Writing is great way to take some stress out of Screen-Free Week. Start a journal and write about all the fun things you are doing while free from screens. I've had a journal for about 10 years and it's turned into a New Year's tradition. Every year on the 1st, I start a new journal. You could try your hand at the Great American Novel! Write a story and show your teacher or try to get it published in a local publication. Have you heard of pen pals? This is when you write letters back-and-forth to people your own age with similar interests. It's very interesting to write letters overseas and find out how others live. There are many pen pal websites where you can find a pen pal and get writing. It's very fun to receive letters in the mail!! Finally, you could write letters to family members or jot down a few verses of poetry. There are all kinds of things to do with a mere pencil and a piece of paper.
