Earlier this year, I took a leap into the barely known and wrote what became an initial draft of my personal academic advising philosophy for a NACADA eTutorial. Afterwards, I tucked away a printed copy safely in a notebook on my desk. Whenever I opened the notebook, it would stare me down. This went on for eight months.
If I considered taking it out again to review, a knot of insecurity would build in my chest and work its way down to my stomach. I read, I wrote, I reflected, I interviewed, and blogged about my passion for working with college students. Finally eight months later, I took another swing at writing it. The result was part 1 of 2 final papers for my Foundations class.
