I have stories to tell.
Rereading, revisiting, reflecting on past words is powerful. It is essential to make time to do this more often (and to make time for students to do this).
I have new things to say right now about the same old writing territories.
It is possible to see progressive improvement in writing over time.
Length matters--if I write long for a blog post, there better be payoff for the reader.
Writing preserves the meaning in my moments.
There is a comfortable rhythm to my life that is apparent in my writing over time.
Writing helps me understand my world and my self.
Conclusions are everything.
