Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" to the
Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
As writers, we know the importance of noticing things in our world and listening. This past week, I kept having a nagging feeling to check the deadline for a guest blog post that I volunteered to share on an author's blog. Imagine my surprise, no horror, when I finally looked up the email to discover that the "November deadline" (my mind was thinking mid-November) was actually not later than November 1. Last night I opened my email account to discover a pleasant note from the author with this polite request, it would be great if you could get me the post by Thursday! This polite request sent me in search of a scapegoat for my current predicament, and you, my friends, became the sacrificial offering. Without your nudges each week, I would never have arrived at the point where I thought I had something worth sharing with other teachers. Wish me luck! I'm off to vanquish my November nightmare.
