Take space for writing.
Where do you take space for writing?
It can be literal…where do you write? At the kitchen table? On your couch? Out back when the sun is rising in the sky?
It can be figurative. What kind of mind space do you create so you can write? Deep breaths? Angry outbursts? Joy?
It can be topical. What kinds of topics take space in your writing? For me it tends to be: faith, adoption, writing, teaching.
If it’s been awhile since you’ve written, take some space to make it happen. We miss you…and your stories.
*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

Our writing spaces are sacred, and the way you pull us into your piece through a connection with a student’s question is excellent. I love your image of your pens becoming cat toys. I write on the couch (or comfy chair on my screened porch when the weather warrants) near my kitchen, because of the coffee! 🙂

Thanks for the invitation, Ruth! I thought about my inner writing space. https://imaginethepossibilitiesblog.wordpress.com/2021/01/27/waking-to-words/
My space… helps me process. If I’m not in it on a daily basis…I sink. Love to all and thank you Ruth for an incredible prompt.
My writing space has been empty for a while. Today, I didn’t write about that, but I wrote.
I wrote about cake for breakfast.
Thinking about making a space for writing made me think of “Entering a Poem” by Robin Hirsch and how the poem inspired me and my students.
We are in the red phase. Our little province in Canada had done amazingly well in 2020 after quick action and a lengthy shutdown last spring, but we’ve been hit hard this month (and they have left us in school buildings this time). Here is a very short story of my drive home today.
A quick snapshot of topics that fill my writing space
Made some space late at night, or early in the morning. Have a lovely day. Need to do some shoveling ❄️
