As I plan a new school year I have been particularly focused on how to improve my teaching of writing. I can't think deeply about writing without reflecting on my own writing life. The final nudge into a writing blog was given by Two Writing Teachers, in particular their Slice of Life Story Challenge. I encourage you to take the challenge as well, even if you don't post it for the world to see. Thus begins my journey of posting bits of my writing notebook on the web, a Writing eNotebook is born.
