Write about what your everyday life offers you; describe your sorrows and desires, the thoughts that pass through your mind and your belief in some kind of beauty. Rilke
Have you written something I have read? What are you writing now?
The questions I get when I tell people I’m a writer.
Or then there are the suggestions…
Why don’t you write a young adult novel? You can make a lot of money that way. Or something spiritual. People like spiritual books. You could write about your teaching experiences.
For quite a while I felt I needed to answer these people. I should be writing something for them to read. And maybe their ideas are something to consider.
I write morning pages…and sometimes afternoon pages…or evening pages.
I post a quote on Facebook.
I respond to my quote on WordPress.
I write reflections after visiting classrooms and teaching classes.
I send email.
I attend a weekly writing group.
I go to workshops and conferences on writing.
I give workshops on writing.
I am a writer.
Oh, and I read…
