#SOL16: March Challenge Day 7 – A Writer I Am



A writer I am two

Are you a writer?

How do you know?

Process:  I began with Hamlet and “To Be or Not To Be”.  I was thinking that it could easily be re-written as “To Write or Not To Write” but then I literally ran out of steam.  Scratch that idea!  I remembered when Julieanne (@jarhartz) wrote about being a writer here and then I searched my own posts and found a slice from last year that also answered the same question here.  But I wanted a clean, crisp “pattern” so I started writing with a bit of Seuss or Yoda in my brain.  I easily drafted 15 statements and then went back to add a title.  Then I began revising in the form of “re-ordering” the sentences.  I was satisfied with the content, but I wasn’t happy with the format.  That led me to breaking the sentences into two lines with the second part indented and then creating stanzas.  Then I had to find pictures for the top of the post, tag, proof and then publish!


Thank you, Anna, Betsy, Beth, Dana, Deb, Kathleen, Stacey, and Tara. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here.  It’s the March Slice of Life Challenge so be ready to read DAILY posts!
