#Nerdlution Day 1-The Mission, the Plan, the Ground Rules

ImageI’ve been thinking about my #nerdlution to write daily for 50 days. First of all who wouldn’t want to do this, just to get the really cool button crafted by @MrazKristine. Secondly, I want to do this in a way that is not crazy making, that is in fact doable and fun. I needed direction. I needed a mission!   Then I needed my ground rules, a sort guide book, a plan. I really can’t help this, I’m a nerd. I live by rules and plans.

My simple mission in this #nerdlution is to discover something about writing and myself. I want to push from time to time to points where I might be a little uncertain or a little uncomfortable.

So here goes my #nerdlution plan:

  • Monday: Reflection on what I’ve done so far
  • Tuesday: Slice of Life – Love this writing community!
  • Wednesday: Poetry – This is shaky ground for me, so I’m breaking out the Georgia Heard.
  • Thursday and Friday – Writing about reading – More nonfiction needed here.
  • Saturday: Celebration –  A huge thank you to Ruth Aryes creator of this wonderful weekly ritual.
  • Sunday: Working on this one. Thinking about reflections on students.

The Ground Rules:

  • No school night writing may take over 30 minutes.
  • In bed by 10 pm on school nights.
  • Upon reflection and with really good reasons, I can modify.
