No that is not Jack Nicholson is his latest scary movie role—that’s me. I’m getting pie’d by the best-of-the-best of this year’s writing students. Last week we held a celebration for our 78 fourth -grade writers with a picnic, relays, games, and a good old-fashioned pie-ing. Which makes me wonder, what have YOU done lately to celebrate your writing success? No, you can’t throw a pie in my face, but you do need to celebrate.
I just heard you say, “Me? Celebrate my writing? I’m not published yet.” So? Have you worked hard on a revision? Developed an innovative plot? Brainstormed a fun, new character? There are many reasons to celebrate your writing. Celebrating those mini milestones gives you the energy to keep on keeping on.
I have one word for you today—CELEBRATE!
