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.
