Weekend Coffee Share #SOL21 #day21

I am so happy you are meeting me for coffee! Welcome to Sunday! It is sunny and officially spring!

Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers blog for the March challenge! I have been able to post to the blog every day. That hasn’t happened since….probably last March! HAHA

Thank you to Natalie for hosting the link party for all things Weekend Coffee Share!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you work has been confusing. There are all types of decisions made for our face to face transition that do not make sense and other decisions that are simply just not being made. I have made the decision to start seriously getting ready that Monday before students show up because it is going to be a lot of trial and error anyway. There are lists upon lists being made, but I am not taking action yet. This is partly due to some actions I did take and then had to redo them all because the directives changed!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you walking and running in the sun has been wonderful. We did have a little snowstorm though which seemed like a jolt! I think we may be past the snow now…maybe.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you my #10MINFOR10DAYS free challenge and it has been so inspiring. You can sign up here still! It is a 10 minute creativity challenge. I love the 10 minute time frame and am always amazed at what can be accomplished.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am trying something different with my freewrites and meeting a bit of resistance. I did use the prompt, “What is beneath the words..” with some success this week. I am having trouble letting go which is odd. I normally can let the words flow pretty easily.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you the PUSH group was amazing this past Tuesday again. I love this group and it is always so fueling. The mix of talent in the group works for everyone. Next week we are talking writing, prompts, and writer bios.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am still participating in the Two Writing Teachers blog challenge. I have been posting to the blog daily. It has been wonderful to reconnect with so many teacher writers and meet some new ones! I always am so inspired by their posts.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I met with my critique group this week and we workshopped my story. It was interesting to hear the perspective from writers who do not know my writing well. This story was more a literary fiction style rather than my weird flash fiction and they had insights expressed in a new way to me. It was wonderful. I was so nervous beforehand too so it was also a relief!

Thank you for joining me for a coffee today. I always love when we chat!

I would love to hear what you are working on and what you find inspiring.

  1. If we were having coffee, I would tell you that, even though I haven’t acted on every #10min10days, I have them safely stowed in a folder for later. (I so loved the tongue-twister one, and the discovery of Austin Kleon.) Thanks. Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. Thanks for sharing your insights into your writing — I hope the struggle resulted in something good and not just frustration! I’ve really been enjoying your #10minfor10days challenge — even if I do need to go back and make up some days that I skipped. But it’s been good writing exercise and I’ve enjoyed the stretch.

  3. If we were having coffee, I would listen to your stories. I would tell you that I see your challenge with returning to school. I don’t have any answers, but I know the challenge you face. We would likely talk about the two sides to this difficult decision. I would want to hear more about your 10 minute challenge and the writing you have been doing. Most of all, it would be nice just to be out, chatting, and having coffee.
