As I write my final post for the #SOL18, I wonder “Where to next?” The picture represents many places I’d like to go next, but it is merely a selection from the Free Photo Library offered by WordPress. Which, by the way, THANK YOU WORD PRESS, for providing the pics because many nights they were my writing inspiration.
I’ve learned that although I am a good gatherer of writing ideas, I still shared the “blank stare” at the “blinking cursor” that many Slicers also identified. The words didn’t come easy many nights. When they did, I found myself reading & rereading, writing & rewriting. It took a long time many nights, which aided in my procrastination of grading, laundry, dishes, and the other noxious life requirements.
However, I’ve also learned that I really do enjoy writing. I want to share my thoughts or simply think things out on my own. Whether people commented or not, I delighted in seeing my ideas take shape. Of course, this is my hope for my students as well. I hope to use this SOL experience as a springboard for them to jump in as well. After all, they are WAY more motivated to sit in front of the computer!
So, as I sign off for now, I’d like to THANK ALL THE SLICERS who provided wonderful opportunities (& feedback) for me to learn, laugh, and collect more ideas or understanding of our profession and humankind. Lastly, THANK YOU TO THE LADIES WHO STARTED ALL OF THIS SLICING! What a unique and supportive environment you have created to inspire us all to keep writing! I have appreciated the platform and your organization to keep it going. I’m still not sure which way to go now, but I have so many more arrows on my post. All I have to do is pick one!
