When you write a blog, when is it time to panic?
When you don’t have a topic . . .
When you REALLY don’t like what you have written . . .
When you are past 30 revisions according to WordPress but the post seems to be pretty pathetic . . .
When today is the day to post, and life happens . . .
When the water line bursts . . .
When the computer shows the blue screen of death . . .
When you have assignments to read and comment on that you SHOULD do before writing your next post . . .
When the snowstorm knocks out the power and internet AGAIN . . .
When you are at a “state” meeting and time for writing is so very precious . . .
When you hit the “Publish” button instead of the “Preview” button . . . (as I did on Sunday)
When your #OLW15 is “Focus” and all sense of focus is lost!
How do you get back on track when you have lost your focus and/or believe that your writing has slid off the edge of the cliff?
Do you panic or do you “write on” until that magic returns?
How do we teach students to focus and write on?
Tuesday is the day to share a “Slice of Life” with Two Writing Teachers. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here. Thanks to Stacey, Anna, Beth, Tara, Dana and Betsy for creating a place for us to share our work.
