A few post ago I talked about switching gears without actually switching gears. I have a lot to say. I like thinking about it and laying something out. The problem is we do not change each others minds. We invigorate like-minded people and opposite minded people and keep them apart with arguments.
So then what shall I talk about. The intention was to talk about writing. I may have posts about writing and self-publishing. The problem I see is that others cover that.
And here is a hint about being a writer. You need to have a platform and on that platform, you give your audience what they want. You preach to the choir and write the way they like you to write. The other thing you need to do is connect.
I don’t know that I plan to do that. Because my plan is to write about what I know. I am a teacher of young people that have mental health and behavioral issues. So I will write about that. Actually, my plan is to steal things i write for a treatment group that i run. My focus though is not on fixing mental issues, but in presenting information that everyone needs to know.
In addition to children with mental illness. I teach children with autism. That is the main focus to my job.
Here is a funny scene:
My boss was talking about how being a special ed. Teacher you think your kid has every syndrome there is. She said I thought my child had this and that.
I agreed with her. I said I used to think that my child had autism. Then I found out I was right.
So I have read up on autism. I’m not an expert, but ive read the experts.And if I think of something worthwhile on the subject, I will post it.
