A kind follower reminded me of that '7 Cardinal Rules of Life' post going around, and they asked me if I would ever do my take on them (that being, a writerly take). Well, seeing as how I’ve been running a Writer Positivity series for over 100 posts, I thought it would be a fun chance to collect some of my favorite advice!

PS: The above are not meant to be taken as ‘literal’ rules for writing, but rather advice for leading the lifestyle of a writer~ ♥︎

Looking for more writerly content? Make sure to follow for your daily dose of writer positivity, advice, and prompts!

Flipping the classroom. The classroom environment makes a difference!

This is cooler than it looks and here’s why: This is part of a video series for the FIZZ approach to flipping, which relies on simple, one-take videos instead of screencasts. It’s a great alternative to flipping for teachers who want to make videos, but don’t want to learn to screencast.

You can learn more about FIZZ here: 

The woman in this video is Katie, an 8th grade math and Algebra I teacher from Raleigh, NC. She has a full set of videos just like this on her YouTube channel:

I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.
