Today is day 15 of the month long writing challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers. This is my second year participating in this challenge. Thank you for this supportive community
I usually write my slice the day before and schedule the posts to go live in the wee hours of the morning. But here I am sitting at my computer writing this post this morning and hoping a few words come to me. I don't lack for ideas, rather I lack focus and clarity. The thoughts are churning in my mind for what to write about: yesterdays storm? my neighbors? receiving help? This is us? They all seem like such easy topics to write about, yet I can't quite make them work. Maybe I can't write because I procrastinated and waited until this morning to get this done. I must admit I am a little fuzzy because I stayed up too late to watch the season's ending of a favorite show. I figured I'd have a delayed opening with time to write this morning. But now here it is 7am and I have to rush out the door for a jam packed day at school. It's now or never.
I have to write! I have to write! Get it done the clock is ticking! Hurry!
Is this how a student feels writing an on demand?
Addendum: The Two Writing Teachers added two new badges to add to our slices. Funny how these were released today. I am adding both badges to my post this morning because of my lack of focus today, but typically I am a planner!
