Sacred Writing Time Did you come to class with an idea to write about? As soon as class starts, quietly make your keyboard clack! It’s January 5. Today is “National Bird Day.” How many birds can you list in two minutes? Can you list both carnivores and herbivores? Trivial Fact of the Day: The electric chair was actually invented by a dentist. Have you ever been sadistically** treated while in a dentist’s chair? Interesting Quote of the Day : “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” --Martin Luther King (American Civil Rights Leader) **Vocabulary Word of the Day: sadist (noun) – a person who takes pleasure in another’s pain and suffering can be called this fancy noun. Can you paint a picture in your writer’s notebook of a sadistic P.E. teacher or a sadistic math teacher?
