ICYMI: Discovering the Writer’s Life Blog Series Recap

Discovering the Writing Life Blog SeriesIs it difficult to consider yourself a writer? As I read the post in this series, I related to each of my co-author’s posts.  Finding yourself a reader seems natural to many of us, but calling yourself a writer is personal and involved.  Each post highlighted a different aspect of what it means to be a writer and I am sure you found yourself in these post. In case you missed it:

  • On Monday, Dana shared a post about using a class anchor chart of writing ideas in order to sustain writing all year long.
  • On Tuesday, Kathleen posted how she breathes new life into writer’s notebooks.
  • On Wednesday, Stacey posted about how field trips can be used in the service of writing poetry.
  • On Thursday, Tara posted about how she uses the writing community within her classroom to explore social issues around the world.
  • On Friday, I posted about how writing helps me empathize with the writers in my classroom.
  • On Saturday, Betsy posted how she uses artifacts and photos to inspire writing.
  • On Sunday, Beth wrapped up the blog series with her post about how we can draw inspiration from book characters who are writers.
