Don't miss my website! Video lessons and more for teaching writers.

I'm glad you are here to celebrate! Share a link to your blog post below and/or use #celebratelu to share celebrations on Twitter.

Move: This week I ran with Hannah, walked with two different friends, and ran on my own. It was good to move.

Preserve: The kids and I made 34 meals for our freezer. It was a long day of cooking, but worth the result. With a cross country runner, a football player, a volleyball player, and a soccer player in the house, I think we will still make it through the fall sports season with home cooked meals around the kitchen table.

Write: I'm glad I blogged yesterday. It helped me grow roots to some of the whirling thoughts. It was even better to receive the feedback.

I hope you'll join Christy Rush-Levine and me for the first #TaCwriters chat on Sunday at 8:00 pm. We will be talking about writing workshop routines with Katherine Sokolowski and the end of the chat will be dedicated to celebrations about teaching writers.

Share your celebrations below!


  1. Ruth, Congrats of getting out & running. I got a couple of great walks in this week. :)

  2. Happy to hear you're finding time to exercise, too-feels good. Looking forward to your chat. Time to get my own head around the beginnings of school, so I know it'll be inspiring, a great jumping off point! Thanks to you and Christy for doing!

  3. I am looking forward to creating and experiencing celebratory moments ahead. The start of a new month always gets me excited!

  4. Meals in the freezer will be so handy when the sports kick into high gear. Wise momma to plan ahead!

  5. Moving, Preserving, Writing. What great verbs! All of them have a quality of forward movement and preservation at the same time.
