Yes, I am still doing the 30 posts in 30 days, but—not during the weekend. Ha! This is my professional(ish) blog so I am taking weekends off. After all there was a living wall to be planted, and a garden-hut to be painted, and the foundation for a deck to be leveled.
The problem with not doing research is finding a writing voice. While it is fairly easy for me to tap ahead and post in this blog about all the things happening in the classroom. None of this—in my opinion—would ever make a publication. I tried, about two years ago, to write an article for a practitioner journal, and it was a bungled mess of gibberish. I just could not find my voice. Besides, here (on my blog) I don’t feel like a fraud!
Warning this is kind of sort of a rant. So I have about 7 different posts drafted all more or less ready to go but more than half of them are fairly negative. I am not sure if this is a side effect of writing every day? Has anyone else made this experience?

Which is just generally difficult for me–heck I am glad if I remember to moisturize! So beginning today gives me four days (including the weekend) where there are no excuses for not writing. It’s basically a little bit of a head-start.
So this week is Transmedia Storytelling week I haven’t come up with an actual story. My story for now is about the act of writing—or is it more appropriate to say creating?—a transmedia story. The story about telling, showing, creating, painting, writing, drawing, thinking, or developing [insert more verbs here] a transmedia story. In doing so […]
On Routines Today’s writing exercise is looking into routines. There is all this advice out there on how routines help with productivity, and creativity, and the general development of expertise. Now my approach to routine looks something like: So part of my reason for participating in #DigiWriMo is that the daily task forces some kind […]
Visual Text Today I am trying visual text … because that’s an easy medium for me … a medium I engage with daily. https://goo.gl/photos/QqnR41FZyE7Fhaos5 The description of each photo is under Info. The photos are almost all work related. Making me think about the environment within which we act on a daily basis. What it is in […]
First writing exercise for this month is my alternative CV … hm … So I think this should be something that’s like me? Food First? Rhyming–more or less–is part, too “Despite Autumn” (13/09/2015) … and writing of course English is like make-up I wrote this for a MOOC I participated in. I wrote my first […]
