The Word document above was the inspiration for the creation of this blog. It was an assignment for my final grad school class. I’m (almost) a certified Reading Specialist; the last class I took focused on using writing in the classroom. In a wonderful twist, we had to write a non-informational piece so that we could experience the same writing process we ask our students to do.
Anyway, after the initial feelings of fear of being ostracized by my professional peers, I completely enjoyed writing this piece. My audience (my peer editing group) also loved it. It was they who suggested making my relationship with my husband a central idea around which the “gaming girl” took root.
I’m posting this especially for my gamer friends. Many of you are mentioned in passing.
And don’t you love the title? Huzzah.
