What I found most gratifying about this exercise was how many writers from whom I hadn’t heard before came forward with stories about their learning experiences. Some of you were writers of sailing blogs of which I was previously unaware. Some of you don’t have your own blogs but felt inspired to send in a story anyway. Thank you to you all.
This is a typical reaction from bloggers whose gwps have been promoted here for the first time, and that’s what *I* find gratifying.
Keep up the good work with more pleasant surprises for unsuspecting bloggers!
Group writing project ahoy! Sailor Tillerman is announcing his first group writing project in a year and it ain’t for landlubbers like myself.
Sailing Learning Experiences
In Tillerman’s words: “Some of us use that phrase to describe a major screw-up as in, “Oh no! Not another learning experience.” But you can interpret it how you want. It might be a story about a funny or an embarrassing mistake you made, or it might be a serious post about something you learned while sailing, or something you learned from a book or a course, or even a tale in praise of a favorite instructor or coach. It can be about racing or cruising or day-sailing.If you have pictures or video we’d love to see them. The idea is for us to create a collection of our learning experiences that will be of interest to fellow sailors.”
Write a post on your blog about a “learning experience” that is related to sailing.
