Carve Out Time to Write

  • April 23, 2015 3:48 pm

It’s not always easy to find a large block of time to write. Sometimes we must be satisfied with a few minutes here and there.

I have found that there is time during a substitute teacher’s day to get a little writing in–while students are taking a test or are at a specialty class, or during the teacher’s prep period.

Utilizing these little blocks of time works well for some aspects of the writing process, but not all.

Itching to Write

  • March 26, 2015 4:14 pm

I do a lot of substitute teaching. There just isn’t a lot of time to write right now. The other day I was teaching sixth grade. The read-aloud book as Fablehaven, by Brandon Mull. I had, of course, heard of this novel but had never read it. I had some free time during the school day and picked the book up and was instantly drawn into the story. Not only that, but as I immersed myself in the book, I started salivating with creative juices. I felt myself itching to work on my newest junior fiction book. I can’t wait for spring break when I can hopefully get back to work on the third of my Secret Worlds books.
