Writer's Block

It's been awhile since I've made use of or promoted one of my other blogs, Writer's Block. I set it up to give homeschooled students a forum on which to share their writing. Students post their writings on the blog so others can read and comment on them.

The long lost blog came to mind today because I wanted to share Alex and Jacob's writings from this week's Writing Menu. They both chose to write 10 days from a journal of a kid aboard the Mayflower. We still need to work with Jacob on punctuation, but his story just made me giggle! And I love some of the imagery in Alex's piece.

Anyway, feel free to read and comment on their writing, AND if you have a student who would like to share his/her writing on Writer's Block, email me with your name and email so I can set you up as an Author on the blog.

Starting HS next year for two of my daughters - will be in 6th and 3rd. I have six children and have HS before so I am really looking forward to this again. Our goal is through 8th grade. I think this is a really exciting idea - after all, we all write to "publish". In the sense that at least ONE person is meant to read what we write. Hopefully this will still be in operation in September.
