Slice 8 Musings About the Slice

I was driving home thinking about how my life will be different after this challenge is over. A calvalcade of thoughts entered my mind.

My inner voice was saying that’s crazy.  Why are you having these thoughts when it has only been 6 days?  Which led me to the following question and answer session:

(Q) Does that mean you will miss this?

(A) I think I may go through a bit of withdrawal when it is over.

(Q)Does that mean this is taking up a considerable amount of time?

(A) It does take some time management, but I am not stressed about the amount of time because I choose how much time I spend.  I find I linger as I write my post and recheck it to see if it makes sense.  I linger reading other slicer’s posts.  I eagerly respond to posts that I connect with, laugh about, or touch me.  There are many.

(Q)Does this mean that you will feel lost/sad when this is over?

(A) It maybe bitter sweet. I know there is always next year to return and there is a weekly slice that I can join.

Conclusion:  This journey is affecting me in ways that I did not expect.  Life is good.

  1. I agree – but i will need to eventually catch up on laundry and py the bills!

    It’s amazing what you miss when you didn’t do it before…now this challenge and the writing is part of you.

    I remember my first year of this challenge – when it was over, I had a writer’s twitch the next day.
    But then I just kept writing and writing and figuring out how to fit it in to the rest of my life.

    I completely feel the same way. I am trying to enjoy every sweet moment of this challenge because I know it will be over – too soon. It IS taking up time, but right now just time away from bad TV, so it’s a good thing. I KNOW I will do the Tuesday challenge after this is over, but I still want more than that. This could very well be life transforming for me. And yes, LIFE IS GOOD.

    I like your musings. I like reading what others are writing. I am surprised that I’m not more stressed about writing. It’s worked out good so far.

    I know what you mean! I hadn’t even gotten to the thought about withdrawal yet. You are right. After doing this for a month there may be some withdrawal. It is good that there is a weekly slice of life that continues. Your ruminations gave me more to think about. I appreciate that.
