Hi all,

I am looking to spend the next year thinking very deeply about what I do, and have done, for the past decade. I am a high school teacher and a busy dad. I go through phases where I write for a while and then stop. Sometimes I focus on a specific word count, other times I try to write for a specific amount of time. The last time I stuck to writing for a few weeks, I had a lot of my ramblings on a word doc. What do you do after you've accumulated a dozen or so pages of your thoughts? Do you go back and edit? I am writing supposedly to "think deeper" about what I do, but I often feel like I am thinking, but how deeply? Without some feedback/push back, I am not sure how deeply I am thinking.
