for Cole. One of Darin Johnston's students who is ready to quit. And to the rest of us too.
Writing is hard.
Writing every day. At fourteen days in, it can seem impossible to finish. Some days we all want to quit. Why even try?
But those days pass.
And you put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and write one word. And then another.
Big moments make slices.
- Two of my speech kids were selected to perform at All-State
- The school board voted to accept the retirements last night
And funny happenings in the classroom make slices.
- Mrs. Day, since you know watch more basketball than I do...
- My Creative Writing kids coming up with creative ways to take care of the shoe squeakers
Little moments make slices.
- Listening to the quiet
- Watching snow fall
- Baby smiles
Dogs can write slices :)
Because sometimes having another point of view when writing is a good thing.
The point is you just have to keep trying and keep writing. As I look back on some of my previous years posts, I sometimes cringe. They aren't all masterpieces. Sometimes your slice is going to suck.
BUT YOU WRITE ANYWAY.
