Less than a week…

…and the first course in www.writerswebworkshop.com begins! (Writing for Children; Novel- Writing begins on July 19.) I’m very excited about this. It’ll build on what began with the previous workshop site. Summertime can be such a wonder-full time to begin such a path. It seems relaxed and rather lulls you into a sense of not really doing all that much…and before you know it, you’ve accomplished something; this is my experience of awakening with the sun, sitting alone, but with a cup of coffee and a pen out on the deck. Page after page, even just a couple each day…and then a thin pile, a bit thicker, another chapter, a story…ready for the [word omitted–see comments!] re-write of Fall.

Gotcha!

Learning in Finland

My friend Amy sent this to me: http://vodpod.com/watch/3409792-bbc-news-world-news-america-why-do-finlands-schools-get-the-best-results

Amazing! Watch for the moment when the kids all head off on their own to X-country ski!

I so appreciate that they don’t start formalized learning until they’re seven. I wonder what are the numbers of prescriptions and LDs…
