I am going to summer camp! Well, virtual summer camp in the form of a writer’s camp called Teachers Write! The camp started today with quick writes, lessons and an assignment entitled “How do you find time to write?” That is perfect for me because other than deliberating about what to write, I am constantly fighting time to set up a writing practice. This first assignment is filled with good ideas about finding the time to start a writing practice even starting with as few as 15 minutes. I read the post with more intent this time having found a place to write-my new living room perched in the tree house of a house I am currently living in. The light, the view and the different seating options make this the perfect writing room. The assignment is to create a summer writing schedule and a school year writing schedule. This is the first time that I’ve been in a writing group that was completely made up of teachers and I am excited to get the ideas to keep a writing practice going throughout the year. The first task is to cut something out of my day to create the needed time. That is a easy for me, cutting out 1 hour of TV per night will give me plenty of get started with my writing. The next part of the assignment, telling my family, won’t be too hard since all are aware of my desire to write. In the summer I can write during the morning, but when I am teaching, it will have to be when I get home in the afternoon or evening. So, with this new found time, I am hoping my muse will arrive and inspire me.
