Thank you https://twowritingteachers.org/ 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.”

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!

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?!
I loved this post. I especially loved the quote because I found it to be so true. Writing is certainly a type of therapy that I should use more often.

Thank you! I never really “trusted” just how therapeutic it really is. Now I know. No excuses. I look forward to Tuesdays.
We are all just stories. And… to paraphrase such good ones. I’ve enjoyed yours and look forward to Tuesdays.
So glad you joined the #SOLC this year, Lisa! Love the quote, “We’re all just stories in the end, just make it a good one.”
Love…thank you for joining me on this journey. I knew you’d love this experience. Can’t wait to continue….
