Terje Äkke (@terjeakke) has been a part of our writing community since 2011. Each year she composes a “Right Now” piece, which was inspired by SouleMama. While I’ve read a lot of Terje’s writing, I hadn’t read one of her “Right Now” pieces ’til last week. I was taken by the positive nature of it, as well as the way it was structured (e.g., punctuation, verbs). Therefore, I wanted to share it with you today.
We’re in the final days of our month-long challenge. Some of you might be feeling like you’re a little spent from this month-long writing marathon. If that’s how you’re feeling today, consider looking at Terje’s writing for a little inspiration today.

OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION:
I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
