Continuing our podcast series on the Four Forces of Enchantment, let’s talk more about risk-taking.
Some writing programs don’t address the key condition needed to take risks in writing: emotional safety.
That’s why writing a diary or a journal has been popular for centuries. The tradition of daily writing away from readers allows people to:
- discover their own thoughts,
- externalize their feelings,
- process what happens to them.
In our “educator” hunger to create writers of our children, sometimes we skip the step that allows them to write without our prying eyes.
Complete Tea with Julie notes can be found HERE.
