Every Tuesday I write and post at the Two Writing Teachers blog. A community of teachers then read and comment on each other’s blog posts.
This is a writing exercise I use every May with students. It is a quick sentence starter that leads to some interesting forward moving conversations about goals and dreams. It also is a good way to start thinking about small pieces of a bigger goal that can be accomplished now.
I used the prompt as a quickwrite – I set the timer for 10 minutes and just let the subconscious take the reins. Here are a few of the sentences I wrote:
One day MAYbe…
my perfect writing mornings will be more of an everyday occurrence.
I will organize my journals.
I will meet Neil Gaiman and Kelly Link.
I will be able to pinpoint the magic I possess with children so I can transfer the skill to adults and coaching.
I will start my Inner Circle Gatherings.
I will create my SkillShare Class.
everyday creation will be my full time job.
I will learn to read faster!
