How Writing has Changed Me

Hi! I’m MK. I will be blogging today,May 26. Which “ironically” is my favorite number. Anyway, I usually wasn’t too thrilled in elementary  school to do writing. We always had a set topic- a moment in time. I literally started running out of ideas! You only have so many small moments in life.

When we got out very own notebook  this year, I started getting more and more ideas because of all the writing freedom we have. I love showing up to the fresh pages in my notebook and filling them with words. If you plan to be starting a writing notebook, or currently do, then I suggest doing a quote of the day if you don’t already. Starting a notebook does not mean having to write a lot. Just do a little everyday and you will start finding more and more to write about. Thank you for coming to the blog today!! If you want to take a look at my blog, you can find me at!

Thank you again to these writers from Michelle Haseltine's sixth-grade classes, for taking over Sharing Our Notebooks this month.  What a delight! Please check in each Saturday morning in May to see who wins each week's notebook giveaway!

Please know that Sharing Our Notebooks welcomes all kinds of notebook keepers - of any age and interest - to open up their pages and share their process.  If you are interested in writing in this space, please contact me, Amy, directly.  I welcome you!
