of (hopefully!) thirty-one!
I’m excited to try this out! In the summer of 2011, I participated in the Summer Institute of my local branch of the National Writing Project. I NEVER thought of myself as a writer, and I knew that needed to change if I was going to teach writing. Sadly, the course only lasted two weeks. I just started getting comfortable with the idea of getting comfortable of writing and being a part of a writing community. I realized one of the reasons I don’t write is because I don’t share it- and I don’t want to reread what I write!
So I got in a groove and then after the Institute, I stopped. Most people just kind of fell off- no more comments, much less posts on our blogs. But I want that to change! I want to jump back in to a writing community, and this seems like such a great way! I have a busy month up ahead, so hopefully I can keep this up!
