It seems more and more time goes along between my posts. Life happens. I'm a teacher who also tutors two days after school, teaches a sewing club two days a week and will soon be teaching a 10 week Saturday test prep class. The good thing about what I do is that I can change it up. At the end of the month our clubs change and my sewing club goes bye-bye and I start teaching a creative writing club. I love this because it is a way for me to spend time writing as well. While students work on homework the first 50 minutes I can work on any writing project or I can work on grading papers etc. After that I start my class, get the students started and then they write. There will be time to share and critique. I did this last year but the way the club was set up I had students who were in and out. This year when they sign up they are with me two days a week for nine weeks. We can get some work done on our own projects. The enthusiasm is great. Several teachers have talked me up and I currently have ten students I am aware of that are very excited.
So what are my plans besides working at school? My husband and I have talked and we are looking at self-publishing my first book. I am determined to complete my ghost story and my historical fiction. I may even post some of my poetry here. Poetry is what I write when I'm frustrated, angry, bored or when my students are doing a poetry unit at school and I have to model. Look tomorrow for a couple of examples.
