I’m back and hopeful that this means a return to form here on Ink! Working forty-five hours a week as head teacher in a preschool classroom in Germany while living dorm-style with six other women and borrowing internet from the downstairs neighbor…it soon became clear that it would not be feasible to post regularly.
What I’ve got coming up:
- Next week I begin credential studies to become a secondary (Jr. High and High School) Art/French teacher.
- NaNoWriMo in November, for which I am slated to co-ML.
- My husband seems to have made it a personal priority to make sure I get a press, which warms my heart.
- My number two resolution for this year remains unfulfilled, which was to submit my short story “The Knight and The Key” for publication.
Germany was ultimately as inspiring as I’d hoped, and my preschoolers did an outstanding job of prying my heart open to let the light back in. It should be a fine year for writing.
I also got to visit an ice cave in Austria, which was wonderful research for my current project (which I plan to complete during NaNoWriMo 2013).
