TwoWritingTeachers.wordpress.com have an annual writing challenge. Today I'm joining other "slicers" to share a slice of my life! 31 days of writing...it could be terrifying! It could be hard! It could be the best thing I've ever done for my writing self! So allow me to introduce myself with an original acrostic poem, "A First Time Slicer" by me!!
A First Time "Slicer"
by Beth Cook
A Twitter chat invite becomes...a 31 day writing challenge!
Freeing to be able to capture a "slice" of life
Inviting my peers and friends to walk beside me during this journey
Reconnecting with the writer, within
Scared- what if they don't like my writing
Taking a leap of faith!!
Trusting the process
Important for my students to see me as a writer
Modeling my failures and successes
Excited to see how my writing changes and grows!
So here I go
Looking at the opportunity before me
Including my students in the challenge
Could have thought this more through before I said yes. :)
Even though I'm nervous...
Ready for this challenge!
