Have you ever had someone share an idea with you, and you think, "Oh yeah, that would be fun!"?And then that idea grew like a snowball rolling downhill.
That is exactly what happened when Michelle Haseltine told me about her 100-day notebook challenge. It was a simple concept - write in your notebook every day for 100 days and share it on social media. Michelle's goal was to help others develop a meaningful habit of writing and to discover the power of writing and the joy it can bring.
But it has created a writing revolution.
I started my day writing about my one little word and posted it in the #100DaysofNotebooking Facebook group and on Twitter. Twelve hours and 160+ members later, writers are still posting and tweeting and sharing and commenting and inspiring and encouraging each other.
People have posted inspiring notebook pages full of one little words, thoughts, dreams, vulnerabilities, pain, and artwork. The community that has evolved from this little idea is inspiring.
Who wouldn't want to be a part of this!
As a member of #TeachWrite, I believe that teachers who write make better writing teachers. But I also believe that writing makes us better humans. One thing I learned from the events of today is that people want to write. People want to share their words. People want a community.
I don't know where this will lead, but I am honored to be a part of it.
