I’m overwhelmed (in a good way) with the flood of responses to the question I posed on Tuesday. Thank you for responding with such thought about the way your writing instruction has been impacted by being a Writer. While I cannot use all of your comments in my keynote, I am certainly going to infuse several of them into my speech, attributing them accordingly. I will also be sharing a link (to Tuesday’s blog post) in the PowerPoint that will accompany my keynote so audience members can read through all of the wonderful things you had to say.
Right now my keynote is 15 pages and 37 minutes long, which is on-track in terms of length. However, it needs some revisions. Thank you to everyone who reminded me WHY they write and HOW it impacts instruction. That will certainly help me as I revise this week.
