Today is my 28th slice for the March Slice of Life Challenge on Two Writing Teachers.
Thank you Ruth for this opportunity (and reminder) to celebrate this blessing called life!
This week I started reading Austin Kleon's book Show Your Work. Reading it was one of those experiences where I felt like he could have begun every sentence with, "Michelle..." It seemed like it was written for ME!
I decided to take a leap and FLY after reading some of this book. He strongly suggests that you "build a good name" and part of that is claiming your name online. I did it. Here's Michelle Haseltine dot com: michellehaseltine.com! This makes me SO nervous to share this!! I worry that people will think, "Why do YOU need a website?!?!" but I'm doing this despite the fear. I also know that the community that reads this blog is so wonderfully supportive... and that is helping me walk to the edge and spread my wings. I don't know what this will lead to, but I'm celebrating the fact that I am FLYing into this new way of sharing my work with the world. Thank you to Holly for the book recommendation!
Today I am presenting at the Language and Learning Conference which is sponsored by our local writing project, NVWP! I'm sharing a completely new presentation about Writing in the Digital World. Wish me luck! Have a wonderful Saturday and thank you for celebrating with me!!
