Email exchange with a student, E, as she worked on revising her historical fiction narrative this weekend.
E: Do I need to add more details in my story or do I just need to rewrite my story
Me: I think more details are always great!
E: I think it’s fun to add more details right. Thanks for your response.
My heart: *poof!*
I’ve been really down about the way many of my colleagues look at our students’ writing and progress, and this was such a welcome note of cheer. Fun! To write! It’s totally working. 🙂
Commenters/lurkers! I’d love to hear about your latest smile-inducing triumphs. If you’re reading this, please share some joy!
