I had the weirdest dream last night. I've always dreamed of running and being chased in some manner, of hiding, even when I most needed to be found. Last night's dream was kind of along those lines and was very vivid. I tend to dream in movie format -- sometimes I'm in the movie, but often I'm watching the movie unfold. (This is a lot like my writing style -- my books run like films in my head. What can I say? I'm a linguistic and visual/spatial learner.)
Anyway, I woke up thinking about the dream and how it could be modified to work as a book plot. I need to take notes on that for a later date.
What I really need to do is kick Afterburn (Angel and Troy Lee's story) into gear. I've written all of three sentences, the same three sentences I have over at Karin Tabke's first line contest.
What's on my plate for today? Laundry, an errand, and cleaning. I need to return some emails. Do some planning for the nonfiction units I'm teaching next. And I need to draft a list of minute minders, the little wake-me-up-to-thinking questions I give my 9th graders along with their DOL sentences. I love the way they think. Maybe tomorrow I'll share with you some of their answers to this week's minute minders.
What's on your agenda for the weekend?
