Thank you

Thank you for providing this inspirational and generous opportunity

Thank you Slicers for writing your creative, inspired, and imaginative words and responding with generous feedback

Thank you, Adrienne, for nudging me. I am so lucky to call you a dear friend.

Thank you all for opening my heart, soul, and brain to the magic of this writing community

Thank you for the endless ideas that I can bring to teachers and classrooms in our collective and tireless quest to nurture writing motivation, engagement, and, ultimately, love.

Writing changes our lives. Like a pebble in a pond, the ripples reach out and touch others to change the world.

“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.” This quote from Anne Frank represents what I have come to realize through this 31 day commitment. It has opened my world to a more contented place. I even revealed that to my husband this morning 🙂

For all of this I am beyond grateful.

And from Anne Frank to Devin K. in Virginia, “We’re all just stories in the end, just make it a good one.”

  1. Ohhhh– your post just made me teary and that’s hard to do because I’m multi-tasking with reading and watching basketball. I love the way you weaved in Anne Frank. I’m so glad you took on the challenge and got so much out of it!

    1. I’m beyond thrilled I made you teary! 😉 Honestly, Melanie, this experience had been life-changing. I am beyond grateful for this incredile community and can’t wait to stay connected on Tuesdays. 31 days already?!
