Brave Writer Retreat Recap on Periscope

Okay, first things first! Here’s the link to my Brave Writer Retreat Resources page that I mentioned in the Periscope I just finished. I’m still adding links and books to this page—things that came up in the course of our discussions at the BW Retreat. For some reason the comments are broken on it, but you can leave questions here on the blog, or ping me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

I just finished a scope on the glorious time I had at the retreat, which you can view here: Popping on Periscope after a long hiatus and invigorating Brave Writer Retreat.  I’m listening to the replay right now and it seems to be a bit spotty—some gaps in the recording here and there? Not sure what’s up with that. But you’ll get the gist. 🙂 And as usual we veered down a lot of rabbit trails. Scrivener, Hobonichi, Gotham Adventures, loads of things.

After SDCC, I’ll get myself back into a regular Periscope habit (and I think it’ll be fun to do some scoping from Comic-Con itself!). So many good topics and questions came up during the retreat, things like building habits and read-aloud strategies and comics suggestions and “towooshuns”—tons of juicy stuff I’d like to address both here and on Periscope. So stay tuned for that. I’ve returned from Cincinnati rejuvenated and eager to talk more about Tidal Homeschooling and comics and kidlit and habits and, oh, everything!

Things I mentioned in the ‘scope:

Scott’s Gotham Adventures books



Hobonichi Cousin (my planner)

Wild Simplicity Daybook (here’s a post I wrote about it)

Midori Traveler’s Notebook (featured in my Planner Love post)

    swooping in to say Hullo Hullo 🙂 I don’t do periscopes and whatnots — social media these days! So far out stripping my ability to keep up ha! No worries. Always lovely to see chattery posts about your days and doings. 🙂

    Ellie, so good to hear from you! I’ve just been catching up over at your place, too, as you’ll have seen from my comment. Re Periscope: watching chatty videos may not appeal, but in case you didn’t know, I’ll say that they’ve improved things and you can now easily view scopes after the fact–so it becomes a lot like watching YouTube, only with viewer questions popping up on the screen. Julie Bogart’s almost-daily Periscopes are marvelous. I’m going to try to get back in the habit once SDCC is over.
