discovering a new character
Today’s #TeachersWrite quick write challenge is to put a character in the media center of a school. I love quick writes, because there is always something lurking just beyond the edges of my mind that I get to discover when I take a few minutes to scribble some words.
Today I found a new character — the media center specialist. I think I’m already in love with this quirky lady. I wrote fast and long (for a notebook entry), ending up with 400 words. Then I turned the page of my notebook to a clean sheet and began noting the things I learned because of the quick write.
How about you? What are you discovering as you spend some time with a quick write in your notebook?
