National Day on Writing


It's the National Day on Writing!

     Check out the New York Times Article here.


           What I Write

When I write, I make the tunes,
scribble words and create lunes.
To Grandson Carter I send slow mail notes,
For myself, I capture quotes.
To my students, the notes are sticky
Recently I created a wiki
for colleagues with whom I like to share.
We often look for things to care
about - pages sparking conversation
to help us in the demonstration
of the love of learning.  Finally, too
I write only for me, and then for you.

  2. Oh wow, I didn't even know about this National Day of Writing - reminded me of Bradbury who noted that he started writing at age 12 and never stopped until his death. How's the wiki going for you?

  3. Yes, yes, Linda! I have to write for me first...and only then is it true enough to share with you.

    1. Well, obviously I agree. The challenge is that 'other' writing takes so much time. I think I need to get my priorities straight! Thanks, April!
