Out of Practice

Every year after summer break, I would return to school feeling like I forgot how to write.

I start classes again on Wednesday, though I already started reading. Technically, I did write during the spring semester, but not in an academic way; writing about teaching was surprisingly an informal effort. For mock trial, I had to come up with brief lesson plans, but again, not academic writing. It feels like I’ve taken the better part of the year off.

I know it’s probably an unfounded fear (maybe I should write a practice essay to scrub the rust off), but I’m worried that I won’t know what to do, that I’ll have gone from drafting in my head to not even knowing where to begin.
