the gift of words

For the month of December, I am participating in Gwen Bell’s The Best of 2009 Blog Challenge. The challenge is to respond to a daily writing/photo prompt that reflects on this past year. Oh, and if you want to join me I would love to hear your stories and memories, leave a comment or a link to your site.

from 12/25: Gift. What’s a gift you gave yourself this year that has kept on giving?
I signed up for a teleclass with Shauna James Ahearn (aka Gluten-Free Girl) called “Finding Your Voice.” Shauna is a talented writer and teacher. Read and follow her words.
Here are a few notes from class that I posted on my computer:
Write. A lot.
Allow yourself to write really lousy first drafts.
Think about how you construct sentences.
Remember to give yourself in every word.
