I couldn't figure out what to write today. Lately, it feels like I have all of these questions swirling around in my head, so I just started to write them down. This is what happened...kind of cool! I didn't want to write this morning, but I didn't want to miss sharing a slice MORE. Showing up and developing a writing ritual created this piece of writing.

Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it.

  1. Love this thought the thought of this - showing up and developing a writing ritual! How easy it is for us to just not show up and not write! Bravo for you!

  2. I love how you lead by example- showing up even when you thought you did not have anything to write- and then you did! I love the way it came together.

  5. This slice made me smile, Michelle. You led me to my OLW Joy. This line resonates with me: "Showing up and developing a writing ritual created this piece of writing." Rituals and routines are important in life.

  6. I feel like you and I have been dancing around the "How are there people who won't read?" question a lot lately. I know it's focused on a singular person, but the issue is so much bigger. Those who can read and choose not to are making a conscious decision and that is quite scary.
