Writing and the FEAR of the blank page…

You know that feeling, the blank white page staring you in the face… and the blank mind that answers it with no inspiration.  Ugh…I feel it, you feel it, just think what a child feels when they are faced with the daunting task of having to fill a page with creative writing.

The best way to head off this situation is by using prewriting activities. You can get your homeschooler thinking by reading an inspiring book, or talking about an inspiring location, or even by reading an example of creative writing similar to what you are expecting from your students. Incorporating these activities into your homeschool curriculum is the easiest way to alleviate the fear. Prewriting activities get the creative juices flowing. They are the fodder from which your child’s creative juices can feed!

Giving your child the gift of confidence as a creative writer may unlock unimaginable doors of potential.
