Julie Bogart is a veteran homeschool mom, professional writer, and the creator of the writing and language arts program Brave Writer.  

She joins us on this episode of the podcast to discuss freewriting, a method for getting the thoughts that are running through one's head down onto paper.  As part of her desire to equip families for the writing process, Julie explores the idea of implementing this practice in the context of Morning Time.

Julie describes a writing environment where children's ideas are respected, the parent-child relationship is valued, and there is only one rule: keep your pencil moving until the timer beeps.

Her step-by-step instructions in how to begin a freewriting habit, including ideas for accommodating non-writers and reluctant writers, are both helpful and reassuring. So grab a pencil and some paper and get ready to enjoy a great interview!
