I love the beginning of each new season, but there is something about the way spring enters that really takes my breath away. Everything in life seems refreshed and renewed. It is so much fun to walk around my yard and see everything in nature brimming with new life. It makes me think of how exciting it is when things are just beginning. I have come to appreciate new beginnings for giving me the strength and hope to begin again. As a writer, it really energizes me to think about each blank page as the beginning of something wonderful.
Invitation to Write:
Think about the way things begin. It could be the beginning of a season, a new year, the first day of school, or even a time that you tried something new. Write from those feelings, thoughts, and memory of those moments when something felt new.
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.
