TWO WRITING TEACHERS
Ten days until the Slice of Life Challenge begins. This will be my first challenge and I am excited, yet scared. I look forward to the challenge of writing every day.
But yet, I am scared. Scared that I won't have the time to sit down and put my words on paper. Scared that I won't have anything to write about for 31 days straight.
Today was hectic. I got home from school at 7:30 this evening and knew that I had my slice to write for tomorrow. Sitting down with my computer, I thought...
I really don't have the time. I have tests to grade, plans to make, and resources to find.
I really don't have anything to write about it. I really don't have the time to sit and think about ideas.
This is what I am afraid of. That panic that a deadline is coming. Being so tired that the words just won't come. That I will write just for the sake of "finishing the assignment" and not necessarily writing words that someone will want to read.
All in just ten days.
For those of you who have participated before, please feel free to leave advice in the comments. I am sure many of us new slicers will learn much from your mentoring.
