No matter where you live, lives have been disrupted in many ways in the past year. During this time, I had the opportunity to teach young writers remotely. Each and every class I met with amazed me, not only with their creativity but with their ability to adapt to learning online. Hats off to them and their teachers for facing and overcoming the challenges of remote learning. Writing is such a wonderful way for young people to express themselves. It is a chance to be quiet in a world full of noise. I know as a child when I was faced with challenges, I often would find a place to write. My favorite place was under our silver maple tree in the back yard. There is nothing like creating a whole new world with your mind. Find your favorite place to write. You might be surprised where your imagination will take you.
