Eric

I'll just be happy if in 2007 I can do the things I say I'm going to do, and actually finish them! Or better yet not bother telling people I'm going to do them, and just do them. :)

Eric — Absolutely. I try to do the same thing, and now I'm really a person of my word (though it does take practice).

Just a few years ago, I used to really overstretch myself by being involved in too many things. I always had to drop out of or cancel something eventually. I never gave my complete effort, and I felt bad about it afterwards.

Now I'm committed to a few things that I really keep my word on. I can give near to 100% in a whole-hearted way, and this benefits me and the groups I give to. This good energy builds momentum, too.

The old saying, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions," could easily be "The road to hell is paved with broken promises."

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting. If you'd like to collaborate on a project, have writing/technology/creativity info to share, or want to say, "Hi," contact me at kgwritenow (at) yahoo dot com.
