Still without Internet, I’m posting this week’s words. This dozen comes from poet friend Catherine. She was inspired by one of her favorite shows, Penny Dreadful.
Enjoy them, toy with them, work them into something astounding!
This week’s words were lifted from chapter 1 of a book I’m reading for school, Write Like This ~Teaching Real-World Writing through Modeling & Mentor Texts, by Kelly Gallagher. Gallagher’s books have been informing my instruction as a teacher of reading and writing for years. His work is a valuable resource.
Fellow poet Catherine McGregor, The Quiet One, provided this week’s list from a favorite television program, Penny Dreadful. While school is out, I had meetings Friday and Saturday, and am heading to Helena tomorrow for a three-day meeting. Summers mean meetings for me, but after Wednesday things should slow down. I haven’t written a piece yet, but hope to get something together this morning. Oh yeah, daughter Thyra just came home from her first year at college in Washington D.C. :)
Life is good.
