Set Fire or Shoot Your Writing into Action for the NEW YEAR

GLANCING BACK: A Glimpse of January
A salute to the post that started it all, two years ago, a glimmer of an idea, resulting in this post, inspired the concept and driving force behind Organization and Inspiration for Fellow Writers and this blog was born.

Organization and Inspiration for Fellow Writers

By Denise Reashore

January is the time for beginnings. The first month of a fresh new year – it explodes onto the scene gushing with excitement, swift decisions, and grand plans for re-organization. An eagerness to create new habits sets a fire burning and we eagerly vow to change our writing habits.

Like a smoking gun, the excitement often cools too quickly and is lost in the wind. Before long, all of our good intentions feel as if they were for naught. But, here are some reliable strategies that will help you surge through 2013 while blazing a path in your writing that will be very difficult not to follow:

1)      Blast away thoughts of inadequate time to write by purchasing a flashy notebook, with a cover meant to inspire, and carry it with you at all times. Allow no time for excuses and always carry an extra pen.

January 27th is Family Literacy Day

January 27th is Family Literacy Day

A winter blizzard kept me inside, and ruined big plans to take Genevieve to the local library for our first Family Literacy Day. So this momma decided to make the most of it. I gathered a pile of books and headed to the living room. Throughout the day we read and played, taking breaks, eating, napping, and snacking before returning to the books.

Genevieve enjoyed popular books by Sandra Boynton and Eric Carle, but I have come to truly enjoy reading her Alice Schertle’s book Little Blue Truck.

We read 10 books in all, some of them more than once: Little Blue Truck (Alice Schertle); All Around Us (Eric Carle); Snuggle Puppy (Sandra Boynton); Moo, Baa, La La La! (Sandra Boynton); Head to Toe (Frida Bing); Read Me a Book (Barbara Reid); Frosty the Snowman (Steve Nelson & Jack Rollins); Baby Animals; Colors; and Winnie-the-Pooh ABC.
