#SOL18 Day Twenty-One
The inner-most thoughts from a girl who loves to blog in March and then forgets about it for the next eleven months….
The minute I hit “publish” I am thinking about my next slice.
I published today’s slice and then jumped in the shower. I already had this slice ruminating in my head and it was there under the spray of hot water where I thought of its title.
For 30+ days I don’t look at anything the same way. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING is open season for my next slice.
This includes conversations with and observations of friends, family and strangers. A friend said to me the other day – “I forgot, I have to be careful this month about what I say and do because it could end up on your blog!” Yes, ma’am!
I take more pictures than ever before – they could be the inspiration for my next slice.
I do a lot of re-reading of well-loved books through the lens of a writer. I love dabbling in new and different writing structures in March.
I am more emotional during this time. Memories flood my mind and they just keep coming…
After I hit “publish” I am checking my phone for comments – they make me a better writer.
I start to hit a wall, experience writer’s block, around the end of the second week.
Blogging in March ushers in spring which gives us all many beautiful things to write about.
I am psyched about writing on the days leading up to March 1st and totally spent by March 31st.
I start to get nervous after the first couple of slices that I publish, thinking that I have nothing to write about. What I learn about myself every year in March is that I have so many stories inside of me and they are just waiting to be shared.
