I had no idea when I began slicing that it would have such an impact on me. I find myself thinking more about writing than ever.
I drive down the street and titles to posts pop in my mind. Words scroll across my face as I stare at the world. I think about writing nonstop. I drive and I wish I could stop and pull over to write down my ideas. They just keep flowing through me.
Now, there are definitely days when I am blank. I have no ideas. It shows in my posts which days I am uninspired.
I am very thankful that I was in the meeting the day that Dana talked about slicing. It is one of the best decisions I have made lately. I am glad that I had this opportunity through my district
It has made me a better teacher too, because I can see through the eyes of my students. I now understand why they have trouble thinking about what they want to write about for the day. I know what it’s like to have writers block. I know what it takes to be inspired.
The comments that I have been receiving on my blog have motivated me so much. I am so appreciative of all the kind things people have said. I have blogged about things that I never ever thought I would open up to because of the comfort people have made me feel through their comments or talks. I feel so safe here. Though I don’t always find the time to comment back, each comment has been read multiple times by me, and I am forever changed by the kindness.
