Free Printable: Words to Repeat to Yourself for December 2023
When I chose to major in English in college many years ago, it was because I realized how much I loved and appreciated being able to spend a long time with just one word, phrase, or sentence. I could spend hours with one word, moving through different dictionaries, looking for patterns, sifting through layers, finding roots.
And now, many years later, I’m in graduate school exploring many of the same themes. For me, these deep dives aren’t just about analyzing a text. Instead, it was a way to explore the depths within a single word, a single phrase, a single tense…finding meaning and connection in places that might get overlooked.
This is the process I use to create what I share, including these words-to-repeat-yourself phrases for December. And at the end of it all, there are these sentences that emerge…each one a single piece of a larger narrative. And if they speak to you in any way, feel free to save this post and return to it or take a screenshot and carry them with you.
