Last Week

Last week I taught a writing workshop for kids. It was pretty remarkable and pretty intense. I mean, I even forgot to post Story School on Wednesday. (Thank you Kevin and Alexa for reminding me!)

Anyway, whenever I am teaching writing, I always end up re-learning some very important truths:

Just like the wand chooses the wizard in Harry Potter, sometimes the story chooses us.

Inspiration can be found in the strangest of places.

Expect the unexpected.

Being part of a writing community is better than not being part of a writing community.

Other people have amazing ideas.

Kids are the best.

Go deep.

Writing is for everyone.

Stories bring us together.

Have a great week!
