Learning to love writing again

The truth is that I love writing.

I enjoy sharing my thoughts and I enjoy reading what I have written.

But it is also true that my life doesn’t allow me enough time to write as much as I would like. Or rather, I don’t choose to create the time that I need to write. I teach middle school science. I troubleshoot and repair Apple devices. I try to parent a couple of teenagers. I try to fix what’s wrong with public education. It’s a lot.

I’m proud of the blogging that I have done under the ScriptedSpontaneity banner over the past 15 years. But I also need a sustainable way to write. And that’s why I’m using this micro.blog space as a new home for the blog. I am a HUGE fan of this team and the project that they have created. I also LOVE the way it encourages a focus on the words. This is what I need right now.

I’m starting fresh. I’m not bringing over my archive of articles. I’m not building this new space on top of anything else. Here is what you can expect:

  1. I will post here at least weekly.

  2. The posts will be short and often links to content that has been thinking. Content that deserves a conversation.

  3. The conversation will live on Twitter.

Thanks for joining me in this new adventure. I hope that it gets you as excited as it does me.
