The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

I never realized how scary it is to write something that others are going to read until I made a commitment to do just that.  I write in my notebook every chance I get.  I feel joy. It’s always been a way for me to process, try things out, or work things out.   However, I am taking it a step further.  I am writing for others to read.  What does that mean?  I’m not sure.  I let kids read my work any time of day.  I feel safe.  I guess because I’m asking them to do the same.  I read their work.  It just seems “normal” for them to read mine.  They’re also kind about it.  It’s hard for them to push back and offer suggestions.  Maybe I haven’t shared how to do this.  Hmmm.

Now, I’m joining a writing community and I feel vulnerable.  I am putting the pen to the paper.  I know I will grow, not only as a writer or a teacher but as an individual learner.  And for that, I will look beyond the pages and embrace the journey.
