It’s only week 2 of this AtoZ challenge and I am already struggling. I am struggling to find the time mostly, but also struggling with things to write about for certain letters. But I’m not ready to give up just yet; I’ve enjoyed “meeting” all the other bloggers participating.
For some reason I was struggling with the letter G – ironic since my last name starts with G. Oh I thought of plenty, just nothing I really wanted to write about. It was this letter G that almost made me give up, Hmmm, Give up?
I also thought about the slang everyone uses now: got to instead of have to – I’m an English teacher and I still say got to a lot. I say gonna too instead of going to – it’s just easier.
Genius: I’m not feeling very genius these days. Writing is a struggle for me, as I said can’t even think of anything for G.
I could have written about grading. How that has been the bane of my existence this past week. Grading, the reason why I don’t have time to work on this blog. But no, grading was not something I wanted to write about.
I even came up with a character name: Galander – but it didn’t feel right. But I derived that name, for a a hero, from Gallant – and even with that brilliant G word staring me in the face, my genius couldn’t think of anything to write about. I love the word gallant. I love everything it represents and means, yet I still couldn’t think of anything to write about it.
By the gods this simple letter G is grounding my imagination. This good, great, glorious, grand letter G and I still can’t think of anything to write about. Hmmm . . .
