Day 1 of 31. That statement makes this endeavor daunting. Maybe I should say Day 31 of Day 31 and count down. The little tricks we can play with our mind- just to make “things” or “it” a little easier. So- I am taking on the 31 days of writing challenge. Why? A couple of reasons. The first reason is to become a better teacher of writing. How can I teach something that I do not experience? How can I actually feel the dread of the blank page that the students feel if I do not have that same experience or that same dread? I want to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.
The second reason I am taking up this challenge is because I need to get out of my comfort zone. Our habits become us. My habits of late are not.. what I would say? Not what I would like to become. I want to be productive. Writing could be productive.
Writing could be eye opening. Writing could be soothing. Writing could be… Day 1 of 31. Completed.
