Growing as a Writing

Day 31  #SOL 17  Year 1


Reaching the end of a very interesting month of writing, has led me to some axioms. Below of the principles that I hope to follow as I continue on my writing journey:

  • Don’t become discouraged
  • Continue to write even if you do not have a topic—a line a day
  • Find a writing group for feedback
  • Listen and accept critiques
  • Share your writing with people you trust and admire as readers/writers
  • Share you writing struggles with students
  • Share your joy of writing with students
  • Read works of other writers for inspiration, such as “the Donald’s”
  • Gather inspirational thoughts for each month
  • Liberate yourself through writing
  • Develop a purpose as a writer
  • Explore as a writer


I want to thank all the fellow Slicers who offered feedback and inspiration.  Your words of encouragement meant so much!  I hope we can continue to interact and encourage one another along our writing journey.   Looking forward to April!

    I am taking a screenshot of your list and sharing it with my students as a springboard for our SOL reflections. (I hope that’s okay with you.) I have really enjoyed getting to read your thoughts each day, and thank you for so many kind, thoughtful comments on my blog. Happy April!
