I wrote a piece earlier in the week for Amber. It was better than most of the stuff I scrawl here. I write fairly prolifically in some other venues: I have a couple of private blogs I write within: one with other local writers and one with mentors/mentees. I google doc a few unfortunates nearly daily about my latest somewhat strange concern/obsession/genius idea and I journal somewhat regularly. I write rather prolifically and quickly. I can do volume. But, this blog was designed around my teaching discoveries and needs and I don’t teach classes which lend themselves to writing creatively this year. I doubt seriously that you all are up to reading high school seniors’ take on economic questions. I make myself read them… So, since this is the space in which I connect to people outside my little geographical world, I want to find a way to use it well. I would miss all of you terribly.
Oh yeah, I am also working on a curriculum and helping edit a scholarly paper for a friend. Folks, my brain needs some assistance. Do you have a set of prompts that worked well for you? I have used all of my go-to’s here already. Could you throw a few my way?
