Everyone knows that unity is power. United we stand; united we sit. That is my take on that famous saying. My point is that going it alone (no matter what “it” is) takes a lot of self-motivation, perseverance, and faith. The statistics below come from my postings on my National Writing Project page. I wish I can channel those many viewers to this and my other blogs by chanting a mantra.
I guess that outlet will be the equivalent of someone pushing the button of prerecorded compliments when he/she is feeling down. I posted some stats from the same link when the Kennesaw Mountain Writing Project ended months ago. I had not gone that route until I received a survey to rate my experience, so I took a journey westward (I guess; my mind sees it as the west) and discovered that people are still hitting my postings. I am eternally grateful and have returned the same to them.
It’s validating to know I am not alone. But missing something makes us appreciate it more too. We have a funny expression in my family that is meant the be endearing. How can I miss you if you won’t go away? 🙂
I loved your poetry… It’s fancy…it’s tasty!
I also loved it because it teased my brain…and knocked on closed doors of knowledge to open!
i am just discovering an emerging poet in me…Your poems are inspiring
I love reading YA fiction! Most likely because that is the age group I teach and I am always sneaking peeks at their titles to see what is going on in “their” world. Don’t give up…and let me know when you have something meaty to chew on!

Pretty piece. I love your way with words.
it was very interesting to me to view my life in segments of time.
I can’t even think of an adjective to completely describe my feelings about being involved with the Kennesaw Mountain Writing Project. Like you Frances, I am ecstatic. I know this is going to be a transformative experience and I look forward to applying my new insights and knowledge to my class in the fall.
I think this will be a time of discovery for all of us! I am glad to share the exploration with you!
