Why I Write: 2019 Post Revisited (2020 Additions in Blue)

 I write because I found my peeps at Two Writing Teachers, a community of fellow teacher writers. I wish I could say that I love writing, but it's not the case. Given the choice, to read or to write, I'll pick reading every time. Even today after writing almost every week for eight nine years, I must prod myself to pick up the computer and craft a slice. I continue to be envious of my writer friends who love to write. Without the friends I've discovered through blogging, I fear I wouldn't write much.

I write to capture the beauty of our world. Sometimes my words don't  do justice to that beauty. So I snap and share pictures beside my words.

I write to try to figure out our world in all its complicated messiness Little did I know, a year ago, how complicated and messy and challenging our world would become in 2020.

I write to discover more about myself.  This year, I've been writing to discover and remember more about my family with my #52stories project.

I write to share my joy of books. Always!

I write to reflect on my journey as a daughter of God. If you'd like to explore your spiritual journey, join our Spiritual Journey Thursday group. We write on the first Thursday of each month.

I write to explore the adventure of being Grandma to three marvelous grand boys and one delightful grand girl.

I write because your words on the page inspire me! Your words prod and poke and provoke me to put my fingers to the keyboard and add my voice every single week. Thanks for the journey, dear friends!

  1. Great update, Ramona. Delightful that a grand girl joined the family, isn’t it? I enjoy inspiration and book choices from you. Writing has been an unexpected journey!

  2. You write with joy, pride, and love for the world, Ramona. Your voice is one of a grandma, family member, teacher, daughter of God, reader, and lover of the world. You give and bring joy so keep on writing.

  3. Hello, Ramona! I haven't visited in a while, but it's always rewarding when I do. I'd love to know more about your #52 Stories project! I retired in June and have 2 more grandchildren coming in February. Wishing you the best!

  4. What a great post! It is always good to think about why we do things. I often wonder why I keep writing my blog and I realize it is indeed the friends I have made over time here at Two Writing Teachers. So glad you are here!

  5. I think it's so worthwhile to reflect on why we write on this National Day of Writing. I asked my community college students to think on that today. I love how you mention capturing the beauty of our world and using it to figure out this "complicated messiness." I certainly concur.

  6. I like how the core of why you write stays the same and you add to the previous. I have found that the more I write the more it is about discovering myself.
