Process:  Stream of consciousness this morning as I woke up this morning excited about next Saturday!  I knew my title was going to be “Next Saturday” so I just started writing.  Ten minutes of writing, borrowing two lines from the TCRWP flyer,  indenting, tagging and then to post.

  1. Next Saturday looks to be stupendous! I hope this Saturday allows you to rest up for next Saturday.

    1. It’s definitely a planning day. Checking the weather day in order to PACK. Full week next week but the 4 days will really re-energize me for the end of the year!

  2. I may not be able to resist. It’s my daughter’s 18th birthday, but I could make it home in time for dinner…Great energy and reminders about the brilliance that will be in New York in a week.

    1. It’s just such a nice way to spark up “spring” thinking to build excitement for the end of the year!

      Will be thinking of you if you are NOT there! ❤

  3. What an exciting Weekend you have coming up. I am sure the anticipation will build as the week progresses. Can’t wait to hear about what you saw and learned.

    1. Thanks, so much to think about in the planning process!

  4. Dear friend – I am so happy to know that you will be there!

    1. Tara,
      So looking forward to a booster shot of learning and liteacy talk with friends. Nothing like a collection of Readers and Writiers and Learners! ❤

  5. I’ll be there too. I’m a Audra Robb, Kate Roberts, and Mary Ehrenworth groupie.

    1. Carol,
      There are so many brilliant folks at TC! All are great! ❤

  6. I will be there too Fran! I have been looking forward to this day for months now!

    1. I hope to get to see you among the thousands! The timing is perfect because I will have plenty of time to think about how I am going to “apply and use” my learning over Spring Break!
