New Middle School Peter Pan Writing Book (Downloadable and Print Versions!)

 

What makes a child enjoy writing? You’ve heard me say it before on this blog and in videos—directed instruction!

 

What makes a child love writing? Directed instruction coupled with a fun (and familiar) topic.

 

My Write On! books have both of those benchmarks—and my test students have been loving these projects so much!

Twice Told Tales: Story Writing Curriculum

My Meaningful Composition co-author (my oldest child Joshua) and I have been writing a novel for, um, four years now. Well, truth be told, he has been writing it for nearly twenty years as he started outlining it when he was eighteen years old. It is finished actually, but Joshua is a perfectionist (at teaching, instructional writing, lesson plan preparation, and novel writing), so it isn’t finished in his eyes. We recently got it back out, dusted it off, and dug in to find his perfect spot again (and add in more technology…do you know how much things change in our world in four years?).

 

Twice Told Tales: Story Writing Curriculum

I have written seventy-five books in the past fifteen years—averaging 800 pages a book.

But it has been a long journey nonetheless.
