I do have to say that I am as excited as my young kids that school is starting again. The smell of crayons, glue, new pencils, erasers and fresh paper has me all bubbly inside. With the new classes comes new challenges of meeting higher expectations. For some students the challenge is taken head on. But for others the mountain top looks unreachable. So how do you prepare students for the new school year?Sorry I am not giving out any answers to this dilemma because for everyone who is a parent knows that people deal with problems differently and not one answer is always right. So good luck to all the parents out there and bring on the quiet house!
With a quiet house comes many hours of great writing. Sitting at my desk uninterrupted writing and reading will be heaven. Some authors say they write with any kind of distractions but silence is my best friend. If the silence becomes a little much I turn on my play list. I love to play my music list on iTunes and get carried away in a story.
How do you like to get lost in your writing?
