Hi all! I haven’t done a Starcat’s Favorites post for quite some time, my weekends having been filled up with all sorts of fun events lately. Ah, Spring! It’s great to get out and enjoy the world without freezing my toes off. I’ve also been focused on writing a new e-book, and really enjoying my creative process.
Over the past month or so, I’ve still been reading blogs and articles, especially on subjects I’ve been excited about, so I saved up some links to share with you. Enjoy!

As I said, I’ve really been enjoying my writing time. Here are a couple of great posts to help writers…or those who want to write:

Every writer eventually runs into writer’s block. Here are some awesome ideas to help get around it.
Another thing I’m passionate about is education, and unschooling in particular. You may even have seem my friends the Martins on Wife Swap. Here are four articles on the (r)evolution of education, as it is unfolding right now:
We can learn a lot from just living in and exploring our amazing world. Technology can support this.
Not only will unschoolers be “prepared for the real world,” they’ll be out there creating it!
Here are some common myths about unschooled kids. In such a diverse community, it’s not really helpful to buy into stereotypes.
Have a fun weekend, and follow your passions where ever they lead you!
