Besides reading a #hobby I have is writing. It‘s fanfic and I only ever share it with my best friend so it‘s truly something I do for myself. Though I take it seriously and it can sometimes be frustrating but working out plot details, I do enjoy it and being creative.

UnidragonFrag Congrats! Something is better than nothing. I haven't written anything in so long. 😞 6mo
CoverToCoverGirl That‘s awesome! 6mo
TK-421 Awesome! It feels so good to write again after not doing it for awhile. If you are planning on doing Camp Nanowrimo in July, we have a Litsy cabin & you‘re welcome to join us! 😊 6mo
CocoReads @tk-421 thank you. I‘m pretty on the fence about it. I‘ve been sitting stuff out because of work and we‘re still short handed so I‘m pretty much working all of the hours most of the days. I‘m going to decide in the next day or two so I‘ll let you know. 6mo
TK-421 @CocoReads Sounds good. If you decide you‘re in I‘ll send you an invite. Totally understandable if you‘re not up for Camp this time. Hope your work situation improves soon! 6mo

Doing some writing on this cold winter night. So cold actually I‘ve got a blanket covering my front and hands/keyboard as I type. Do any of my fellow writers do that? Oh and I‘ve got my kitty on my legs, but you can‘t see him over my screen 😂

Voice seems to be what my high school students struggle with the most. This book offers insight and advice while guiding the writer through finding his or her own voice. For day #eighteen, I am posting page 18 for #novemberbythenumbers. I highly recommend this book for writers and for teachers of writers. #teachersoflitsy #writersoflitsy
