I always tell my students that the hardest part about writing is not writing. And the scariest thing in the world to a writer is a blank page. So, here I am, hesitating about what to write … and staring at a blank screen.
I am starting this blog as a way to record my experiences as a teacher and a writer — just one one problem: It’s July; it’s summertime, which means I’m not teaching. So, I’ll use this month and a half before my classes resume to get to know the blog-o-sphere, to think and plan for the upcoming school year, and to reflect on poetry in general.
So, if you are out there and you have a favorite poetry blog, teaching blog or writing prompt, let me know. And … keep writing 🙂
