"Why do we have to do this?" is a common question teachers are asked. Sometimes the answer is simple. To practice. To practice is to improve, to grow to new levels, achieve standards or reach a particular goal. Just as students need to practice their skills, writers do too. So today I am practicing. I am practicing on this blog and practicing as I edit the second book in my Back to Omaha series.
Later I'll go outside and practice my yard clean-up skills. Ugh. Happy Saturday.
