I’m sitting here in front of my computer. I’m thinking. I’m looking around. I have thoughts in my head, but nothing seems to be fitting together. Piece by piece I’m trying to find my way, but nothing seems to be happening.

I’m looking around. I see two of my three dogs…they’re doing what I’d really like to be doing and that’s sleeping! The house is quiet. This should be my time for a masterpiece with all this quiet. This is a rarity. But I sit here at my computer and I struggle.

What can I possibly write about? Is my life that boring…I don’t think so. I think today is a day I’ve been dreading…I just don’t know what to write about. I’ve read so many others slices and a handful I thought, why didn’t I think of that?? That wouldn’t be fair to write about the same thing…So tonight I sit here and I struggle.

At school when the kids are slicing and they have a day like this, teachers encourage them to try. Just start writing about you don’t know what to write about and see what happens…wow, it may not be a masterpiece, but I think these teachers of slicing and writing know what they’re talking about.

When I sat down tonight, I didn’t know what to write. As I look back at what I’ve written, even though it’s kind of about nothing, I think I did alright.

    You definitely did alright. Sometimes it’s hard to stare at the screen, but the act of writing anything is a success.
