It’s been a bit quiet around here. Like many others, I’m struggling to find the spark that ignites some creativity. I’m still reading – and sharing – content on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, but writing? Not so much. My writing “meh” is most definitely related to being home 24/7, and I routinely find other things to divert my attention.
It isn’t “Cabin Fever,” per se, because even with our Stay-at-Home order, I have more freedom of movement than I would in a snowstorm.
Thankfully, I can go outdoors, and I go out to play in the dirt nearly every day. What used to be a very steep hill full of weeds is being cleared out for yarrow, irises, daffodils, and hosta I’ve thinned form other gardens.
And you know what else? I’ve dug up some writing inspiration! In addition to finally reviewing a collection of read-but-not-reviewed middle grade books, I am tackling a stack of picture books that I’ve been “meaning” to read and review for a long time now.
Last but not least, I’m going to create a series of posts to put some activity into the learning that parents are guiding from home.
No worksheets, no websites, no textbooks. These are ideas to spark imagination, inspiration, and creativity. Together.
