So far everything with my blog seems to be going good. At first I didn't like the idea of everyone being able to seem my work and thoughts, but recently it hasn't bothered me at all. The hardest part about blogging for me would be the transition from old school pen and paper. It just doesn't seem normal yet, posting my assignments for everyone to see. Maybe it's a lack of accomplishment. It just seems like something is missing from my work, but I don't know what. My goal for the week is to add a couple more personal additions, and maybe this will make me feel more comfortable with the idea of a blog. As for 6 word memoirs, I really enjoyed writing them. It was hard at first to piece a story together in just 6 words, but near the end I was writing like a machine. It surprised me just how much can be told with only 6 words! During this assignment I chose to stay in the classroom, and I don't know what difference that would have made. Maybe I will try sitting alone and writing some more, but honesty I don't think that will have any affect on my writing. For me the most rewarding part was being able to tell a story in just 6 words. I think it's interesting how someone else can read your 6 words and have a good idea of what your trying to say. One thing I noticed however is that everyone perceives things differently and for that reason 6 word memoirs can mean different things for everyone. As a reader/writer a learnt that 6 word memoir, opens a door, and the person reading decides where to take it.
