On March 1, I'm going to join the Slice of Life challenge from Two Writing Teachers. As a long-time advocate for engaging, meaningful, joyful writing instruction, I'm thrilled: it's a chance to focus on my own stories and "have a go" at some of the skills I'm working on with teachers & students. As a full-time working mom who doesn't always rock stick-to-it-tiveness, I'm nervous, scared and worried, too. But this is the work of life -- jumping in and paddling as fast as I can, then trying to find a decent rhythm that keeps me from drowning. And maybe I'll even create a habit, by the time March 31 rolls around. Thanks, Two Writing Teachers, for your commitment to creating writers!
