SOL 3/10 Ten Days of Blogging!

  10 of 31 for the Slice of Life Challenge from Two Writing Teachers
Ten days of blogging for the Slice of Life challenge have passed.  I have really enjoyed the challenge so far.  It has made me really think about what is happening in my life and how I can put it into words.    I have always loved to write, but have never really considered myself that good at it.  I have so many ideas running in my head, but when I go to actually put those ideas onto paper nothing seems to work.  I write sentences, only to erase them over and over because they don't sound right or they don't really explain the feeling I want them to.  I explain to my students all the time that writing is really about the revision process. That is where the real work takes place, and it is really true.  It is where the frustration lies for me as well.  Self doubt plays the biggest role here, I think. That nagging thought that no one will want to read what I have to say.  That feeling that it isn't good enough to publish for the world. My students struggle with this too, so I can empathize with them daily.  I've accomplished ten days of blogging so far, and look forward to the rest of the month of the challenge.  I keep pushing myself to write those thoughts and feelings down, and hope that it gets easier to do every day.  Something tells me that it never gets easier, but I'm sure going to try anyway!
