I am writing

And writing. And writing. And not really knitting. Just writing. And then second guessing myself. The way I write for kids is well, playful. I try to make it sound like we are having a conversation. And well, this is school stuff, I don't want it to bore everyone. But I am second guessing what the boss wants, as well as whether or not my style fits in with all the other writers (there are 10 of us total). Because if mine is the only playful one, it would be easier for me to change than for everyone else to change. Right?
And so it goes.................................
(just a hint- my writing is on a science unit called Structures-form and function; I called it.....
"Structures will wobble but they shouldn't fall down." )
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

My experience is that people (kids or grown-ups) will listen and learn more if the speaker/writer is on the light-hearted side.

I agree with commenter number 1. Also I love the title of your unit.

I know I'd rather read something with a bit of a pun; even bad ones. Than dry text.

I think it sounds great.

P.S. I haven't even thought about school yet. Must start soon!
