31 Blogs You Might Not Know - Debbie Gonzales

Austin author and educator Debbie Gonzales wears a lot of hats, and she wears them well. Her blog is a delightful mix of writing observations, tips, book discussions, and help for teachers. And then there's Simple Saturdays. Every Saturday she posts simple activities to be enjoyed by all family members. (On Fridays she posts the supplies you need for Saturday's simple activity.)

A few of my favorite posts are Sports Novels: The Voice of the Gamer and the Simple Saturday activity Autumn Leaf Potion

Tell Debbie I said hello when you stop by.

What did you think about the Toilet Paper Roll Kazoos?

Rootie Toot Toot!

You're the best, Susan.

Thanks again.

Loved the toilet roll kazoos, too! I'm going to remember them if I have to work with the younger kids again.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
