Just passing through

I can't believe it's been a week since an update. I missed this week's Of Dog's and Writing post. Sorry folks. I'm a little scattered lately.

I've been back working with my first group of incarcerated teens and had every intention of posting after each visit but like I said, I'm a little scattered lately. I hope to update more tomorrow.

Write on, right now.
There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

I love seeing the photos of your art journal pages, even though I already saw them they are still so inspirational to read them again. It's great that you are sharing these! And by the way, I've gone for weeks without posting to my blog...I'll keep checking back anyway!!

Thanks Vivian. I'm a little emotionally wiped out from all the recent sessions but it's all good. Hope you had a great weekend.

Thanks, Laura. They are going well but because they sent me back to the first school, I couldn't reuse my material. These guys are so smart. So I've had to come up with new lessons for this time and that's usually the day before I go (I go M/F/F). Then I am wiped out after a session just like a school visit.

And you're right, the posts are as intense as the sessions which means they can also take a lot out of me.

A few people have been asking me about doing a book on this, along with some of the various exercises I do with the boys, so I'm pondering that too.

And I owe you a critique!

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
