The challenge begins today . . . will I rise up to the challenge and be able to post a snippet of my life or thoughts every day? Will it be something worth reading? I have been pondering this question for the last month. I know I did it last year, but I was on a trip for the last half of the month. It was easy to find something interesting to post about last year. There is no trip this month.
This month seems to loom long as I study my calendar. Each of the orange dots are days I am working in schools, mostly out of town. This is too much, why did I do this to myself? How will I have time to read all the slices and leave comments? When will I have time to plan for the professional development? I am starting to get a sick feeling in my stomach as I look at the challenge of work ahead of me. There is one week that is open for planning, so I see long nights at my desk that week. When all is planned, I will rest easy. Then the challenge will be for me to find something to write each day.
A few days ago I mentioned to my husband that the challenge was about to start. There was a look of panic on his face. He knows all of his actions will be scrutinized as fodder for my writing. What will he do that will spark an idea? Hmmmmm?
Thanks to Ruth’s post (here) I have printed out her suggestions, they will be inspiration when the thinking well runs dry. I think I can, I think I can, no . . . I know I can, I know I can! Happy slicing this month, I’ll be here and I’ll be looking for you. Let the challenge begin!
