Today is Slice of Life Tuesday, the weekly writing challenge, hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”
My break from blogging was necessary although it was longer than I thought it would be. I am glad to be back, especially to SOL.
I started my return with a new challenge “August Break” from Susannah Conway a few days ago. The challenge is to share a photo in response to the prompt posted each day. A second challenge from Carol Munro offers a writing challenge with that prompt.
On my blog I am sharing a photo and a response to the photo/prompt. I am also using the writing prompt in a journal.
I have had several months of a writing drought – yes there have been a few stabs at writing and recording story ideas. The routine of writing has been gone for a while. I am hoping this challenge will help me return to daily writing.Routines can be so easily interrupted and then such a challenge to reinstate.
When my husband was hospitalized in early April, I could not predict his long recovery nor my lack of desire to write or create art. But he has just returned to work on his old shift (7-4) and I am hopeful that my new found desire to write and create will continue.
A new writing challenge begins today as well. “Find Your Story” challengeis Jennifer Blanchard’s brainchild and will help develop a basic plan for NaNoWriMo, in seven days of daily prompts.
Photo Prompt for Aug. 25: Green
