Reflecting on my OLW

23 May

My One Little Word for 2017 is

stretch

Have I stretched myself? At first glance, I think not. I feel as though I’ve just been rolling along. But with deeper reflection, I can say I have:

  • I’ve pressed myself as a teacher of writing, trying new moves
  • I’ve tried out some new organizational strategies┬áto be sure I conference with everyone
  • I finally joined a book group
  • I am trying to keep a writer’s notebook (still a work in progress)

There are a few other smaller ways I’ve stretched myself, but these are the most significant. The is still more than half a year to go. I can keep working on these and, maybe even stretch myself in other ways I haven’t thought of yet.

My OLW hasn’t made me a new person – that wasn’t my goal. But I feel like I have stretched enough to grow.
