I desperately want to close my computer and head up to bed. Yet, I have this nagging feeling of committment; forcing me to write so that in two days I can claim that I accomplished the Slice of Life challenge.

Tonight, I just don’t have it in me to dig deep. Digging deep makes me have feelings I try so desperately to avoid. I don’t want to go there. I don’t want to allow the feelings to surface. I don’t have the energy to work through the feelings. I don’t want to go there and I don’t want to write.

So, here I am . . . not digging deep. Scratching the surface, yet not making room for those feelings, not giving the feelings a platform. I am not going to write!

I made it through another day, “Faking it til I Make it!”

. . . until tomorrow!

  1. Just two more days! You can most definitely do it. We all have those days when we just don’t want to show up, when it would be so much easier to close the laptop and go to bed, but the commitment we’ve made brings us back to our writing.
