Writing is about discovery.

I just submitted some writing that was proving to be more of a challenge than I initially anticipated.

It gave me a headache.

It frustrated me.

It shook my self-confidence.

Until tonight.

When I had a breakthrough and finished writing.

I think it was because I persevered.

It was also because I wanted to prove that I can do hard things.

And, maybe more importantly, I was because I wrote in the company of other teacher-writers in our #Time2Write group.

I submitted my writing and now the waiting begins.

But no matter the outcome. I’m proud of myself.

I stuck with it.

I made my writing sing. At least, I think I did and in the big scheme of things, that’s all that matters.

If someone else agrees, then that’s just lagniappe.
