As I close out this 31st day of slicing, I find myself appreciating the challenge once again. There’s always something about completing a goal you’ve set for yourself. But even more, the payback I have received as a teacher as a result of writing ever day is priceless.
Experiencing first hand what we ask students to do over the course of the school year has value. It reminds me that there are days you don’t feel like writing. Days where things just don’t flow. Days you stare at a blank screen (or page) and feel zero inspiration.
There are also days where you have too many ideas to choose from. Days where there are so many ways a story could unfold. Days where the writing just has a rhythm.
Remembering that you’ll have to write each day and finding a way to collect stories throughout your days and weeks and practicing calling upon them at a later date is first hand research for us as teachers.
Once again, I say thank you to the SOLSC team for infusing such value into my life as an educator! Until next year!
