid of all the energy you need in order to sit down in front of 200 or more blank computer screens over a period of several months.
For Writers in the Schools, I visited grades 4-6 in Alderney School and Admiral Westphal School. Then at Ian Forsyth School on the 23rd I spent time with two grade six classes, and at Caledonia Junior High the next day with two grade sevens.
All these schools are in Dartmouth. It was my first time with grade seven, and my first presentation using Home Truths.
The teacher had read about 50 pages of the book to both classes – and what a difference that makes! The students were already into the book, knew something about it, and the questions and comments flew.
