Silent and almost menacing.
OK. I give.
The screen calls me to “slice”. It is the beacon of light in the room. Coffeeless. Not yet awake. Calling. Who knew that I had finally found the setting that kept it awake? No longer sleeping after two seconds of inattention. No longer at rest.
Time to think and slice. Fingers nimble. Sleepy eyes semi-focused.
Mentally Rehearsing. Today it was about finding an idea that came from fingers on the keyboard. Fingers moving and a mind ready, waiting and anxious for that first cup of coffee promised after the slice was published.
What’s your “slicing” routine?
And where are your ideas coming from?
(And a reminder if you get stuck, from the Dirigible Plum, “10 Forms to Try When You are Stuck During the Slice of Life Challenge.”
