SOL15 I Can Only Try 1/31


The March Slice of Life Story Challenge –  An Online Writing Experience Hosted by The Two Writing Teachers

Here it goes… But… What if…?

I want to be the best literacy teacher I can be.  I tell my students that in order to improve at anything, we have to practice.  I know that I need to practice my own writing!  I tell my students that they’ll only fail if they don’t try.  I know that I’ll only fail at this writing challenge if I don’t try.

Here is my promise to myself:   I will try to write.  Every day in March.

Every day in March?!?!?  I want to write.  I really do.  I tell myself that I’ll make time to write.  I tell myself that I won’t find excuses not to write.  I tell myself that I’ll find enough to write about.  I tell myself that I won’t fail.

But…  What if I really don’t have time to write?  What if I forget to write?  What if I choose not to write?  What if no one likes what I write?  What if no one wants to read what I write?  What if my writing is not good enough?

The truth is… I’m a little (or maybe a lot) scared to write…

I can only try!
