Welcome to my new blog. I want to challenge myself to write every single day…because to be a great teacher of writing a person needs to make an effort daily. It is like starting a new diet or learning how to use the Smart Board…it won’t just happen if I keep thinking about it. I need to put my fingers to the keyboard and ‘give it a go’ as the Australians like to remind us. Writing is like that…putting it out there…as messy as it is, and hopefully I’ll start swimming a stroke or two. Maybe some of you will join me in the muck.
