For several years now I have tried to do the Slice of Life challenge. I usually made it for at least half of the month. I love to write and I believe in the power of writing. But for several reasons, I never could get to the end of the month with blogging every day.
One of the reasons, even though not a good one, was that I just ran out of things to write about. I would start out strong and have several ideas and then I would just go blank. Nothing seemed interesting enough in my life to but on paper for someone else to read. Sometimes knowing someone else might/probably will read what you wrote is the incentive to write. Sometimes knowing someone else will read it, scares you to death!
Another, and probably the main one, reason that I never can finish a month of blogging, is that Spring Break always messed me up. I would be going along fine writing every day. Then I on the last few days I would take off for some unfamiliar hotel in a far away city. I would promise myself I would find a computer somewhere in the hotel or nearby library. Well, that never happens. One year I even tried to blog on my Kindle or iphone. That was not successful either.
This year I had it made. I thought I had enough material to write about in writing about all my 43 years of teaching. That got old after about a week. Then I blogged about not knowing what to blog about. That was a new twist on an old problem. Then I found out by just starting to write, my ability to talk and love to talk saved me. I found out I could just write like I talk! I always have something to say! The best thing though, was that our Spring Break vacation starts tomorrow! We fly out early in the morning. AND I now have a new laptop computer that goes everywhere with me! I just need to find wifi and I'm all set!
I am so thrilled that I found my blogging groove and I am hooked again! Thanks for reading my posts, if you have become a fan. Thanks to Stacy and Ruth for hosting this challenge. I am going to try and be a faithful Tuesday follower. Thanks to all those bloggers out there who have shared their posts. I have loved meeting you and reading about your lives, too.
Now, Happy April and Happy Blogging!
