I am not sure what to write for my first blog for the Slice of Life. (Visions of Dexter sailing out to sea on his boat 'Slice of Life' carrying body parts to drop into the ocean comes to mind...but I digress.) This is all new territory for me and I have doubts on whether I will be able to fulfill this challenge. Of course, I know that I am not alone in this feeling, so I won't use it as an excuse to stop here and spend the rest of the afternoon playing Words with Friends. My friend, Cathy, has urged...or more like nudged me to commit to this. Fears of disappointing her are persuading me to give it a try.
What is the worst that can happen? Will I not be able to write 31 entries? Will I become so obsessed with writing that I ignore my other responsibilities? If I can't think of a topic will my husband wake up at night to find me growling at the computer trying to break through writer's block? But must I think of the negatives! I could open up my creative thoughts that seemed to have retired when I did four years ago. Maybe I will have a great following of readers, waiting every day for my blog to be posted....well, even one follower would be a plus. Maybe I will write something that will inspire someone else, or cause a chuckle, or bring a tear to the eye.
So, now that I have decided to commit to this challenge, I have to figure out how to post it right, using the Slice of Life URL...or whatever that is. (My husband just told me, “uniform resource locator.”) I will need the assistance from my computer programmer husband, Ray, to instruct me on how to do that. Once I know how...the rest will be fun...stressful...rewarding? Probably all the above. I am excited to read the other blogs and write comments and looking forward to any comments I might get.
The time is here! March 1-31...I am ready! (I hope...)
