Weekend Warriors!

     I loved your Myths! Your planning pages were especially impressive. Planning pages for creative writing assignments can help me have a look at your process, how you arrive at your ideas, and can help spur your creativity by digging deeper and deeper into characters, plot, and setting. Planning helps you get lost up there in your head, sifting through your dreams, before writing it all down. 

     Like I told you before, I used to do this all the time when I was a child. There are so many unwritten books collecting dream dust in my head. Pretend your heart is a bottomless well. Step in and fall...

fall...

fall...and your only way back out is with the words you slap on the empty page. 

God bless you. I miss you guys already.
