Mojo Lesson from Sexy Sax Man

Is it hot enough for you? My brain is fried, but I'm having a great time getting my sillies out with Writopia kids. Yes, of course they are working hard to finish and polish their original pieces, but that doesn't preclude FUN. We have two plot-driven stories going where anyone can take a break from their own work and add a paragraph to the craziness.

And today these 9th grade boys introduced me to the Sexy Sax Man, Sergio Flores, who has cameos in our action-packed comic sci-fi stories.

Sexy Sax Man, you have given me an Aha! moment. I have been lamenting my own writing mojo these days because I've been so busy teaching (and yes, gallivanting with Potter-heads in Florida) but you've shown me that you take your mojo wherever you are, as indeed my grandmother did.  (My grandmother trained herself to write anywhere - even at the airport!) While it is undeniably true that I need more training and more practice, (I-just-need-a-five-hour-block-of-time where I can get back into my story!) my mojo hasn't left me, it's just been channeled somewhere of equal value: Teaching!
