Like a Winning Team
Even though writing isn’t exactly a sport, there’s still a lot of overlap between the two. In basketball, football, soccer, and many others, there’s a strategy, a process, and of course, plenty of practice to hone those skills. Is writing that much different?
But let’s test the similarities a bit more. On every team, each player takes a position and a role. Of course, depending on the sport, these roles can be pretty flexible and open to interpretation. And then, each one of those players goes onto the field ready to play their very best. On the one hand, we have our Writing with Design tools. This is all about process and practice. We’re building them up and giving them the means they need to go further, faster, and even better with their writing. On the flipside, just like a sports player, they have their own unique voice that they bring to the game.
How do we know when our team has won the day? Where’s the goal line, if you will?
It’s when, at the end of a semester or a school year, we don’t just have a classroom. Instead, in a way, we have our own library built on confident voices that can’t stop scribbling and typing away. They understand strategy and the rules of the “game,” but they haven’t abandoned what makes them special as individual writers.
Yet, we’ve also nurtured their talent for future play. And that’s a real touchdown.
