Two Writing Teachers.
I've been laughing at myself today. It's the first day off of school that I've had in a long time that didn't involve being sick, having a sick child, a doctor appointment or an in-service. I have been looking forward to it for some time now...a whole day home with my kids to do whatever we want together.
When I started the SOL challenge at the beginning of the month, I noticed that I had to always squeeze in time for my writing and posting, usually during my breaks at school. Then, later, after the kids were in bed, I could go back and read as many slices as my eyes would stay open for.
This is all fine and so far I really haven't had any trouble deciding what to write about each day (my biggest fear at the beginning). During the week, there is so much material to use if I just keep my eyes open for it. The weekend days are easy because I can be more leisurely about the whole process.
I've been looking forward to this day off and thinking how easy it would be to write today, on this day-long vacation. Instead, I've been struggling for my topic today. But instead of feeling dread, I have been laughing to myself about it all day.
It's just ironic that on this day where I can do whatever I want whenever I want I can't think of something to say? Funny. And then I realized that THIS was my topic today. Just when I thought I didn't know...there it was.
Nothing fancy today, just a day off. :)
