The first slice is always the hardest, I think. There is this uncanny pressure to write something profound when embarking on the month-long journey.

I don't really have anything though. I have barely written anything in several months in comparison to how much I am used to writing, so this every day thing is truly intimidating to me. Maybe it will help me get out of this shell I've crawled into. Either that, or I will truly hate my life come May.

I say May because directly following Slice of Life Month is National Poetry Month. I seriously don't know how I'm going to make it. I just don't have the words right now. I've been feeling a new energy coming about though, so maybe it will all work out. Things usually do.

But all of this is a first world problem, so I will survive. I will write and will survive. Plain and simple.

Now, I just need to think of some ideas for what to write tomorrow!

  1. I was trying to draft something profound for Day 1 too--then abandoned it and decided to do a "What's In My Notebook" list piece to take some pressure off! It's really daunting to commit to a daily publishing challenge when you haven't written much in the past months. I haven't been writing either, so I feel your pain! I'm planning to borrow several ideas from Michelle's excellent Pinterest board of Slice ideas: https://www.pinterest.com/michellenero/slice-of-life-story-challege/
