Writing is Hard

There is a writer in
everyone, even me!
Composing a daily slice is hard work. Sometimes it is scary, taking risks with my writing and my topics. But it is a promise I made to myself. And now, I see myself differently as a writer and teacher of young writers.  My commitment to assisting children to write daily and find the power in their words is reaffirmed.

 I feel like I'm a baby in this whole writing thing. And now my head swirls with ideas of how to use my new learning. It is exciting to think about how much more I want to learn. I feel like I'm just getting started.


  1. Sooooo, true. And it's been very exciting to take those first steps holding someone's hand...
    I enjoy reading your posts and look forward to reading more from you.

  2. I feel the same way. I can't wait to read more from you and see those pictures! Hope to see you Tuesday!

  3. Yes, a little scary - but then what a sense of accomplishment when you take a step. We learn so much about teaching when we become students again. Thank you for writing everyday!

  4. Diane, I have enjoyed reading your posts. You have made me laugh and also reflect. Writing is risky, but I have enjoyed learning from you and others. I plan to check in on your blog still. Will you be writing about baseball at all? MaryHelen

  5. Your photos always add a whole other layer of meaning to your words. I want to harness that. I am looking forward to keeping up with you on Tuesdays!

  6. I think a lot of us see ourselves as babies in this writing challenge. The biggest part is taking a chance and posting things we really think about and then others commenting on our posts. I felt like I was in a lot of mini-workshops this month. Keep growing!!!


Thanks for reading my post. Please leave a comment.
