The summer was busy and eventful, bringing fatigue and change along for the ride. I had hoped to get some editing done on the second book, but after picking away at it during a few stolen moments, I had to set it aside. Unexpected things slipped under our door and we face a future that was a lot different than the one we’d been expecting.

The change brings good things, but it also brings some sadness with it. You see, I’ve accepted a different assignment for my job, so I must relinquish my role as writing club advisor. Adviser. Sorry, WordPress does not like that word spelled with an “o” but that’s how I learned it…

Anyway… I’ll be moving to a different school with different hours which means I’ll no longer be available for after school programs for the older kids. For a few moments I actually entertained the thought of having a writing group for the older elementary crowd (4th and 5th grade only) but I saw what a few of the 6th graders wrote so I’m pretty sure I’m not ready for the younger writers.

Not yet, anyway.


About Ms. Karen

This is what happens when you live with a writer: there are pens everywhere, except by the phone; many notebooks with strange scribblings that make no sense but must never be thrown away; and long rambling monologues about what certain characters would, or would not do in a given situation.

    Sorry to hear the changes bring a bit of sadness. I know how much you enjoyed the writing club. Hopefully, you’ll be able to set another one up somewhere else….
