I can’t believe it’s already Day 21 of this amazing https://twowritingteachers.org/ Slicing Challenge. As a first timer, this experience is extraordinary. My husband, Jack, asked me the other day, “How do you feel about your blog?” Not, “How’s it going?” Nor did he ask, “Have you run out of ideas?” But how do I feel about it. This was very purposeful.
I replied that it’s almost better than therapy. It makes me think. It makes me learn. It makes me empathize. It makes me laugh out loud. It makes me cry. It makes me smile. It makes me inspired. It makes me a student again. It makes me vulnerable. It makes me public. It makes me take risks. It makes be understand the importance of feedback. And it makes my FEEL.
Jack asked me using the verb feel precisely because he’s a songwriter. He gets it. Writing songs does all these things for him, too. Hence, probably the reason I ended up in therapy and he didn’t. LOL.
But now I get it too. Thanks, slicers and thanks for asking, Jack.
