First, I am 99% positive I’m doing SOL writing wrong. At this point, I think I’m finally realizing the power of writing in my life. I’m sure I’ll never write a book, and if I can ever get my act together enough to try to write an article or something, it’ll most likely be something about my teaching. And really, me sitting down to do that? Chances = not good.
Instead, right now I’m looking at all these pieces of writing as slices of my life. Little slices about how I feel about my life right now. I don’t know if I’m deep in the middle of a quarter-life crisis or something, but I am a hot mess I need to write these thoughts/feelings/experiences out. Maybe that will help me see things in my life more clearly? I don’t know. (I do know I’ll probably be horrified if I ever look back and read these! Ha, I’m scared to go back and reread my writing from last year.)
So, similar to last year, my main goal will be to just write for these 31 days. I did it last year, hopefully I can do it again this year! A smaller goal of mine is to write a few “real” Slice of Life posts throughout the month, as well. AND to focus more on the positives in my life. They’re there, I just need to see and appreciate them.
