Slice # 3 - Writing Goals
Last year, I signed up for Teachers Write, on Kate Messner's blog, but it started right during our vacation...so I didn't follow through.
This year, I signed up for Teachers Write, and it started right during our vacation...but, I have set goals, and I think it will be an amazing journey!
This week, we are in the mountains of Montana along Rock Creek River in a one-room cabin. Wi-fi will be limited, but won't hinder my summer writing journey. It will enhance it.
I have a bit of a rule-follower personality, so I have learned to take advantage of this and set rules for myself.
Rule #1: Join in with Teachers Write whenever I can.
This means, I give myself permission to not attend perfectly, the way
I like to do things.
Catch up if I've missed a day.
Read the post when I'm in town.
Write when I can.
Rule #2: Keep up with my writer's notebook by writing every single day.
This means, no excuses for not writing something.
I can repeat a quick-write.
I can hone in on my observation skills.
Take advantage of this beautiful place with such clean air, beautiful
scenery, roaring rivers, and wondrous creatures. observe. write.
Rule #3: If I need something more - keep working through The Writing Book
by Kate Grenville.
I don't remember where I saw it recommended or I'd give you credit.
It is helping me to keep unlocking the subconscious ideas I already
hold within me.
Rule #4: Enjoy my family - after all, this is vacation!
These are my writing goals for this summer, and I anxiously await my journey.
