For most of the year, I spend my time writing. One of the most difficult times to keep writing, however, is back to school time. Not for my kids, but for me!
I teach high school English and creative writing as my “job.” It’s a very rewarding career and I love seeing inspiration on young faces. While it does have its downsides, like any career, it really does have its highlights.
I’ve been working on planning my next story much more slowly than usual, but school has taken me over the past few weeks. It seems like there’s no room left in my brain for my own creativity. I know it will clear up, but not for the foreseeable future.
I do have a GOOD update for my followers: I’ve received word from my publisher that one of my short stories will be released in September, in an anthology format. I am VERY excited about this one and have already seen the cover artwork. It looks great! Stay tuned…
