When I began thinking about the A to Z challenge, I thought for a long time about what I wanted to write. I tried to think of ways to find neat things about the English language with each letter. And then I thought, what if that letter didn’t exist? So I am doing an abbreviated version of my Life Lessons series that I normally do on Fridays, but without using the letter of the day. What would life be like without that letter? Let’s find out...
I have nothing to write about, which is sad because this is day six in the A to Z challenge. There is a long way to go. I guess you could say I have Writer’s Block.
It was somewhat scary, staring at the blank page, knowing I had a deadline to get my blog up and knowing I had no idea what to put down. Normally, I have my blogs written out several days, or more like a couple weeks in advance. This daily blog challenge has me scrambling a bit more than usual.
Normallly, I know what I am going to write when I sit down, but not today. Which begs the question, how should we handle being brought up against the unknown? There are several options. We can respond with terror, determination, or rebellion.
Terror many times makes numbs us until we do nothing. Determination sets us up to dig in the trenches and battle our way through. Rebellion tends to draw us in the opposite direction which isn’t always the best thing for us.
Obviously, I’m choosing to battle through – given that I have a post up today. How do you react when you come up against things you aren’t prepared to see?
