I’ve just finished up the Slice of LIfe Challenge, a challenge where we blog for 31 days, sharing slices of who we are to our blogging community. It’s a time of stress, much thinking, and noticing the things that go around you during the month. Sometimes, a relatively small event at home or at school can lead to a great blog. Othertimes, it’s like pulling teeth to find something, anything to write.
So for the past month, I’ve watched, I’ve learned, and I’ve written. It’s always an experience to push yourself beyond what you think capable. The community of writers there is just wonderful and it’s always a time of great writing and great comradery between educators.
But, at the end of each one of these challenges, I always wonder, what’s next? More writing? Less writing? Finding my dang notebooks? 🙂
In the end, I’ll keep writing because I’m not sure what I’d do if I didn’t. This has become a blessing and curse, a place for a mind dump, but yet, a bit of an addiction as well. So, you’ll see me pop up on Tuesdays and Fridays, then whenever the mood strikes me.
I’ve got much more to say, much more to feel, and much more to do. I hope you keep reading, commenting, and that find your voice as well.
And in the words of President Bartlet: What’s next?

What’s Next? You are right…after 31 days of routine, I felt a bit let down yesterday. No blogs to peruse and read with my morning coffee, no comments to check for throughout the day, and I even had a story idea which I did write about on my family blog. There’s always April Poetry month…but I’m not very good with poetry, so it will be SOL Tuesdays for me with an occasional poem thrown in. At least I had your Friday post pop up for my morning coffee. LOL Have an enjoyable weekend.

I agree with you – for me, I like the idea that I’ve gotten to a “what’s next” mindset rather than a “got that over with!” mindset.
As for me, keep writing. I’ll be readin’!
