CELEBRATE This Week: XXXVI
I’m glad you are here to celebrate! Share a link to your blog post below and/or use #celebratelu to share celebrations on Twitter.
There is much to celebrate just coming off of #allwrite14. I’m almost afraid to make a list because I know I’m going to forget something or leave someone out.
. Check out the #allwrite14 Twitter feed
from the All-Write Summer Institute. It is exceptional professional development. Then mark your calendars for June 18-19, 2015 for next year’s conference.
Two. I am overwhelmed by the number of people who invest in me as a writer. Thank you to those who let me talk about my writing process and others who complimented me on my stories and those who told me stories of your own and the ones who let me figure out the important ideas. It takes a whole community for a writer to be sustained.
Three. I liked dinner on Friday night. (I liked dinner on Thursday night too, but I forgot to take a picture!) It is amazing the way story binds friends. I’m grappling with the joy that comes from being around dear friends and they way I miss those who I wish were here.
Four. I get to focus on writing at the Choice Literacy Writing Retreat for contributors. I can’t wait to wrangle my writing life in the next few days.
. My writing group is so quirky and sneaky
(and this makes me love them more). They introduced me for the keynote. It was sweet and touching and made me forgive them instantly for meeting without me!
Six. I loved being in the same room while the #nerdybookclub team (Cindy, Colby, Donalyn, & Katherine) recorded a video. I love the way teams work together and fuel one another’s passions.
