Celebrate the National Day on Writing! #WhatIWrite
I write… a lot. I blog every day on a private, family-only blog I created for my daughter when she was born. I blog about the teaching of writing here and about early childhood literacy over at Raising a Literate Human. I Tweet and use Facebook. I make lists. I craft letters and jot notes on my iPhone. I leave notes for my daughter’s babysitter. I write fiction (two separate picture book manuscripts that are constantly on my mind). I use Treat to send birthday, get well, and encouragement cards to friends and family. I believe in the power of a hand-written note on beautiful stationery. I do all of these things because I am a writer.
US Senate Resolution 565 declares October 20, 2012, as the National Day on Writing. However, most folks are not in school tomorrow, so NCTE has asked that people Tweet #WhatIWrite on October 19 and then “celebrate the Day when it’s convenient for you.” When will you celebrate with your students? How will you mark this special day?
