March 1 - SOL #1
New month, new outlook, new daily challenge!
Over at "Two Writing Teachers", Stacey and Ruth have begun a daily "Slice of Life" for March.
I am a wee bit nervous about this but it is also exciting. One of my goals for 2013 was to write more. I have been writing more regularly but I am not yet in a habit of daily writing. I joined 12 x 12, to help take all those picture ideas I generated in November into scripts. So far I have written two.
March always seems to be brighter, more optimistic, after the dark, wintery days of February. There have been so many snowy days! March brings longer days, March break, spring and Easter. Lots to look forward to.
Now I must change my routine in the morning, so that I can write my slice first thing.
I am not really a morning person. My alarm goes off at 6:45, so that if I need to clear off the cars before my hubby goes off to work at 7, I can do that. If it is not needed, then I grab 10 more minutes of rest.
Then I kiss him goodbye, grab the 2 papers he has picked up off the walkway and start my morning routine :
cereal, juice and read paper 1 (The Toronto Star); shower;
tea and toast and read (alright skim) the 2nd paper (our local paper);
then teeth, dress, make lunch and head out by 8, for the half hour drive to my school.
Today I only read/skimmed the first paper (I tear out longer articles I want to read for after supper)and was ready to type by 7:35. Not bad.
It feels good to have purpose, to carry it out and still be on time! Now if I could only add exercise to the mix!
Have a wonderful day!
