I've been writing every day for the last 25 days like so many of my fellow slicers. It was easier when I just had a Tuesday post to work towards. In less than a week we will have completed our month long commitment to writing something every day. I took this challenge to see if I could write every day, no matter how busy I might become.
As a fifth grade teacher, it's helped me see the world of writing from the view point of student writers. I have them write slices on our class blog each Tuesday. At times they struggle with topics or ideas, but they also craft amazing entries giving insight into their life and thoughts. I find myself doing the same. Looking back on my posts, I find some that speak volumes and others that fall flat. I welcome comments from fellow slicers and know my class enjoys the comments others make as well.
Writing isn't always perfect. It takes practice. Writers thrive when they write for a purpose and can share their work with a wider audience. That's what write each day in March has reaffirmed for me.
