Write…Mrs. Obama says

Readers, I wouldn’t normally write four blogs in one week, but I just happened upon this quote from Mrs. Obama in an interview given to a girls school in England and well, I simply HAVE to share.

“So I would encourage you all to read, read, read. Just keep reading. And writing is another skill. It’s practice. It’s practice. The more you write, the better you get. Drafts–our kids are learning the first draft means nothing. You’re going to do seven, 10 drafts. That’s writing, it’s not failure, it’s not the teacher not liking you because it’s all marked up in red. When you get to be a good writer, you mark your own stuff in red, and you rewrite, and you rewrite, and you rewrite. That’s what writing is.”

Why? Well because I make stationery. My long term plan is to create an online resource about the importance and skill in writing. If Mrs. Obama sees a need for it, then I clearly can’t be too far off on this. YAY!
