Chronicles of a Commonplace Life

This week I’ve done a lot of reading in preparation for a writing institute I’m participating in next month.  One of the books I’ve scanned talks about a writing activity based on Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, which is an alphabetized series of her life observations and experiences.  I love this idea, and it has inspired me to create a space for my own reflective writing.

One of the goals I have for my students is to get them to write expressively and reflectively.  It occured to me that I don’t do much of this type of writing myself, so I look forward to not only sharing some of my non-food-related thoughts and ideas with my readers, but also experiencing personal growth as a writer.

Please come along with me as I embark on this new venture at Chronicles of a Commonplace Life.
