Joining Teachers Write




I wasn't going to do it.  I'm plenty busy.  In fact, I'm trying to not be so busy.  I've got lots of different writing going on...participating in #clmooc and DigitLit Sundays and I do my best to do Slice of Life and Celebration Saturdays. I am part of an online teacher writing group hosted by Two Writing Teachers.  Oh, and I'm doing the Teacher ThingLink challenge.  I'm doing plenty.

Then I started reading others' posts about joining in.  Links to Kate Messner's blog pop up on Twitter and Facebook.  I'd check them out, but then tell myself that I didn't need to add anything else to my plate.
I went back and forth for a week...
"Oh, this would be fun!"
"No, no more writing groups."
Deep down, I knew that I wasn't going to be able to stay away.

I read Jen Vincent's post last night and felt myself waver.  I read Kate's post this morning and I was convinced.  I wanted to be part of Teachers Write. So right then and there, I clicked, "Join."

You see, I find a lot of joy in writing.  And I'm having a blast with all the different kinds of writing I'm doing this summer.  Much of the writing I do is about my practice:  all nonfiction.  I don't do much writing just for myself and I decided that I wanted to stretch myself just a bit more.  Kate's mini lesson seemed doable and just the kind of writing I want to do more of.  I know that I'll be able to take what I learn back into the classroom to teachers in my building too. (I keep forgetting that I have a different job this school year).

Check it out.  It's not too late to join, as you can see from the warm reception I got from the Facebook group this morning.  :)

  1. It is funny that we are doing all the same things this summer. I am trying not to feel overwhelmed. But as you do, I find the connections and conversations stimulating. Let's commit to support each other in all these things we are doing. It helps so much to have a friend (even a cyber-friend) out there.

  2. I’m engaged in some “line lifting” this morning, where I am stealing lines and phrases and themes from my blogging friends, and building poems around then. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me, and allowing me a chance to remix. I do it out of honor for you.

    Stretch:
    the writer yawns
    taking in the words dancing to the tune
    of some forgotten song;
    finding joy in the unknown
    as if the pen were a compass
    to a place, unknown,
    uncharted,
    the map becoming visible
    only after the journey has begun.
