Oops! Where does the time go?

I did so well during the month of March, each day thinking about my slice of life and looking for things to write about and then getting it written and posted. But now each week, I barely catch it. I haven't missed a week yet, but each Tuesday I have a, "yikes! It's Tuesday! I almost forgot to blog my slice of life!" I wonder what is making the difference? Why was it so much on my mind during the challenge- was it because it was everyday and I had a challenge, a promise of a prize? The proverbial carrot at the end of the stick?

I'm not sure, but I do know that this is indicative of how time seems to be flying by. Suddenly it is Tuesday again. Vacation is over, we have only 30 days of school left with the kids. Tomorrow is the second and next to the last day of standardized testing. Mid term reports go out next week. Were does the time go?


  1. I don't know about you, but I need incentive and focus and these challenges keep me engaged. It helps to know too that when you write you will be read.
    I write every morning with the support of writing communities. You just need the time as well,

  2. It's hard to stay motivated and keep writing. I think it helps to know other people are going to comment on your writing (though I'm a couple days late with mine). Having a responsive audience is a true blessing.
