Join us at Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge.
Have you ever had a day when you knew exactly what your slice needed to be but you weren't at liberty to share? Not yet...
Well, then you can imagine how I am feeling right now.
It started when I felt the haptic tap of my Apple watch during my first morning read aloud.
The text said, "Can we talk at your plan time?"
I felt the full furnace blast starting in the pit of my stomach and rising rapidly.
I stilled myself. I knew it was coming.
I even had a pretty good idea what it was.
I just didn't expect it to come like this.
I had to calm myself, I had to return my state of mind to where I was just a few minutes prior.
I can't do anything now. I have to wait until my plan time, five hours away.
I forced myself to focus on the 26 seven-year-olds in front of me.
They're what truly matters now.
Everything else will have to wait!
I walked into the meeting, she smiled, "Just take a deep breath."
Yep, here it is, just as I predicted.
Now, I am pondering what it will be like.
What I will need to do to prepare.
I wonder how it will feel?
Is it me?
