Whoa! Hold on one minute!!!
No one, but NO one, said summer could go this fast.
I mean, seriously, like mind-blowingly fast.
Alas, it has, and, thus, it is somehow our last official day -- and our last official Friday Feedback -- of the 2014 Teachers Write! summer.
*cue tears* Because, trust me, we are all as sad as you are.
Yet, all we can do is make the most of it. Go out with a bang! So, this modgepodge post will contain:
1. some hopefully valuable information on how to keep going when your inner critic chimes in, from Sarah Darer Littman (& a few others);
2. my now-usual parting gift (you'll see in a moment if you're new here...);
3. the name of the winner of the belated-but-not-forgotten drawing for an Advance Review Copy of Amy Fellner Dominy's A MATTER OF HEART which comes out next spring!
and, of course,
4. Some last-gasp Friday Feedback sharing of any excerpt of your choosing!
It's a long, long post, so apologies, but there's lots I wanted to cover. So, without further ado, here's Sarah, with:
#1. How to keep going when your inner critic chimes in...
