Oh, happy day! It's Poetry Friday! Find more Poetry Friday goodies at Katie's space The Logonauts. Thanks for hosting, Katie!
This week I am sharing a poem about a topic that I am drawn to and write often about. Having a list of magnet topics can be a great tool to help you jump start your writing. It can also serve as a sounding board to help you figure out what you really want to say.
Birds are a magnet topic for me because I find myself writing about them over and over again in different ways. All sorts of birds live in my notebook, but one of my very favorites is the chickadee.
Invitation to Write:
Writers often return to topics they care about again and again. Topics are never used up. We can always find something new to say about our magnet topics. Often times, we can count on these go-to topics whenever we feel stuck and can't decide what to write about. Try using one of your magnet topics as a spring board to get your writing flowing today. Stretch yourself to write about your topic in a way you have not done before. Magnet topics can help you attract all kinds of new words and ideas down on paper!
Welcome! I'm Kiesha Shepard, and I have a love for writing and the teaching of writing. Whispers From the Ridge is a place where I can share my words and ideas for teaching writing. It's also a place for you to find inspiration for writing the words inside of you. I invite you into my world of writing as I capture the whispers from the ridge.
