The alarm startled me awake with a “Time to get to work” ring yesterday morning. I was excited to see the kids and my friends at school yet it was the inner drive and inspiration to start a deep edit and revision of my manuscript that brought joy and a spring to my step. The school day went quickly and the kids are learning so much. We’ve switched up our classroom with a new look and style. Our students responded well and their excitement to learn made us smile. It was this change of pace and their response that motivated me to change it up at home.
I borrowed “the table” from my parents again. It is set up in the living room again, in front of the same chair as when the first draft was composed. I’m surrounded by piles of organized notes, chicken scratch, and a printed manuscript. I have the folders and notes for my upcoming speaking engagements too. In preparing for previous presentations and the feedback received I have decided to add a few things to the manuscript.
your law is within my heart.”
