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.
Writing is for everyone.
Stories bring us together.
Have a great week!
