Good Morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #64 – hosted by Pat And Candy.com!
And then you may not be surprised to also know we are SO. JAZZED. that November means it’s time for NaNoWriMo again! Aren’t YOU excited?!? So as not to be totally rude to those who may not be familiar with the hoopla, “NaNoWriMo” stands for National Novel Writing Month (see what they did there?). Now, now, before your eyes glaze over, let me tell you that this can be tons of fun, and an educational opportunity, as well!
For 30 days, people young and old all around the globe will be working on the Next Great American (or Dutch, or German, of Australian, or…) Novel. There are virtual classrooms, resources available, and parties planned all over the place.
If you don’t find writing fun any other time of the year…here’s your chance to give it another shot!
If you’re unsure about teaching writing, this is a terrific time to jump in with both feet…and have lots of help! You can use their lesson plans as jumping off points (spoiler alert: their particular curricula are Common Core adapted), and then move forward on your own, or have your kids/students join a virtual writing class.
If you’re an adult who has a novel inside you just itchin’ to get out, sign up here, track your progress, find support, meet other writers, and get started with pen and paper or banging on your keyboard and set it free!
I’m (still) trying to decide if this is the year for me to get started… The daughter of a friend of mine has been doing this for 4 years, and I think I’ve caught her enthusiasm.
Just can’t judge if I have too much on my plate already…think YOU might do it?!
Now…on to our features!
“I’m bored.” is a sentence that has never been allowed at our house! Kathy, from Cornerstone Confessions not only offers a wonderful solution here, but a link to even more boredom busters!
“When was the last time you said something nice to yourself?” THAT one got to me…because I honestly couldn’t answer it. Do you have that problem from time to time? Stop being so hard on yourself, and be encouraged (and a bit challenged, maybe) by Sarah’s post here.
And the most-clicked post from last week:
OK, just want to give you fair warning: Sarah may be stepping on some toes. But I appreciate both her courage and her message…
