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

Feeding the Writer with a Day Trip

Northfield is my favorite town to take a day trip in the warm seasons. It is an rich autumn trip to drive by the apple orchards and farmhouses. The town is just far enough from the Cities that it feels like you left on a vacation. You have to pass…See More
