As this month stretches out before me, I’m just not sure I can do this. I’m not sure I can write for 31 days straight. Again.
I’ve been struggling to write once a week for the past…well, forever, so how will I pull this off?
Sheer determination, hopefully.
March is a hard yet awesome month. It’s hard because the spring semester is stretching before us, seemingly without end. It’s awesome because we do have Spring break, and I have at least two fun events to attend. I wrote about both of them last year, so I will attempt to address them from a different angle this year. This weekend I will be going to the Alabama Horse Fair in Montgomery, and in three weeks my friends and I will be heading to Lexington, Kentucky to attend Road to the Horse. Which will be AMAZING.
It’s not all fun and games this month though.
Today I attended a memorial service for a good friend’s mom. I am heartbroken for my friend and her family, and I wish there was some way to help her.
Grades are due next Friday, which means I’ll be stressed for a week or so as I make sure grades are updated, kids ask a million questions about make-up work, I grade essay revisions, and listen to kids whine about their poor grades.
My students are starting argument essays next week. It usually ends up being their best writing of the year, but man is it a grueling process. Several weeks of research, planning, prewriting, writing, revising. Yeesh.
My husband and I are currently in the process of deciding on buying a house. Needless to say, my stress is high. Should we do it? When do we put our house on the market. There’s so much to be done. Paperwork stacked on the table. Ahhhhh!!!
So, here we go, another month of adventures, ups and downs, and of course writing.
Wish me luck as I try to push on for 31 days of writing.
