Weekly Writing Tip
Just Write! Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? But so many aspiring writers say to me: “I just want to write.” They then go on to explain all the things that stop them. Life is stressful, I’m busy with the kids (or partner or pets or…), I have to work, there’s no time, my health’s not great, I’m too busy… and on it goes. I listen and nod and tell them I get it. And I do. I was there once. But the hard, cold, reality is that nothing can substitute for making the time to sit down at the computer and starting to type–even it’s only for ten minutes a day. The step to becoming a writer, is to start writing. There’s nothing simpler. Or harder!
Writers’ Group News
The Write Story is a writing program to support and develop young people’s writing. The Writers’ Groups are run in stages starting from Yr5 and 6, up to Yr 11 and 12. Each week from Term 3, a piece of student writing will showcase here. In addition, The Write Story newsletter will feature a piece from the writer-of-the-week from each of the groups. If you’d like to subscribe to the newsletter, there’s a button on the top right-hand side of the website, or you can drop me a line here. Just put “subscribe” into the subject line.
