I wanted to publish this three days ago, but I ran into a problem: I don’t know what to write. Serious writer’s block. And I don’t like it.
It’s a personal problem, and temporary, I know. I’ll get over it. But it does bring up a serious homeschooling issue. I’m responsible for teaching my children how to write. I’m willing to do what it takes. I’d even like to help them survive their own episodes of writer’s block. But my oldest daughter is dreaming of a career as a writer and, frankly, I’m intimidated. (There, I said it.)
So I ask you:
Can you help us? What do you do when a big blank sheet of paper is staring you in the face? My daughter’s current coping method is to pace around the house. It makes me batty! It reduces me to begging:
Somebody, please help us!
