Welcome to the January 23, 2021 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up, the space where I gather tips for teachers to help them grow as writers so their students can too!
Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!
Does the thought of sharing your writing with others make you nervous? How about your students? Here are five reasons why pressing 'publish' is good for you (and why it gets easier each time you do it.)
February will be here before you know it! Join us for a workshop to help grow your writing habit inside the Teach Write Academy. View February's workshops here.
Successful stories are all built around these five things. Check out 5 Rules for Writing Stories that Work from the Writers' Digest blog to make your narrative writing better. (Then share these tips with your students!)
If you are a writing quote collector, then check out these 26 quotes on first drafts from famous authors from Writing Routines.
Do you spend more time talking about writing, reading about writing, or thinking about writing? Maybe you need to try a habit tracker. This blog post, “Biting the Bullet--Tracking My Writing Habit” just may help.
