Very interesting

My novel writing group is doing so well. They are learning a ton about story structure just from writing. I have one that has totally wiped the floor with me and her goal. She is well past 10,000 words. I’m sadly stuck at 2,500. This has been an uber crazy month at work. Which incidently is also why I’m a little late turning in a few things. I’m not trying to be a slacker, I promise. I’m dedicating the weekend to my inquiry stuff.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

What would your word be?

“A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow.

Source.

Can you identify a single word that sums up what you want for yourself in 2009?

It can be something tangible or intangible. It could be a thought or a feeling or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something that has personal meaning for you. This is not your mother’s word or your spouse’s word or your child’s word – this is YOUR word.

Another great digital writing link

I thought this had some great writing ideas for ways to incoroporate technology into the writing process, as well as some unconventional/newer forms of writing. I thought Aggie might be able to use the pictlit site for her inquiry. Enjoy = )

November is national novel writing month! Who knew? After sharing this site with my students this morning, I got super excited. I have several kids who are interested and I think we are going to pursue it. Our current plan is to meet once a week during lunch and recess to share what we have and how we are doing on our goal. Even if you are not interested in participating, check out the teacher’s lounge section. They have some great lesson plans and the work book they have created i is full of awesome writing tools.
Wish us luck!
