I can tell you honestly that Wally Lamb is a phenomenal writer. He has perfected the craft of bringing characters to life so that the reader can relateand empathize with them. I have taught characterization to my students on many occasions and if they weren’t middle schoolers, I would tell them to read one of Wally Lamb’s books for the best example out there.
Anyway, it has been awhile since my last post and I have been working on getting a routine down now that I am the parent of TWO children. I can say that I have my good days and my bad days. There is some thingsthat I have learned in the past couple of months since I last wrote and that is that I want to eat healthier and train my children to do the same and stress less. Stress is an energy zapper and can lead to all kinds of physical ailments not to mention writer’s block. But, I have recommitted to my poetry anthology and added the new task of children’s books. At first, I considered it “not-my-thing,” but, then I wanted more options for great books to read to my son. So, why not create that option for myself?
My focus is on building my brand and making a decision in regards to my career choice. I am an educator and love education itself but, I love small groups and at-risk groups. I will be looking for opportunities to serve children in that capacity.
