I teach EFL in China.

Hi! New member here. Wondering if anyone teaches EFL writing out there. Would be great to start a forum on that.

Hi, I'm rebuilding my profile on She Writes and joined your group b/c I can completely relate to the guilt over grading student essays, versus editing my novel.  I'd also love to hear about any ideas about incorporating online media to enhance a writing class. I often wonder if I should have them start a blog on Wordpress, the future it seems to me, for my students is web writing, and I think the rules are different.  Thoughts?

Hi all.  At this time of year, I often find myself dragging a bit.  Spring break is weeks away, and the weekends go by a bit too quickly to allow for the catching of breath.  So, I turn to writing.  As I work on revamping a professional blog, I discovered some old notes about the value of reflecting amid the hectic buzz of our daily grind.  I share it here in hopes of connecting with kindred souls:

Positive habit formation: the importance of ritual
