That's right. After only a week off, I'm back to work again.
This time, it's a writing class (only a week long) for children. I am trying not to fragment their little brains* too much, but we are going to tackle three writing tasks in one week.
By week's end, they will have completed:
- an opening chapter to a novel they would like to continue writing,
- a picture book dummy with illustrations
- a small collection of poetry (from which a poetry jam may or may not grow)
I know it's a lot, but it's three hours a day. I think they can handle it.
On a different note, I am interested in suggestions for summer reading. I'd really like to keep it in the MG or YA category. My list of completed reading this year is embarrassingly tiny. I intended to read more, but my brain needed this antiquated thing called sleep so.....
But I want to know what the good books out there are. What are the books that you could just NOT stop reading, even when you knew you should go to sleep? What are books that refused to let your brain turn itself off while you read?
Leave suggestions in the comments, please...pretty please????
