Creative Bites

Come on in & have a bite... A CREATIVE BITE!

Here I'll share with you doses of creativity-fun little jolts of inspiration that you can try at home!

What to Do: Experiment with found writing utensils!

What to Do:  Take a hour...or even a few minutes to share your creative passion with someone else!

My results:  Today was my first day as a volunteer writing coach in Berkeley.  I met a cheerful, friendly eighth grade girl who has an exceptional ability to analyze and critique literature.  I also came across other enthusiastic and caring adults (many of them women) who want to help kids be better readers and writers.
