Phew! Made it to the last day of the Slice of Life Story Challenge. I didn’t think I’d be able to keep up with writing each day nor would I even know what to write about for 31 days. It turns out I had too many things to write about. I really empathized with my students that have lists of topic ideas and pages of entries yet say, “I don’t know what to write about.”
I was inspired by so many other bloggers to try different formats or blog about similar topics. I’d start a new post, but not really have my idea fleshed out. I’d struggle to figure out the angle I wanted to take. The result: a bunch of posts with a sentence or two, maybe even a paragraph, all saved as drafts. And now it’s the last day and I don’t know what to write about.
Here are a few of the topics/formats/posts I didn’t write:
• Right now…
• The miracle of FaceTime
• Stepmom life (probably could be a whole series of blog posts)
• Cultural appropriation
• Growing up in a restaurant (One day I hope to turn this into a picture book.)
I guess there’s always the Tuesday Slice?
