While reading through my students’ home writing journals this week, I came across an entry by one young lady that listed “Words I’d be willing to get rid of” and “Words I have to keep”. Her list was simple but I came away with a much deeper understanding of this student than I had before.
HA – inspiration! So I will be borrowing this brilliant idea from her – credit goes to Audry! Thank you for giving me another list to make:
Words I would be willing to get rid of ~
Injustice Orange Fear
Evil Maggots Hunger
Revenge Catastrophe Testing
Words I HAVE to keep ~
God Blue Family Friendship
Pie Harmony Health
Books Canyon River
Dog Peaceful Blessings
Ocean Summer Comfort
oh . . . and WRITER (of course)
Many, many more to add, but this will have to suffice for tonight. What words would you keep?
Quote for the day: Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
