Week of June 10, 2012: Finding Inspiration
Quote of the week:
Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.
The end of each school year and spring cleaning have a lot in common. You sweep out the old, organize what remains, and list out projects you discover that need to be completed. Each of the last four years I’ve been assigned a different classroom/office. I’ve just finished cleaning out and packing up my classroom/office again in order to move to a new school for the fall. That’s a whole lot of packing and moving!
During this year’s school spring cleaning I discovered several long-lost writing resources. The one thing the pieces have in common is that they can provide authors with inspiration for writing. And what writer doesn’t need some inspiration? This week I’ll share my spring cleaning discoveries with you. Enjoy!
