Newbie Here

Okay, I’m here and I’m finally, FINALLY, doing this. I mean, I only set up my WordPress account FOUR months ago!!? Honestly, I have thought about writing a bunch of times these past several months, and every Tuesday morning when I got the SOL reminder emails I thought to myself, “Oh, maybe I’ll be able to fit that in later.” However,  I never did. It really is so easy to allow life to get in the way and I’ve been doing it for way too long.

So, my very late New Year’s Resolution is to make the time to do it!  It’s February vacation week and since I’m not working today there was no excuses. There was NO way I was going to let another Tuesday pass me by!

This first “slice” is my accountability post. It is where I make a promise to myself that I will start making the time for me and my writing. Just like I force myself to get up every morning at 5:00 am to workout before the craziness of my life begins, I need to have the same commitment to my writing. I mean what better way to really hold myself accountable than to jump right in and join the March Challenge??!!! I’m ready! I’m motivated, I’m excited, and I’m going to do this for myself. Can’t wait to get started, to get to know everyone, and to learn from you all.

  1. Congratulations and welcome!!! I was in your same position one year ago. I wasn’t sure how I would fit slicing into my life as a full time teacher and parent of three (two of which were one year-old twins). But I just jumped in and did it, and I’m so glad I did. Writing became an important part of my daily routine, and I’m sure it will be the same for you :). Looking forward to getting to know you more in March!

  2. I’m right there with you! I tend to write in “creative spurts,” which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I’m focusing on building a writing habit. Creativity begets creativity, so I know building the habit will change my “creative spurts” to more of a constant “creative flow.” Are you on Twitter? Let’s be accountability partners!

  3. Welcome to the SOL community. You are starting a fantastic writing adventure. It won’t always be easy, but when you show up, write, share and connect, it brings joy. Looking back at the slices you collect will be wonderful. I like how you call this slice an accountability post.

  4. Welcome! I was in your shoes two years ago, and I know i don’t need to tell you it’s worth it! I started with the March challenge and have been hooked since! Glad you’re taking this leap, too!
