Slice of Life Challenge
Please join the challenge over at Two Writing Teachers!
Including today, there are nine days left in the SOLC. I'm sad. Writing everyday has been a challenge, but with each day it's gotten easier...and it became fun!
This month has changed me in ways I never imagined. I sliced last year...but I didn't really engage. This year, I feel like I belong here. This group of writers inspires me everyday to write my very best, because it's what they give on their blogs. This group of writers shows unimaginable kindness when a blog post touches on a sensitive subject. To have an audience such as this to read my writing, has built my confidence and taught me so much...about writing, about life, about myself.
I want THIS experience for my students in class. I strive to create this exact atmosphere where they start out scared and wondering, "Am I good enough?" And leave confident that they can call themselves a writer.
It makes me sad that this month is almost over...I know, we have Tuesdays and many of us post throughout the week...I just don't want to lose the connections we've made.
