Counting tonight, we have 7 more days to slice in this year's challenge, so this is a brief update on how I feel about slicing this year. In a nutshell, it doesn't seem as hard as last year, my first year to participate.
I notice this year, I am not clamoring to find topics as much. I remind myself what this challenge is all about--the plain and simple and what I take from it.
This weekend though I felt I needed a break and thought possibly about not writing yesterday or today just because. But I ended up finding something to write about without too much thought anyway. Well, tonight I realized that we have only 6 more days. I even have some ideas waiting for me. I don't need a break after all.
Do you suppose I've made friends with my writing so to speak? My oldest son Eric, my biggest fan and critic, said I write well about stories from the past and with the free verse. I do feel comfortable writing those. As far as the children's story I'm writing, one of my BONS friends said she felt I was finding my voice since I started thinking of my grandchildren as my audience for this story. So is this all about voice?
Well, hello, Voice, my new friend. We have a lot of work to do.
