Slice of Life: Here We Go Again… #SOL19 #TWTBlog

Every year it is the same.  I convince myself I shouldn’t do it.  I list all the reasons it is not a good choice.  All the reasons I don’t have time.  All the things I should be doing instead.  And then it is March 1.

I am pulled.  I can’t stop thinking about it.  It is a nagging that won’t go away. My fingers are drawn to my keyboard.  They need to write.

Once again, it is March 1.  It makes no sense.  It is not advisable given all that is happening (and is always happening) in my life.  But writing grounds me.  This community lifts me.  This month makes me a better writer, a better teacher, and a more connected person.

I know it’s late, but this seems to be how I roll with the March Challenge.   I am in and I cannot wait to connect with all of you.

THANK YOU – Two Writing Teachers for hosting, inspiring, nudging, and dedicating your time to sustaining this community!!

    I have read so many posts today that expressed the same sentiments – I said I wasn’t going to do it! But here we all are! I love the words “writing grounds me. This community lifts me.” Those words are so true! Happy writing!

    Glad you are jumping back in, Clare. I have had these exact thoughts. I’m always wondering how I can do it with everything going on, yet I’ve never regretted doing it. It is a game changer for me. We’ve got this!

    I agree – it makes no sense to write daily during a busy month of March, But does everything have to make sense? The mysterious pull of SOLSC is powerful, and this is like going on an adventure, It may not make sense but it is exciting, and so worth it.

    Everything you said… it ground me, it informs me, it challenges me. It feels like developing a really good habit again, cleansing yourself of all of those ideas you want to write about and don’t. Thanks for encouraging me to do it.
