Best Laid Plans…

It’s been an exhausting week. I started out with high hopes. I was going to get a lot of writing done:

  • work on my novel,
  • editing a short story,
  • a post about writing here on sbhebert.com,
  • and some thoughts about the nature of experience at the unruly buddha.

None of that really happened.

The teaching gig—our primary mode of, ya know, paying for life—wore me out this week. We’re back in the classroom and I’m doing my best to figure out how to balance teaching (in all of it’s “de-densified” glory) and writing.

I did manage, however, to produce a piece for ROOTED. You’ll find that link below.

If you’ve read my post about my writing process, then you’ll understand what I’m about to tell you: my “IDEAS” box for all of my blogs is brimming. Finding the time, however, to edit them into workable pieces…yeah…that’s where the breakdown is happening.

Not to worry. This too shall pass! Everything passes, everything changes.

I hope you’ve had a good short week after Labor Day. Below, you’ll find some good stuff to read during what will prove to be, I’m sure, a relaxing weekend.

I wrote this…

Five Things: What’s essential in your curriculum?
What’s essential in your class? If you could teach just five things this year, what would they be?


I’m keeping a #RequiredReading Collection on Twitter. Added this week:

Thanks so much for reading! I hope you have an amazing weekend!
