Collaborative Creative Writing Class

Just this last week, I started teaching an after-school, creative writing class. It should be noted that all of the students are in the 6th to the 8th grade, so much of the focus is to just get them excited about writing. My goal with the class is to cover the basics of creative writing and help light that spark that all of us writers have.

Writing is Easier When I don’t have Time for It

In the last couple of days, I have found that I have been bursting with different types of writing related productivity. I have revised three short stories, wrote a rough for two others, and have even gotten back to work on the last few scenes of the current novel. Strangely, I feel more motivated to write now that I don't have as much time to do it.
