New Post on LWOS — More Digital Natives

I‘m a titch late on this, but a new post went up on LWOS a little while back, part 2 of my Digital Natives discussion.


Go read! Leave comments! Increase my clickrate! LOL!

YAY! I’m on Unschooling Voices!

Check it out, here. This is a reprint of a piece I wrote for LWOS, “Unschooling and the Digital Native”. I’m happy to see it there. It’s posted alongside one of the most moving posts I’ve ever read on a blog, Missy’s brilliant “Chasing Bananas“, which still makes me cry every time I read it.

New Post on LWOS

Wheeeeeee! You’ll find it here.

The clever amongst you will note that the post references a four year old, and Rowan is now five, so clearly that post has been sitting in the queue for a while. ::shrug:: It happens like that sometimes.

More on Unschooling at LWOS

YAY! Another post up at LWOS. Robin, the editor, asked me to write something about why we unschool, in a big-picture kind of way. So here it is:

It’s About Trust


New Post at LWOS

It seems I post more here about posts over there than I do actually write them, but I’m working on it.

Unschooling Nurture:


Anyone paying attention will see that the above post is about me being pregnant. I’m not any more. Which is one of the big things happening that I’m not ready to blog about that I mentioned in the prior post. =) Thanks.

New Post at LWOS

This post, “Day of a Thousand Charms“, was originally posted here, and Robin, the excellent editor of LWOS, asked for reprints. So here it is!

I had a lot of fun with this one, and it’s been approved by a few bona fide Digital Natives. Enjoy!

New Post at LWOS

This post is very, very close to my heart. Happened just the way I wrote it. Check it out here:

Act of Affirmation

Thanks again, Mom.

Carnival of Homeschool Post!

Yay! I’m up, by way of LWOS, at the Carnival of Homeschooling:

From Life Without School Laureen says Gracias, Dora! as Laureen finds that children learn when they are interested and when and from what we may least expect!

Check it out!

This is a post I wrote about the fascinating place where our beliefs about unschooling as a theory hit the serious practicality of a landscaping project. Please check it out, and comment. I need help generating more traffic. =)

New Post at LWOS

Wheee! A seasonal post, even! Hope you guys like it.


New Post on LWOS — Reprise of Financing the Gap

Hey gang, I know I haven’t been posting here; most of my writing oomph is going into my novel for NaNoWriMo. I will be back when November’s over!

In the meantime, I’ve got a new post up at LWOS. It’s a reworked, superior version of a post I launched here, originally, a long time ago. Check it out:




If you haven’t wandered on over there, you should. There is some incredible writing, and some amazing thinking, about the capability of the human spirit. It’s pretty inspirational stuff. Have fun!

New Post on LWOS — Sailing With Rowan

Just a little shameless self-promotion. See it here:

or if it takes you a few days and it’s scrolled down in the posting queue, go here:

Props To Me!

I am totally pleased to announce that I am now a Featured Author on Life Without School, a blog for homeschoolers and unschoolers, to explore what our lives are like.

My premiere post, “Unschooling Birth” is the same as I posted here a few days ago. But this will be the only crossover; all my subsequent work on LWOS will be unique, so if you want to know what I have to say over there, you’ll have to come check in. Please, leave commentary, check it out, and let the blog leaders know that you’re happy to see me there.

In other news, I had a meeting Friday with Beth Adams-Smith and Richard Smith of the Atlantic Cruising Club/Jerawyn Publishing. I will be writing a book with them over the coming year, a Marnia Guide to California. You can check out the other books in the series at the ACC website. This isn’t really a creative writing project, but a travel writing one, and I am beyond ecstatic to be involved in this project. It’s going to allow me all kinds of latitude in exploration and other article opportunities.

So… here I go, leaping into publishing of all kinds of flavors. And thanks to all of you, who’ve been so awesome about nurturing, encouraging, and just being along with this blog, which I started simply to see if I could do it.
