I was typing and hit something and lost what I was doing. How can you tell that I am new at this. Hope I’m not repeating myself.
Anyway, today was another great day at the Young Writers Academy. I even had a chance to co-teach the high school session. I was a bit nervous because I have only dealt with Middle School Students. What dedication these students. They wanted to write, write, and write. They didn’t even want a break.
I was there to answer questions and help if the need arose. This gave me a chance to work on some of my own writing. I am use to having sixth grade students coming up to me to ask, “Is this what you want?”, “Will you read what I have so far?”, etc. I am eager to hear their finished pieces during our Coffeehouse Reading on Friday.
I was tired when I got home, not because I worked with the students, but because I stayed up later than I should have the last two nights and got up earlier than I have been getting up. All I wanted when I got home was to have a nice quiet lunch whit my wife and just talk about the day. Lunch was prepared and we sat down to eat.
Now for the question: Why is it that when you are most tired and don’t feel like moving that the cat decides to leave you a furball?
