Write More

Over the years, I have found that my students inspire me in many ways. This past fall semester, in the Marketing Capstone where we have students build their Professional Digital Identity, I was inspired by everyone — but one student’s approach to the assignment has been digging at me.

Ben challenged himself with “the More project” where he decided to do “more” of something and then write about it. As I watched him develop this and keep it going over the fall semester, I kept thinking to myself that as a professor who is pushing her students to create and build content, I’ve not been holding up my end of the bargain.

I’ve fallen into a state of non-writing. Going from one thing to the next, but not pausing to reflect, think, and explore. The very things I ask of my students.

So as we head into an uncertain political climate (although, truth be told, it’s getting more and more certain every day), face constant change in the discipline I teach, and I get ready to celebrate my half century birthday, it’s clear that it is time to WRITE MORE.

And so, I begin, with thanks to Ben and all my students. So much content to create..so little time!
