Weekly Assignments

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Each week for 6 weeks, you will write a blog post in response to a prompt that I will provide on this site each Friday.  Each prompt will also be emailed to you as long as you have subscribed to the Reflective Writing Club blog and confirmed your subscription.

Our weeks start on Friday and end on Thursday. Each week, you will:

  1. Write and publish a post on your own blog in response to that week’s prompt. Be sure to add the tag #CCCWrite to your post.
  2. Tweet the link to your post (not the link to your blog, but your specific post) and include the hashtag #CCCWrite.
  3. Comment on your peers’ CCCWrite blog posts! Each week, be sure to read and comment on several of your peers’ posts. Getting comments is one of the most rewarding parts of blogging and these interactions are what will make you feel like you are part of a community of your peers. There are several ways you can follow and interact with our CCCWrite posts.  Choose the option below that works for you or try them all!
    • View and interact with the posts from the #CCCWrite blog post feed (curated by Laura Gibbs using Inoreader)
    • View and interact with the #CCCWrite Twitter feed.
    • Follow the CCCWrite RSS feed in your own RSS reader (or smart reader) app. A smart reader is an application that “catches” all of the podcasts, blogs, and other feeds you regularly read. If you don’t have one, give Feedly a try. Follow these steps.
      • Download the free Feedly app to your mobile device or create an account using the Feedly web application.
      • an RSS feed (or “smart reader”) like Feedly to catch the #CCCWrite posts. To do so, download Feedly (or your favorite smart reader app) and enter this feed URL:
        • Download the Feedly app or create an account here.
        • When prompted to follow a source, enter this feed URL (created by Laura Gibbs using Inoreader): http://www.inoreader.com/stream/user/1005987531/tag/cccwritepost
        • Now you interact with our blog post feed using Feedly on your computer, tablet, and/or phone.
  4. Reply to every comment you receive on your blog. Don’t leave your peers hanging! Be mindful and appreciative of the time your peers have taken to read and comment on your thoughts. Be considerate of their view points and ask for clarification if you don’t quite understand their point of view or want to learn more.
