School’s Out For Summer…(Or Is It?)

Okay, I can’t lie. (Well, I can.  I can actually lie quite well. But not today.)

When I was teaching, I’d be the first to belt out Alice Cooper’s anthem, “School’s out for summer! School’s out forever!” In fact, I’d belt that song out ALL THE WAY HOME.

BUT when I was a kid, going to school, and summer came ’round, I was one of those nerdy girls who …well, missed school.

There. I said it. And I’m adding this to it: I’M LOVING THE NERDY CHICKS SUMMER SCHOOL!

Oh, my word. I love the forms! I love the homework exercises! I loved last night’s webinar (even if technically, I was watching So You Think You Can Dance at the same time). I’ve loved every wonderful post (Summer School started on Monday, July 21) and I love that these wonderful writers are giving away prizes, too. And you can still register (till July 25th) and join in the fun. (It doesn’t matter if you write picture books or middle grade or young adult or even adult fiction. The subject for this year’s summer school is “Building Character.” Every story needs characters, and this summer school class will help you build your characters into something amazing.)

I LOVE IT ALL. ‘Cause it’s school in the summer, y’all, and I’m still a nerdy girl at heart.

(And that’s the truth.)

  1. Cathy–That is the same way I am at the end of the school year. Perhaps we were doing a duet?

    By the way, Sioux-on-a-Stick is going on a two-part adventure tomorrow. You’ll have to read my blog next week to find out where I went and who I visited…(HInt: One of the people I am visiting is because of something Lisa said.)

  2. Ooh, I hadn’t heard about summer school. I’m in! Thanks for bringing it up. I think all teachers have that Alice Cooper song memorized. Sometimes I practically get out the door before the kids at the end of the year! 🙂 Bless their little hearts.

  3. Definitely agree with you Cathy. The webinar last night answered many of the questions I have had. Great way to spend summer – improving my writing. Those 2 are so awesome!

  4. I spent the tenth summer of my life PLAYING school with the neighborhood kids. I always loved learning, too. Now I’m off to see what I can get myself into at your link. Thanks! You are awesome.
