Over the weekend I took a writing class. The pandemic has yielded many classes and programs since so many were isolated. Some people went through bread baking phases, but many of my friends collected all the classes.
The class was a two part guided writing exercise to create more knowledge around a world a writer creates. One of the points Nina made was to have a list of 5 anchors to keep the heart of your story in the forefront of your mind. A list to keep you centered. A list to bring you back to the story you want to tell.
When I was writing in my notebook about the experience I thought about life anchors.
What are the 5 things that anchor you to the heart of your life?
What are the 5 things that anchor you to your teaching life?
Are they the same?
This is what I am thinking and writing about today.
