Thank you to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Tara, Beth, Anna, Kathleen & Deb for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it. Join us at Two Writing Teachers.
It was an ordinary Tuesday,
the chat on google hangout during last block
a student cadet AND a student teacher helping out during first block
a friend and her son popping in during a walk to say hello
an email from the superintendent
a phone call from my niece
a friend quoting me on twitter
it hit seventy degrees
finding out that Doug Flutie will be competing on Dancing with the Stars
This is what I love about being a writer. Days like this would normally pass with no fanfare. Ordinary. Normal. When I sit down to write, those ordinary moments become the juicy moments of my life.
Today I was talking with friends about slicing. We were sharing about all things "slicing". When one friend expressed concern about being good enough, I said, Show up and tell your story. That's why we are all here. We each have stories to tell. Our stories, like life, are messy and sometimes sad, other times joyful, and at times dull...but they are our stories and it's our job to share the messy with the world.
