A Little of This; A Little of That

Here we go.

A little background: This isn't the first blog post I've done. I've attempted it once before, when I seriously thought I could do ONE EVERY DAY. You know those 30 day blog challenges? Well, that's SO NOT ME! At least not 30 in a row. It was too overwhelming, so I just stopped doing it. It was ONE MORE THING to do. If you're a teacher, you know that feeling.  I know myself better now and have more realistic expectations. If I were to do a 30 day blog challenge now it most certainly wouldn't be 30 days IN A ROW! Good grief...

I enjoy reading. I have a Bachelor's in English....because I ENJOY READING! I had to choose a major (insert eyeroll), so that's what I chose and why I chose it. Well..... the writing..... It seemed I did my best work the night before the paper was due.  PROCRASTINATORS UNITE!!

I've never really enjoyed writing. I did it, because I was expected to. An LA teacher who doesn't enjoy writing? That's what this summer is about - changing my mindset. I would like to think I'll come to enjoy it. Another teacher and I have the same goal for next year: reader/writer workshop. I signed up for CISD Litcamp and loved it! Well, I loved the reading part of it. The writing part...Well, you DID see the name of my blog? RELUCTANT WRITER. Who would want to read what I write? What if I don't have anything to say? Anyway, there it is.

I've also signed up for Teachers Write 2016. Hopefully, this will give me some structure to sit down and write AND some ideas for writing topics.

If you made it through this, THANK YOU!
