Three quick things.
1. After a few weeks’ hiatus, my writing accountability partner and I have resumed our practice of exchanging weekly intentions. It’s making a difference.
2. An indication of the above: I’ve actually targeted some resources to focus on as I (finally!) begin immersing myself in a kind of self-study course in writing for kids. I’m beginning with these eight articles and this webinar (thank you, Highlights Foundation!).
3. I don’t know about you, but my calendar continues to fill up with online lectures, readings, and discussions. Today, for instance, I’m tuning in to another session of “Keep Calm and Read On,” in which librarian Lisa Silverman will facilitate a discussion of a classic (and yet, somehow new to me) short story titled “Address Unknown.” Perfect for Short Story Month (which, yes, is happening NOW).
