Slice of Life Small Logo10 Reasons: Why I Write

I write to record my thinking

I write to note interesting research.

I write to show love.

I write to remember.

I write to pack away memories for later.

I write to organize myself, my belongings, my world.

I write to communicate with my peers, my students, my friends, my family.

I write to tell my stories.

I write to direct others.

I write to add enjoyment to my life.

I write about literacy education and my love for reading and writing. My passion is sharing titles I use for school libraries, classroom collaborations, and professional development. My goal is to collaborate, research, and share with other life-long literacy learners. Welcome to my blog!

  1. So many wonderful reasons to write. I love “I write to add enjoyment to my life.” If only all of our students would find this same enjoyment.

  2. Love your list! My favorites: “I write to tell my stories,” and “I write to show love.”

  3. I write to show love. Oh, I love that. I think I write Slice of Life Stories for the same reason.

  4. I love writing for many of the same reasons you do. I write for therapy too.

  5. It seems each is a great reason to write…writing is giving. Thank you for being generous.

  6. Glad you made a list. I did not but enjoyed the day anyways.
