#SOL23: Advocacy

Day 2 of 30 Day Writing Challenge with Jill @ShelfieTalk

“i am running into a new year” Lucille Clifton link

#ASDWWrites How, when and where will I act?

How does one think about one’s #OneLittleWord? One approach is to think about literally putting it into action. In this quick write response I was considering a continuum for action. Is action really this simple?

How will I fill the middle section? What lies between action and no action? What will I need to do in order to be my best self?

Advocacy for Action?

How will you bring your #OLW to life? Or to ACTION?


Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. It took me a long time realize this, but I find that what comes between actin and inaction is the most important part. It’s the process or how we get there. When I would focus on the process as oppose to the outcome, I became a better teacher. I connect your continuum to the dash we all live between birth and death. One year, my elementary school’s tee shirt said, “live the dash.” Good luck with your olw and best wishes for 2023.

  2. Ooooh, Fran…..I love the question. What lies between action and no action? That contemplation of decision is so strongly felt here. The weighing of consequence, the counting of advantages or disadvantages. You have me thinking today!

  3. I think your question reflects the challenge we all have to find/take a OLW that will inspire us. This year, I chose an image as well as a word….

  4. I’ve read a lot of Lucille Clifton. How did I miss this poem. Thank you for finding and sharing it. It made be gasp – it made me see myself in her reflection.

  5. There is so much to think about here….thank you.
