first day back


Lying down in front of the computer, I stare at the blank canvas called a post box, and I just don't know what to write. 

Exhaustion is my friend after my first Monday back to school from spring break. The Easter candies haunt me in my sleep. I enjoyed so much sugar that I'm sure my doctor will want to put me on a diabetes watch list (no joke). Also, I wrote so much over the past four weeks that I don't really know what anyone would care to know about. 

There has been no focus to organize any of these slices. The only theme has been me. Nearly a month's worth of slices of my life. And I have loved it even if writer's block keeps me up, and I won't let it steal my claim to fame of completing five SOLSCs. I need to feel that I can finish something; I can follow through. 

And now, I am still lying on the bed wishing I were asleep.

  3. Shouldn't the theme be you? That's the easiest topic to write about because you have insider's knowledge. First day back from breaks are always hard. Hope today will be easier.

  4. I like your theme. Even when there's nothing to write there's something. I notice when I'm tired, the writing doesn't come as easily-not that writing is easy. It makes me think of what students go through when we want them to write every day...
