Tomorrow #sol19

For the month of March , I will be participating in the Slice of Life Challenge (#sol19) sponsored by Two Writing Teachers. I will be slicing each day for 31 days inspired by my work as a literacy specialist and coach, my life, and my fellow bloggers.  This is day 31.  My 201 blog post. 

Tomorrow #sol19

March 31, 2019

Tomorrow I wi31-day-streak-with-borderll wake up and while there might be words

I won’t rush to get them on the page and out the door.

Tomorrow I will read any number of things but they probably won’t be blogs that spill off the page and into my heart.

Tomorrow stories may fly into my brain and possibly my notebook, but they might not make it out into the world.

Tomorrow,  I won’t hear about Ari and Wren.  I won’t receive a spark.

Tomorrow I’ll reflect on a month of writing.  What do I notice this year? 

Tomorrow I’ll finally change my blog name, not just a reading teacher anymore…

Tomorrow I’ll have coffee and run errands, but the stories will still percolate.

Tomorrow will seem like every other day to most people

But to some people, it will seem a little bereft.

  1. So true! April 1 will take some adjusting. New routines. This is a sweet reflection. All so true! Your posts have filled me up this month. So many great things to think about. Thank you!

  2. Great post! I sensed the “challenge” of The Challenge in the first half and the growth in the second half. I loved how you’ll change your blog name and how stories will still percolate with coffee.

  3. Yes! I was just realizing that I won’t quite know what to do with the words that will continue to flood my mind without the push to throw them out into the world.

  4. Love this simple reflection! I am so thankful that so many of your words and stories made it out into the world! The line “Tomorrow stories may fly into my brain and possibly my notebook, but they might not make it out into the world.” tugged at my heart strings! How many people’s words NEVER make it out into the world! How lucky we are that we have a place and we choose to let them free! Yay, susan! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I know that some people move to daily poetry writing in April. I will miss the daily connections but I don’t think I have energy to do another challenge. The year will pass quickly though, and in no time we’ll find ourselves on the doorstep of another March writing challenge.

  6. Now I’m crying!!! This is so true – I always feel bereft on this day. It is an incredible journey and I am so grateful I get to share it with you. Your writing is gorgeous, your mind is amazing, your voice is authentic, your teaching craft is adept, and your reflections are inspiring. Tomorrow …

  7. What a great final slice for 2019. As my first year in this challenge, I am very grateful for readers and WRITERS like you. Thanking for sharing not only parts of your day, but slices of your life that have positively impacted mine.

  8. Bereft is how I always feel too! At least it’s only one more day until Tuesday! I am reading posts this morning, stuck with my own, trying to work through my complicated feelings of, as Sherri said on her blog, feeling humbled and enlightened, with a strong dose of bereft! Since I can’t get my own feelings worked out this morning, I am extra grateful for your post. I look forward to seeing the blog name change (I finally bought my domain and will now perhaps change my blog appearance) and to writing with you on Tuesdays!

  9. Yes…bereft…I’m in such a nice routine now. I wake up, check in on all of my SOLC friends to find out what they are thinking, how life is going, and see what ideas I might borrow for my own writing. Now that feels like it is suddenly over. April will be so different. Once a week just doesn’t seem like enough anymore. Thank you for all of your writing and all of your comments. You’ve been a great writing partner all month.

  10. The tension in this slice between what’s on tap for tomorrow and all that says about today (and preceding days) has my heart thrumming. I’m grateful for steps we’ve shared in this writing journey to date and one that will follow tomorrow.
