Your Inner Critic

I was planning to share a passage from Ted Kooser’s The Poetry Home Repair Manual (which I highly recommend), but then I found this post at the blog, Two Writing Teachers. I am compelled to share it instead.

And for a poetry assignment, after reading the post (about teaching 6th graders; a good speed for me today), write a poem about your inner critic. What kind of ewww face is she making? What’s your response?

“It’s okay if you’re laughing. The kids also thought this was hilarious.”
