Slice of Life Challenge Day 31
Today is the last day of the month which means my posts will be much less frequent.
Here are some reminders and tips (both for myself and my small audience) for next year:
1. About a week or a month before March, start a notebook of ideas. Jot down ideas for topics. This way, you can have a running list of ideas and it sort of takes some of the pressure off figuring out what to write. Notable things don't happen every day, and it takes perspective and time to tease a story out of some things that make great tales.
2. Have a reoccurring theme once or twice a week. This year I did #tbt where I showcased old photos each Thursday. Next year I could do lists, hobbies, books, movies, or even feature places I've been on a selected day of the week which helps fill up the blog pretty quick with pre-selected topics.
3. When you am feeling in the mood to write---use that time to create drafts for some of those topics in the notebook. That way if you do have a busy day, or writer's block later in the month, you have a post that just needs a little polishing before hitting 'publish'.
I have really enjoyed this challenge. It has given me a place to jot down those stories that otherwise never get told. Even though my audience is quite small (I have refrained from sharing this blog on FB), it still feels nice to have a authentic audience, and it is very motivating to be held accountable for the challenge.
Today we will celebrate with pizza and cake at 2:00--- #andthatmyslice.
