Love-Hate Relationship

Once again, I find myself staring at my computer with only 30 minutes until the Slice of Life deadline.  

Do I have any idea what I am going to write about tonight, NO.  

Do I even know where to begin writing, NO.  

Do I even want to write this slice, NOPE!  

I do know how I will feel in six hours if I wake knowing I didn’t slice – –

frustrated . . .

discouraged . . .


If I spend the next 20 minutes complaining about writing, will it count as a slice?  

If I simply write about how much I despise this challenge, will it count as a slice? 

If I write something about nothing, will it count as a slice?

Tonight, my 20 minutes of writing about nothing and complaining about how much I despise this challenge will count as a slice.  

Slice of Life, we are in a love-hate relationship.  

As much as I hate the challenge, I love the satisfaction of hitting the ‘Publish’ button!

  1. Love/hate is right. You sliced. Boom! Pat on the back. We all hit that wall; I hit mine last night! But this isn’t a nothing slice. It’s a written vent session internalized. I liked it 🙂

  2. Unfortunately, I seem to barely make the cut-off time myself. I plan to do it all day long and it just doesn’t happen until I’m down to the wire. There are eight days left…maybe one of them will be an “early” post. Way to make having nothing to write about into a thoughtful post.

  3. You are so clever. I think I may have enjoyed this more than you enjoyed writing it, but, honestly – I can’t tell! And that, I believe is the magic of your mastery. #lovedit

    With Warmest Regards,

  4. Georgia, I like it. We can all relate too. I think you used some of your minutes to make some lovely formatting too. I would chalk this up to a success, and you got to wake up the next day not frustrated, discouraged, or defeated, but satisfied and successful. Good work.
