A workman-like slice

Today, I think I've used up all of my inspiration.

The staff will finish the satire issue. I had to tweak a couple of the pieces to lengthen them. Mostly, I just added some fake quotes or did some rearranging to help with the flow. I realized that there needs to be some tweaks to our policy statement, too. I'm going to run that past them tomorrow, as a last minute change. At least two stayed after today to finish layouts. I need to give the entire thing a going over and I'll probably give the principal a heads up, if he's in the building. He's a central character in our little farce, so he should probably know just this once.

Other than that, I had a lovely massage this evening as my "almost made it to spring break and proctored my last writing SOL of the year" treat. I came home and wanted nothing more than to finish reading The Mis-education of Cameron Post, which I did.

So, I'm out of inspiration, but I still wanted to write it down and meet my challenge goal. I've only missed 3 days so far, which isn't bad considering I started a day late.

Some slices, like this one, will be a bit more workman-like than others. But, that's true of some days, too. And I'm ok with that.


  1. Sometimes inspiration is just delayed. I like how you described it as a 'workman-like' which I think we have all felt at some time this month. Your words said it all. Jackie

    1. Thanks, Jackie! I really think just getting it down was half the battle on Thursday. Doing matters.

      Thank you again for dropping by.

  2. This is a great post for the Slice of Life challenge. Because we are recording slices of our lives and this is what this day was like. Your writing is always thoughtful, no matter the content.

    1. Thank you! It was important to record, even if it's mundane. Those moments are universal, I think.
