And We're Off!

Today begins my spring 50/50 Writing Challenge with my 5th, 6th & 7th graders. The participants agree to write 50 words a day for 50 days on a creative story. I don't check it, I don't correct it, I don't even give it a grade. It's strictly voluntary if they like writing. Out of 59 kids, 33 took the plunge!

I wasn't going to write with them this time because I thought I should focus on my job-hunting. But then I thought, I could do at least 50 words a day for 50 days. Sheesh, what am I a slacker? So, since I have the really rough draft of the next suspense story, I decided to use the challenge to work on the rough draft of the next Scottish story.

Wish us all luck!
