Conflict! Conflict! Conflict!

Dragonfly Blue

I’ve been so busy with writing books, deadlines, making bears, taking pictures, 🙂 that I haven’t been teaching too many full-class online workshops, except on an individual basis. A publisher signed up seventeen of her authors to take my conflict course, so I’m happily critiquing student exercises.

Not all writers can teach. Not all teachers can teach. But ever since I was a kid, I wanted to teach. When I was in 6th grade, I was in Teachers of Tomorrow, and taught a class on artwork to 2nd graders and to 3rd graders later. It was a fun experience, and I always thought I’d be a teacher.

My dad discouraged it because there was no money in teaching, he said. So after getting a masters in business and accounting, working as a personnel officer, and doing so many different things, I started teaching writers how to hone their writing.

And I love it. But I’d kind of gotten away from it because I’ve been so busy with writing.

One of the things that I love about teaching, is it reminds me how to edit my own work as I’m critiquing. Wow, am I doing all the things I tell others to do???

So I’m off to critique some more lessons, loving it, and still trying to get my word count in for A Silver Wolf Christmas! I reached 40,000 words last night, which means I’m halfway done, and worked on 3 bears!!!

If I’m not taking pictures, or making bears, or writing books, I’m getting ready to go to my Facebook Party for the release of Hero of a Highland Wolf!

I will be taking everyone on a Crathes Castle and gardens in Scotland  tour this time. We couldn’t take pictures of the inside of the castle, but we could take pictures of the gardens from the castle, and then we paid also to visit the gardens and I have lots of those too. It was in October, and the fall colors and the flowers were in full bloom, and the grass was spectacularly green–just beautiful.

Castle below is Dunnottar.

I have a million things to do today. I reached 53,000 on Call of the Cougar, 17,000 words to go. I will have my notebook with me and maybe can write some on the plane. Camera battery charged, new disk, I’m all set!

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend!
