It made me realize how much I appreciate writing for an audience. I write for myself, but I really appreciate the feedback of others. But, on further reflection, I also realized that some of the posts I wrote during the month of March never reached the audience that inspired them, so I decided it was time to share. I wrote many emails in the past two weeks, sending links of certain posts to people who motivated me to write those pieces, or to people who knew the topics about which I wrote.
- I sent several posts to my parents, about my grandmother and how my mom was both my reading and knitting mentor.
- I sent an email to both of my daughters, sharing with them the posts about side view mirrors, drip castles, side by side conversations, and how our reading lives are so incredibly intertwined.
- I dedicated my book club poem to both of my book clubs and sent them the link to let them know how much they mean to me.
- My post on how what I have learned in yoga has been translating into my own life was sent to my close friend, who is also my yoga instructor. Her wise words brought that piece to life.
- I shared my post about Monday Share with both of my language arts classes. They got a big kick out of being featured in my writing.
The slices continue each and every Tuesday with Ruth and Stacey at Two Writing Teachers. Please check it out for more great writers and their writing.
