Sometimes coming up with ideas to write about might be hard.

If you like sports then we have a great idea for you. It is better if you do it for your own team. We enjoy writing about our league and our team. We made a setup in our notebooks to update each week so we wouldn’t feel bored.

Karthik came up with the idea at first and I copied him we both listed our games, our record, the outcome, our teammates, and our friends on other teams. We included a little sentence or two about each game. We both apologize for our handwriting as it is nearly impossible to read. We were on the same team for the Ashburn Youth Basketball League(AYBL). We were both on a team called the Warriors. We went into the playoffs but lost in the 1st round by 4 points. We both show great interest in sports and especially basketball.

We couldn’t think of ideas so we came up with this unique way for sports lovers. Notebooks have changed us as writers as we could now be free and write about things we liked.   

About Satvik
My name is Satvik and you might remember me from a blog post last week. I enjoy playing and watching sports. I am 12 years old and I’m a 6th grader that goes to Brambleton Middle School. I like blogging on my blog and usually blog about sports and my life. I like to comment on other people’s blogs. I play basketball and am in a league right now. I also like watching football. My favorite basketball team is the Cleveland Cavaliers and my favorite football team is the Seattle Seahawks. I like reading books and some of my favorite series include the Harry Potter series, the Legend series, the Michael Vey series, and the Percy Jackson series. I am currently watching the NBA playoffs unfold. I like to play video games on my PS4 and play Fortnite as well. I like working in my notebook.

About Karthik
My name is Karthik and today is my birthday! I enjoy watching and playing sports. I am turning 12 years old and right now I am in sixth grade and I go to Brambleton Middle School. I like to blog about basketball, football, and my life. On my birthday I will be playing on my basketball hoop outside. I will be also playing on my Xbox. I am planning to go to the movies. So hopefully there will be a good movie when it is my birthday. I will also be watching the NBA playoffs. My favorite team is the Cleveland Cavaliers in basketball. I will be also getting ready for the NFL to start! I like reading books and playing Fortnite. My favorite series is Percy Jackson. I have other good books which are Tim Green books and the Amulet series. I can’t wait for my birthday.

  1. Happy birthday, Karthik! And thank you both Satvik and Karthik for sharing these pages and this idea with all of us today. What fun it will be for you to go back and revisit these games - I played basketball in a league for years and loved every minute. If I had kept a notebook then, I would absolutely have tried this idea. Now I will share it with the young athletes I know. I hope there's a good movie for you today, Karthik! And yes...I feel free in my notebook too! Peace. xx

  2. These posts remind me of the beauty of notebooks - that no everything need to feel like a complete story - thank goodness or I would never write. Lately I have done more of this kind of work in my notebook and it makes me feel good. I am not a sports person, but I jut down important dates related to one topic or statistics I read in the newspaper and it makes me happy to have so much to say so quickly. I also find I think about these numbers later on in the day after I have written. Thanks for this

  3. I just love how you both use notebooks in this way! Tracking sports is certainly a unique and creative way to use your noteooks! I hope you had a Happy Birthday, Karthik!
