Two Writing Teachers
JOY. My One Little Word for 2013. And since the beginning of the year I've intentionally looked for those little things that bring JOY to my life.
Passion in my speech kids
the growing reading lives of my freshmen
All of them have given me little moments of JOY. But all of them were given TO me.
I haven't created the JOY.
SOLSC gives me a chance to create my own joy, because, you see, writing gives me JOY.
I play with words
I try new forms
I explore ways to use text
I use my words to share a moment
So, here's hoping that others enjoy what I write and can feel the JOY I do as I write these slices.
Here's a little Twitter poem I wrote back in January as I wrote with my kids. It's also how I felt when I first joined this challenge:
Afternoon in Creative Writing
Must write my life
In front of an audience.
No place to hide.
