One Day MAYbe… #SOL

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.

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!

How would you finish this sentence today?
