As a child I always loved the first day of a new term.
As a teacher I still get excited.
I look forward to a new start, catching up with my colleagues' news and feel a burst of creative energy.
Yesterday was no different.
It was a busy day full of challenges with a perfect ending.
It was the first day of our new writing group.
Last year we had a small group of 3, or if we were lucky, 4.
This time we had 10 student along with the college principal.
The principal and I have enjoyed many chats about writing in the past 12 months and I knew she wanted to come but never expected to see her.
I introduced the concept of Free Writing based on Natalie Goldberg's writing practice principles and we all had a go.
It was so uplifting to meet such a wonderful group of like-minded people.
