I have a dream ...

One of my Writing students sent me his genre speech draft yesterday ... but substituted it with Martin Luther King's great 'I have a dream' speech.  I do thank him for giving me the chance to revisit this powerful speech, but I confess it has inspired me to write my own version in response, along the lines of ...

'I have a dream that one day Joshua will use his time wisely to fulfil his writing potential, that he will not only get his drafts done, but that he will refine, edit and polish his work so that what he submits is as worthy as that of the published greats of his era and those who have so bravely gone before.

I have a dream today!'

... that's all I have time for now, but I DO look forward to completing this piece!  Juicy ...

I think I will set this as a writing stimulus next week ...


  1. Interesting way of doing home work by Joshua. I guess it is good that he is in to great speeches though.
