Writing Resources for Students

Welcome!

My name is Karen and I am a writer.

I have been writing since I could hold a pencil. My first attempt at writing was just scribble. I thought my scribble was writing, but we all know scribbling is not writing. I learned to write alphabet letters, then words and sentences and it wasn’t long before I put those sentences together to write my own stories.

If you are a writer you are in the right place.  I bet you have a notebook where you keep all of your writing ideas. If you do not have a notebook yet, I recommend that you get one. You never know when inspiration will strike and a great idea will pop into your head.

Having a notebook handy will help you to keep track of all of your ideas. There are also digital tools that you can use to collect all of your ideas if you prefer to keep your ideas in a digital notebook. It really doesn’t matter what you use as long as you have a place for your ideas.

Everyone has a story that should be shared with the world. I am here to encourage you to write your stories and most importantly share them. Now that can be scary, but stories need to be shared.

Would you like to join my student-writing page?

Here, I will post writing ideas that might inspire your writing. Check back often and keep writing.

Getting to know you

I think the best way to start writing is getting to know who you are as a writer. Think about the statements that I have written below. Then grab a piece of paper and a pencil or pen and complete the prompts below.
  • I like to write on …

    (ex. lined paper, unlined paper, a computer, notebook)

  • I like to write with …

    (ex. pen, pencil, crayon, keyboard)

  • My favorite place to write is …

  • I am the kind of writer who…

    (ex. needs quiet, likes noise, sits at a desk, writes with others)

  • My favorite writer is … because…

  • I like to write about …

  • My favorite kind of writing is…

    (ex. poetry, stories, song lyrics, lists)

  • I like to write because…

Now that you know who you are as a writer; it is time to FLEX your writing muscles. If you write for just 10 minutes each day you will strengthen your writing muscles. The more you write the better you will write and it starts with just 10 minutes a day.

For your first challenge set the clock for 10 minutes and brainstorm a list of things you would like to write about.

Ready... Set... Go…

"The secret of becoming a writer is to
write, write and keep on writing."
