Participation


Whenever I have to teach, whether it be at church or at work, I always use the method of class led discussions. This method prompts a more interesting class and less work on my part. I'd like to think that I use this technique on my blog. You guys are a wealth of knowledge through either personal experience or study. I learn so much from each of your comments and your blogs. So don't think of me as lazy, but as mediator of debate.

On to other news.

My friend and fellow blogger Heidi had her launch day for her book "Some Kind of Normal" on Monday. Go check out her blog for more details.

I've always wanted to write a super hero book. I've been obsessed with them since I was a kid and watched the Wonder Twins activate. The other day I just started writing, had no clue what the story was going to be, but as I wrote it prompted ideas and now I have another project to work on. Funny how that works.

I think book ideas are like (really cute) cockroaches.

Where you find one, another eight or nine are hiding. And if you let them out, soon they're crawling all over your food.

(How's that for gross, right?)

:-D

New ideas are always exciting, once you get going. Have fun with it!

Jessica said...

It's def. funny how new ideas sneak up on us. You just reminded me that I'd had an idea and I forgot to write it down. Grrr...can't remember it now. LOL

You sound like a great teacher! I loved the classes where we could be more involved.

Patti said...

Jessica: I had that happen. I had a dream, but was too lazy to write it down in the middle of the night. By the morning it was forgotten.

I agree with your "facilitator of discussion" method of teaching. I teach once a month at church and I try to do this as much as possible.

Congrats to your friend and her book launch. And congrats to you on your new idea. I love new ideas. They're so fun.

Dawn Simon said...

Congratulations to your friend Heidi. I watched her book trailer--very cool.
