Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for providing space for writers each week. On Sunday, I sat down to prep for the SOLSC19 challenge. I discovered a couple years ago that if I prepare a template: logo and a shout out to TWO WRITING TEACHERS, that I am more likely to get my writing accomplished.
I realized, HOLY COW, this starts on Friday. Where did February go? At one point I felt that it was slower than January and now it’s the end of the month. It’s my eighth year of participating in the challenge.
So I created a new logo for the SOLSC19 Challenge:
I’ve also been thinking about the things I can write about for the month. a sort of priming the pump. I find keeping a list around is helpful. This is what I’ve written in the past:
Poetry Rocks: Performance Poetry I miss this guys
My brother (birthday March 15)
How my job is evolving How retirement is evolving
Books I am reading
Responding to quotes
Remembering my dad (birthday March24)
Gardening or how my yard is attacking us Condo Gardening Downsizing/ Condo living
Hitch hiking off of other posts
Adding to the list:
Response to Photos
Family Fridays Poetry Fridays Thinking about National Poetry Month
Attending the AWP conference the end of the month ( Association of Writers and Writing Programs)
First year of retirement and I should have lots of time, right? I have managed to fill the number of days I wish to sub each month. I’ve blocked out the rest.
I decided on a break from the Welcome Wagon this year. I enjoy checking in with the new writers and will still just not as part of the Welcome Wagon.
Are you ready? Hope you will stop by in March.
