A Guilty Slice
I am failing my own Creative Writing class. I require my kids to write every day. And those Creative Writing 2 kids, they have to write a blog post three times a week.
But I don't.
And those tweets, #, make me feel guilty.
Because I do believe that if you teach reading and writing, then you ought to be a reader and a writer.
I'm doing great on the reading. Every day I carve out time to read (and I've read some amazing books this year), but the writing just hasn't happened. I keep making these promises to my blog that I will write more,
but I lie.
And I don't write.
Soon I will turn the calendar page and realize that it's almost March. A time I love to write. But my writing muscles are weak, pathetic really. I need to start exercising them if I plan on writing every day for a month. I need to write. Daily. Blog more. Reflect more. Write more.
They say if you publicly make a promise, you are more likely to follow through.
