It must be part of the ageing process. We have lost this wonderful ability to be positive. Your 7th graders are teaching us a lesson!
Books...LOVE THEM! My favorite are the Young Adult Fantasy reads or grown-up Fantasy too. I love reading a series and if any book is under 300 pages it is just too short. I'm a new follower!Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. :-Dgigglelaughcry.blogspot.com
I'm so glad we connected here! My biggest cheerleader is my son, for sure. I look forward to following your blog and getting to know you better :)
I am so looking forward to reading your book! I can't wait! I love the fact that your students are being supportive and positive. My biggest cheerleader is my husband, even though he usually doesn't like to show it! :-)
Mine are my kids and my critique partners. Kids are such an amazing positive force. :)
Good luck with getting published...I'm on my way as well. By the way, J.K. Rowling was picked up by Bloomsbury because the CEO's 8yo daughter loved the first bit of Harry Potter he gave her to read. Those seventh graders are probably right, then! Definitely following you back. :-)
I think your seventh graders are very insightful! I'm glad to have discovered your blog, looking forward to reading more. :)
My eight year old son is my biggest cheerleader. It is wonderful to be all powerful, all insightful and unfailing in atleast someones eyes even if he is eight and I only have about maybe two to three years before he thinks I am annoying...Keep working on your book you have a wonderful way with words as you have proven with your blog posts!
