Just write!

I enjoy writing but  look forward with angst, to this challenge every year. When the first day finally arrives, I worry that I will not be able to write. Yesterday, I was able to find something to write about without any problem. Now here I am the second day, having trouble coming up with a topic.

So, I am doing what I always tell my students to do during a free-write. Just start writing about anything. Before you know it, you might start writing about something! And if it doesn’t work for me today, there is always tomorrow!

As a teacher of sixth graders, ma special place is my classroom; my home-away-from-home. My first home I share with my husband, our dog Quincy, two cats, and my tortoise friend, Misha. I also have been blessed with a horse named Arjay. We have three adult children and five grandchildren, the joy of our lives. Life is good. I am an equestrian, a writer, a reader, a gardener, and I repurpose furniture.

  1. You powered past the writer’s block and posted a slice—that’s something to celebrate:) If you get stuck, Christie Wyman created a padlet of writing ideas for the SOL challenge that are great on those days when writer’s block tries to take over. You can access the padlet at https://padlet.com/wymanc/fhn5xjs2w5w8. Christie’s blog is https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/ and she is a great teacher-writer to follow.
