It's been an exciting week of writing! So many people celebrated writing this week by taking part in the NCTE National Day on Writing, which is held every October the 20th. It was neat to see all the #WhyIWrite posts from writers everywhere. To top it all off, we get to celebrate writing even more on this Poetry Friday! You can visit our friend Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect for more of the poetry round-up today.
The poem I am sharing today really expresses one of the very special reasons why I write. I strongly believe that our life in this world is filled with so many wondrous things to write about. For me, I must write to celebrate and honor those things that are truly worthy to be etched in my notebook forever. Writing is like breathing to me, both necessary and essential to my being. It's why these words are here for you today.
Invitation to Write:
Writers, we all have our reasons for writing. Some reasons we may share, while others are unique to us alone. Take a moment to think about the reasons you have for writing. What are those thoughts and words from you that must find their way into the world? Why do you write?
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.
