Chloe’s I SEE sentences. She kept track of everything she was seeing as her family traveled to Yosemite. She’s leading the wide awake life and using all the literacy skills she’s acquired in her first 5 years of life. I see a reader and writer looking at me says Nani.

HOW TO ACTIVATE MUSCLE MEMORY: FIRST DRAFT WRITING AND PITCHING. Ohlendorf’s “Old-Timey” Honnis Wagner Era Pitch (A 420 Character, 9-Line Poem)

1ST DRAFTS COME FROM “JUST” MOVING MY PEN ACROSS THE PAGE.

I WRITE AND WAIT TO SEE THE IDEAS THAT EMERGE.

IT’S LIKE WHAT ROSS OHLENDORF’S DOES

AS HE MOVES THROUGH HIS OLD-TIMEY ROCKING CHAIR PITCH:

OVER THE HEAD, SPLIT HANDS,

IT’S OLD FASHIONED; LOOSENS HIM UP, GIVES HIM A RYTHMN,

FREES HIS MIND, AND LETS HIS BODY FIGURE OUT THE BEST PATH TO TAKE

TO THROW THE BALL WHERE HE WANTS IT TO GO. GIVES MOMENTUM.

1ST DRAFTS.

PATTY
