It is halfway day (sort of).

I am blogging every day in March for Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Story Challenge.

Day 16 Halfway Day

It’s halfway day! Technically between yesterday & today was halfway, but it’s close enough.

I’m impressed with myself – I have a tendency to start off strong and then the motivation dribbles out of me. I have a couple of half-started journals, and the “journal every day” kind always bites the dust about a quarter to a third of the way through. The only time I mostly completed an entry every day was the gratitude journal I did in 2016. Even then a few days were sort of done the following day. (Shhhh, don’t tell…) I may have skipped a few days in the middle of summer, but it was the middle of summer!

I wasn’t sure I had enough in me to fill up 31 days. Okay, actually that’s not true. I know I have enough IN me, but I wasn’t sure it was what I should be sharing. I’ve never considered myself a “very good writer”, and that feeling is the one that stopped me from doing the SOLSC20. And the year before that. And the year before that. 

This year? I’ve just had enough of the crap in the world and thought, “I don’t care if I’m a good enough writer. I’m a writer! And I’m going to try it.” The worst I figured is I’d only write every few days. Or, no one would read it. 

I’m still writing. You are reading this. And I thank you for that.

We've discovered a mutual love of travel. Come along!


  1. Yay! You are half way there and you made me realize we all are- I hadn’t done the math 🙂
    I am so glad you decided to do the challenge, finally. Maybe it takes a crappy year to push you over the ledge, like you say. And don’t you think this challenge, with its community and comments, is so different from those daily journals?
    I like your writing style- clear and conversational, casual with a little passion thrown in.
    Keep going!

    1. This is different than daily journals – probably because of the public nature of it.
      Thanks for the compliment on my writing style – No matter how I try to write with a different voice, this is what comes out. : )


  2. I’ve had all the same feelings about not being a writer. I still don’t think of myself as a writing but this year I’m feeling more like a writer and it seems easier than my first year. Yes, we are more than halfway! No stopping now!
