Not surprisingly, it is the first day of summer break for this teacher. Even less surprising, it is rather late in the day. (Hooray for sleeping in!)
This past week, I finished a revision workshop with Cheryl Klein, the ridiculously talented senior editor of Arthur A. Levine Books. Be sure to visit her resource-packed website! There's so much good stuff on the craft of writing and revision. Or just buy her terrific book on revision: Second Sight.
Two teacher workdays after that amazing weekend, I'm settling in for a summer of writing. I started, of course, by catching up on blogs while eating breakfast and found this amazing speech by Holly McGhee, owner and agent of Pippin Properties.*
So there you have it.
Odds and ends: summer has begun and I already started it with a lovely retreat.
Two sites to visit: Cheryl's website and Kathy's website.
Now I'm going to change out of my PJs.
Many thanks to Kathy Temean for posting it in her Writing and Illustrating blog!
