I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to commit to the Slice of Life writing challenge again this year. This is my 4th year to participate. If you want to join, check out the rules here.
Truth be told, I love to write and I don't take the time to write like I used to. I used to keep a crafting blog and I posted almost every day. I still keep an art teacher blog, but I only post a few times a semester.
I always love to look back at old posts on this blog, as most of them are personal stories and accounts of things that I don't have a record of anywhere else. I just wasn't sure if I really wanted to commit to writing every day. I feel like I am barely committed to exercise, getting plenty of sleep, preparing healthy meals, flossing, and all of those other 'important' things that you are supposed to do every day. Adding another time consuming thing into the routine is a little daunting.
But here I am. Hopefully I will have enough posts every day and things don't get redundant.
I sat down a couple of weeks ago and made a little list. Some of these won't make sense to anyone else, but they are good story starters for me. I also found a great link on twitter to a blog post with tons of ideas.
If this is your first year, I suggest making a list of ideas to pull from. Also, if you have a block of time each week, start a rough draft of a couple of posts....and then refine them each day....it is easier than starting from scratch at 11:15 p.m. and dealing with writers block.
I also went through my iPhone and organized a bunch of pics from the last year on google drive, so I will have some images to include on my posts. Some of the photos will be sources for blogs as well.
Buckle up, people. Enjoy the ride!!!
This is my 'slice of life' blog.
