When I’m on vacation, it takes me a few days to get adjusted, to settle in. It takes a day or two to sleep past 5:30 am, to relax in the morning, to get out of the routine. The next part of the vacation is the best. I get into a new groove, and learn how to live with this new, more relaxed, more flexible, slower schedule. But then the end of the vacation looms near, and I start to worry. I’ll miss this way of being. Will I be able to get back to the work routine, but still hold onto some of what I’ve experienced over the vacation? Today is Day 27 of the SOL Challenge. I’ve written a post each and every day this month. I’m proud of myself. I’m in a writing routine. I’m coming up with ideas. I’ve found other bloggers to follow and who follow me. My writing is getting better. I’m enjoying the whole experience. But what now? When this challenge ends in just a few days, will I continue my writing habit? Should I keep writing every day, or go down to once a week (with the expectation that I will craft and revise some posts to make them better)? Will the Slicers I follow keep writing? Will this community continue on? I certainly hope so. It’s part of me now.
