English 5 – Monday 3/15/21

March’s Ides….

5:5:10pm:  First ten words that come to mind….  Just write them down, let us respond.  Could take any form.


Not rushing.

Don’t want that.

Ease is what me frees.

5:10-5:40pm:  Self-talk in writing.  Why.  What does it do.  Is that what our authors are doing?  Why do it at all?  

A self-talk that is written is a realized realization.

Talking to yourself is when you find stories, understandings and lively realities you may have dismissed at one point.

5:40-6:05pm:  Irby update….  What are you seeing, learning, feeling?

I’m feeling a reassuring statement to not care so much, take life as it comes and embrace everything that you are.

She tells me to look more into what is stressing me, why overthink… why think at all.. just live and enjoy who you are.

6:05-6:20pm:  How are YOU?  Tel us about you, your story, what’s been happening in your story.  Help us get to know your story better…

6:20-6:30pm:  Tonight’s page….  What’s there?

For me:  Self, Self-talk, learning from immediate sight.


Essays should be YOU.  Not “extensions”.  Fly to the page and love MADLY.

Read to find something you need….  Read to perpetuate curiosity, not find answers.

***ASSIGNMENT:  Keep reading Irby…..  Start a conversation with me over email, about Irby….
