Hello, hello! It's been a long time since I've blogged. But, as you can see, summer is here and with it has arrived "more time." I know, fellow teachers, laugh as much as you can. I have that false sense of all that I will be able to accomplish and do throughout my leisurely summer ... as I lounge in my hammock or on the beach ... sipping a refreshing, ice-cold drink ... soaking up the sun ... Right. As June is quickly vaporizing and July remains the only month with no "scheduled" working days, I am beginning to panic about how I will prepare for getting back to work in August. And so, I am also trying to focus, or perhaps refocus, on my goals. Specifically, one goal still remains: to write each day. Why? To become a better writer, one must write. To be a teacher of writing, one must be a writer herself. Here's to refocusing and relaxing!
