Day 6. Approximately 143 hours with little contact from the outside world. Okay, fine, if I take out sleeping hours I suppose that's about 30 hours less this week. 113 hours. to be fair, I'll round it down to 110. Happy now? The thing is, I expected this to...

Hike Your Own Hike: My #NCTE14  Reflection #SOL14
Everyone has to hike their own hike. I first heard this phrase when reading Jennifer Pharr Davis' Becoming Odyssa, a memoir of her first through-hike on the Appalachian Trail. If you've not heard it before, the context is sim...

I'm headed out on a fourteen hour drive from Texas to Illinois today, with Uno and Dos as my roadtrip buddies, so we can offer support to my mom as she goes in for surgery tomorrow. Time for a post is scarce, so here is my slim 10 Things for Tuesday post of...

#WanderlustWednesday - Into the Woods!
Last week on #WanderlustWednesday , I shared how The Husband and I prepared for our first overnight backpacking trip. This week, we're into the woods! Perhaps you don't remember, but when we first stepped onto the trail we were greeted by this lovely map. T...
Perhaps you don't remember, but when we first stepped onto the trail we were greeted by this lovely map. This lovely, yellowed, sun-faded map. About the only thing the map was good for was freaking me smooth out. Friends, if you have not spent much time in your adult life traipsing through the ...

Self-contained? Departmentalized? What is really best for #learners?
The way I know I am still growing is this: I learn every day that I have no idea what I am doing. And that's okay. The cycle of my learning life goes a little something like this: I wonder how this works > I am so awesom...

Reflecting on #NaNoWriMo
December will be here in less than an hour, and my NaNoWriMo project has been a tremendous flop this year. A piece of me is gnashing and wailing and grumbling about, unsettled that I missed the mark for the first time in three years.  A larger piece of me, ...

Call me crazy, but I sort of love arriving at school an hour before class begins. Not because I can get so much extra work done in those quiet hours before students are trouncing through every nook and cranny in the building...

The Idea Factory
The class I am taking this summer is about crafting the short story. I've never been a huge reader or writer of short stories, so I thought this would be a good way to step out of my comfort zone and focus on some elements of writing that I want to work on....
I thought about this a lot on the way from class tonight, as I mulled over my story idea for our first assignment. This idea happened to come from a news article I read recently, one that I can't seem to let go of because the tragic end left me with so many questions.

#IMWAYR - Past, Present, Future Reading
