SOLC- Slice of Life Challenge


I will link this page up tomorrow. I came to bed for an early night so I am using my phone.

Tuesday again, so soon. I feel like I am leaving lots of slices at the minute with all the daily post challenges.

The days are beginning to blur, it has been a week since my last interview and I remember that jam packed day. In complete contrast today I only had 1 appointment and I forgot about it and had to reschedule! I never do that.

This morning was spent online with work emails & forms. I made a few calls and by evening I had an offer of work. Typically everything clashes. You wait forever and then it happens and you’re already booked. I am booked onto a poetry workshop as part of the literature festival in October and it means being offline for the 1st writing retreat day. There is another stage, an informal interview so they may choose to give the work to somebody else. On the flipside it is a 21 day contract and would pay my monthly outgoings and both mortgages.

What will be will be.

Today I also received the last of 3 Amazon parcels. Enough reading for this month. I am in bed with the first book that came. I need to read them in order… and no, it’s not a trilogy!

They are writing books. I will share this sprinkle of gold-dust with you all… A literary nightcap!

Finish your writing projects and don’t even think about judging them until they are redrafted and polished. Don’t compare your work to the greats. As others have said- ‘look in the mirror, that’s your competition.’

I think teachers say it best. We say it all the time. And it is so basic, even our four year olds understand.

 Always do your best. Try to do your best everytime.

If you’re struggling remember encouragement and praise you received when you tried your hardest. Now you are an adult, accept the wisdom of always trying YOUR best.

Do your best. Always do your best.
