So let’s get started #SOL19

Today’s the day. The first day of #TeachWritetober! I’ve committed to writing something every day. It can be a big something, a little something, or a something in between. Just something. It doesn’t even have to be shared. Just written. Committed to paper, virtual or otherwise.

I needed this. I have been in school now for four weeks and school, as it does every year, bumped everything that got in the way — writing, reading, cleaning, weeding, you name it. Just as the Slice of Life Challenge pushes me to write and publish on Tuesdays and every day in March, #TeachWritetober is going to get me back on track. I’m longing to write just for me — Anytime Pages, poetry, Slices, or even a journal article that’s drifting around in my head like the leaves that dance through the air on cool fall days such as this.

I’m ready, so let’s get started!


Many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here each Tuesday and every day in March. Won’t you join us?

  1. This is great, Christie! I especially love “…drifting around in my head like the leaves that dance through the air on cool fall days such as this.” So poetic! I am hoping that TeachWritetober19 gets me back on track, too. I miss all the writing time that I had this summer!


  2. Christie, I miss seeing you at Poetry Friday but now you will be back on track. So many challenges are going on now: #Poemtober, #Inktober, and now #TeachWritetober19. I’d like to pop into all of them. Thank you for noting the TeachWrite challenge.


  3. This sounds amazing! I’m taking a writing class right now – and the daily writing and prompts that are required are really getting me in the writing habit! I think this challenge would do the same! Good luck!


  4. A challenge that’s flexible. I can get my head around that one. I plan to write a haiku each day for Inktober. Like you said, school has jumped in the way of writing for me as well. I look forward to reading along this month.


  5. I agree with Margaret–Flexible challenges are the way to go! I’m hoping to play around with Inktober/Poemtober which sounds like it fits the Teachwritober challenge, too. A twofer?
