Committed to Writing

Join the Slice of Life Tuesday @Two Writing Teachers

This is my first time joining Slice of Life. I've committed to writing each and every day, so I thought I'd post in Slice of Life on day three of writing. I'm thinking how very hard it is to be a writer - not even a good writer, but just a writer. I ask my students to write daily. If I ask them to do it, why shouldn't I? I know that it is important for my students to write every day in order to become better writers. This is why I've committed. Kathleen had a post on Two Writing Teachers calling for teachers to join together in a conversation about writing daily, and because I have been a follower of hers for a while and really admire her, I was motivated to improve myself...It is January and I should have a resolution, right? I don't know that anything I write will be worthwhile, but I'll never know if I don't try. Then there's putting it out there for the world to see. I post on this blog, but not very regularly. I'm in awe of the blogs I read - I am always so impressed with how knowledgeable these people are and how much they have to say and share with the world. Hopefully, if I write daily, I will come to see myself as a writer, and I will have more to say and share that will hopefully inspire, help, or make a connection with other teachers.
