I’ve just returned from the amazing All Write conference. I was in Warsaw, IN for four days. I come home with wonderful ideas on reading and writing. With the happiness of spending time with friends I only see in real life a few times a year. And with a complete feeling of exhaustion.

The first time I went to All Write with this group I naively thought I’d rest up. No children to wake me in the middle of the night. My own hotel room to catch up on some sleep. I didn’t realize since we only see each other two or three times a year we were going to squeeze every minute out of the conference. I’m grateful for the chance to see them and wouldn’t change a thing about it.

I will write more later about it but for now there is a post up on Jen Vincent’s blog about what I learned from All Write:

And my first article from Choice Literacy is also up:

You need to be a member to be able to read it.

Hope your summer is going well and you are fitting lots of reading, writing, and relaxing it.
