Rejiggering… again


So way back last year, I tried to manage two different blogs with Not For All Markets (life and non-fiction) and Ghost & Shadows (fiction and the writing life) but even though I do function on a shitload several different levels (parent, writer, editor/cheerleader), I’m still just the one person and dividing myself up on the internets was the bridge that broke the bloggers’ brain.

So now I’m back to just the one blog. For those who followed Ghosts and those who followed Markets, and wish to continue, I can now be found here at kathleenmcclure.com.*

Fiction, rants, observations and roof raising will all happen here at The 10th Muse (never say I can’t embrace a concept).

Me, if I were a Super Hero

Me, if I were a Super Hero

*It would have been kathymcclure.com, as my kids suggested, but it was taken so I went with my full name instead.**

**Side note, a great thing about my name is it’s like, six names in one. Kathleen, Kathy, Kate, Katie, K.T. and Kat (but really, I could never pull that one off).***

***Thanks, Mom!

Davis families, at long last, Davis Dolphin Tales 2012-13 is available on Amazon for Kindle and Kindle apps, here.

Formatting continues on the print on demand edition, and there are some administrative kinks to work out with Nook, but I will post as soon as each becomes available.

For now, go to Amazon’s Kindle store and get a load of what 370 elementary students can do.

Here’s a smattering of knowledge the students picked up during the year. I am not ashamed to say I now know more about the octopus than I ever did before, even after watching all those Jacques Cousteau specials back in the day.

~~~~~

Natural sciences:

She (the mother octopus) braids the eggs together to about four inches.
Nicole – 1st Grade

To eat, the sea star turns inside out.
Cade – 1st Grade

The octopus has good eyesight.
Georgia – 1st Grade

~~~

On the literary front:

The title of my reading book is “The Ghosts Grave.” The author’s name is Peg Kehret. The genre is horror/ mystery. My summary is “Aunt Ethel! No! you’ll blow a hole in the house.” BAM! My opinion is this is the best book I’ve read. There is a ghost in this story with a missing leg.

Sophie – 3rd Grade

And Anthropology:

As the temps soar and the humidity fogs our glasses, let’s take a moment to appreciate the students who love Autumn.

It’s my favorite season, too!

~~~~~~~~

In my family if we collect hard, brown, and round acorns. My parents pay us.01 per acorn or $2.50 a large bucket. In my yard this can keep you as busy as a bee, and as rich as a millionaire!
Gretchen – 4th Grade

Autumn is playing with my friends
Raking autumn leaves
Wearing hat and scarves
And, reading spooky stories.
By Raven – 2nd Grade

Don’t you just adore autumn? I think it is the best and loveliest season. I love autumn as much as a caterpillar likes chewing on a leaf.
Thomas – 4th Grade

Dolphin Tales Teaser #1


Kathy McClure:

A little hint of what’s waiting in the ether for Davis families.

Originally posted on Davis Dolphin Tales 2012-13:

As promised, here’s a sample of the chilling short story “The Girl with the Knife,” written by 4th grader Ellie. I wouldn’t read the entire story before bed time.

Seriously.

 

~~~~~~~~~~

“Do it Lila, do it,” they chanted.

“No way am I ever going into that house!” I yelled.

All day Hazel and Stacy had been egging me on, on a dare to go in to Rachel Miller’s old house.

“Fine,” I said. “I’ll do it, but only if you guys come with me,” I said stubbornly.

“Okay” they exclaimed cheerily. I forgot they liked scary stuff.

“Well come on Lila lets go,” Stacy said.

“Not yet,” I said. “First I have to get some stuff ,so meet me at midnight,” I yelled as they walked back to their houses.

Darn, its midnight.

What’s Happening at Dolphin Tales


Originally posted on Davis Dolphin Tales 2012-13:

The Good News
Davis Elementary is the educational home to hundreds of talented and prolific students, many of whom have shared their class work AND freelance creations.

The Bad News
With over 400 individual entries into Dolphin Tales,  and still more coming in at the last minute, even limited editing (and the editor’s laundry piling up) will take us past the last day of school.  The book will be completed, but it will not be online for the last day of school.

The Important News
While summer vacation kicks off, the editor and volunteer proofreaders will be going over the book to ensure each student’s privacy has been protected, before putting the book online.

When Dolphin Tales 2012-13 becomes available, a mass email will be sent out to every parent on our class list.

You may also keep up to date by subscribing to this blog, where the publication will…
