|Generated a tagxedo which captured the big ideas in my blog for this past month|
Over the past 31 days I have been thinking about how I sustain this habit. Writing daily is exercising, just for your mind instead of your heart, or maybe a little of both. Writing is a way of processing life, work, reading, writing, thinking, parenting and just managing. Writing and sharing my writing has unintended effects, such as inspiring other writers in my life, Jenny, Dale, and my daughter to name a few.
Participating in the SOLC encouraged me to challenge to my students in May. They need to feel the power of their words. Participating made me realize that I need to keep writing. I profess that I would rather read than write. I know that if I truly want to continue to cultivate writers or teachers of writers, I must keep writing. Participating reminded me of the challenges that writers face daily. It is not easy.
Ultimately I have been overwhelmed by the number of people who actually read my blog. Thank you for taking time out of your day to peek into mine. Just liking, commenting, or stopping by, your visits mattered. I didn't realize that it would. I had forgotten the power of an audience and the impact that readers have on a writer. It made me want to be better.
