midway reflection – solc2018#16

Today is the halfway mark in the Two Writing Teachers’ Slice of Life Challenge 2018 to write every day for the month of March.  Many thanks – MANY thanks – to all of those who work so diligently to make this possible, and who challenge writers to… WRITE!

Time to reflect on how it’s going.

Since I haven’t written much since last March I have had to get myself back into the habit of noticing, pondering, evaluating, and then writing. Definitely a process that needs practice. I feel like I am still finding my voice.

It has been so encouraging to be back in this community of writers – to read their words, to further develop this habit, and then to have others read my words.

I am realizing that I need to be more real. I need to dig deeper, to reveal more of who I am, and to also think outside myself. I will work on that for the rest of the month.

Since I haven’t written in so long, I have several “life events” to share. Although they are not “fresh,” the words may gain strength through time. I hope so.

Looking forward to the rest of the month!

    I write often, but I still don’t always feel like I have found my voice. Voice is such a personal reveal sometimes…and I also know there are some things I just don’t want out there. Not that I have anything horrific – just really don’t like getting too personal. I remember my mother saying to me “never put in writing what you wouldn’t want on the front page of the newspaper”. That affected my writing forever after. Some would say negatively. I sometimes wonder if it was a hindrance to my writing also. But it probably saved me from embarrassment more than once! My writing will forever be guarded, I fear…or maybe it isn’t to be feared…not sure which!
