B.I.C. I believe it is wise advice from Jane Yolen.
B.I.C The way to become a writer.
B.I.C. The focus of a minilesson in kindergarten last week.
B.I.C. Much needed for me today.
If I don’t put B.I.C. in practice today and tomorrow and every other day in the upcoming week, a very bad thing will happen.
I will miss the deadline for Christi’s and my book Celebrating Writers. (I might joke about missing deadlines. But when it comes right down to it, I don’t find it a laughing matter.)
The thing about B.I.C. is it only works if you actually write on the project that needs finished. Slices don’t count. Emails don’t count. Writer’s notebook entries don’t count. And YA projects really don’t count.
I can find many distractions even after B.I.C. So I’m logging off the internet, opening my files, and immersing myself in Celebrating Writers. It will be hours until I emerge.
