What’s My Purpose? #OLW #SOL19 Day 1/31

What’s My Purpose?

I am once again participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge for the month of March.  This is the fourth year I have joined the community of writers over at Two Writing Teachers in taking up this challenge of writing for 31 consecutive days.  I know it will be hard work but the growth will be immeasurable.

This year my one little word is purpose. So it is only fitting that I begin this challenge asking myself what is the purpose of writing and blogging daily for the entire month of March?

For me it’s all about learning. As a literacy leader I need to be first and foremost a learner, open to new insights and ideas. When I write each and every day I discover my voice, my struggles, my tucked away feelings.  Through writing I unearth of the power of the written word and the importance of communication in general.  This is why I write in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.

I also write to connect to my learners.  I empathize with those that have a lack of an idea.  I understand what it’s like to loose focus.  I can speak first hand about the strategies to use when trying to craft a unique beginning or wrap up with a tidy ending. I blog because I believe a teacher that writes has a much better understanding of her writers. This is why I write in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.

Finally I chose to participate in the March challenge because of the wonderful community of writers who support me along the way.  I have shared tears with this network of writers, been “liked” by relative strangers,  and encouraged by people from across the globe. This is why I write in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.

The 31 days of the slice of life story challenge stand before me.  My purpose is crystal clear. This is why I write in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.
