I’ve got great news. If you’ve been trying to figure out how to find time to write but haven’t been successful, this episode is for you. Marcie Flinchum Atkins has incredible organizational skills and tips which will help you make the most out of every marvelous moment life has to offer. Marcie also gives listeners a great revision exercise that will raise works in progress to another level. Of course Marcie has plenty of teaching expertise to share as well including different ways to help students brainstorm.
Before our next episode, be sure to read Zetta Elliott’s Dragons in a Bag series, her Caldecott Honor book, A Place inside of Me and her young adult collection of poems to empower: Say Her Name. If you’re someone who spends a lot of time in the car, you can listen to the Dragons in a Bag series on the Libby App. It’ll keep you entertained for miles.
