Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.
~ Maria Montessori
Born on August 31, 1870: The Italian educator Maria Montessori initially trained as a doctor, which was nearly unheard of for women at the time. She later studied psychology and developed her theories of
early childhood education, which she put into practice with her Casa dei Bambini schools.
Montessori education continues to be popular around the world.
Exciting times are fast approaching! Texas Two Step is scheduled to be released on Thursday, November 6 and to get the party started I’ve worked with my publisher to offer the electronic version of Florida Heat for a lower price. You don’t have to read Florida Heat to know or understand Texas Two Step. My new bookmarks arrived and I’d love to share them! If you’d like one, or maybe several to share, let me know by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As of right now, I have one blog scheduled at The Roses of Prose on Tuesday, October 28. I’m looking into going on a virtual tour with Goddess Fish. Look for more info to come on my website and click on Blog Stops, or sign up for my newsletter.
I’m in the process of figuring out the next story and a part of this process is me running away for a weekend. The weekend prior to Halloween I’ll be going to Turtle Lake with a group of writers. We help each other with our writing, whether it’s brainstorming a book, working through a plot, a character’s GMC, whatever we need we work through it. Not to mention all while having fun. I look forward to coming back and starting my new story.
Kids are into the swing of being back in school and fall soccer is coming to a close. I still have a few things on my list of things to do around the house, but not a biggie if they don’t get done. My daughter, who’s 16, is discussing what she wants to be for Halloween, whereas my son, who’s 10, hasn’t said boo about his costume. And this mom hasn’t thought about the holiday at all. Wishing you all a safe and fun Halloween!Jody
