“A story is a letter that the author writes to himself, to tell himself things that he would be unable to discover otherwise.”
― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
It is time to write your Slice, share your link, and give some comments to (at least three) other slicers. Our writing community is built on the support and encouragement we offer each other every Tuesday. It’s a sprit best exemplified by slicers like Linda and Elsie, who reach out to so many of us, read thoughtfully, and leave meaningful comments. We are, blessedly so, a large community. So perhaps we could start to “reach out and touch someone” new every Slice of Life Tuesday? Join us!
I teach Writing Workshop, Language Arts and Social Studies to sixth graders at a middle school in suburban New Jersey. This blog is my attempt to capture all the "stuff" that goes into my teaching life - the planning, the dreaming, the reading, the preparing, the hoping and (above all) the kids.
