No 'i' in TEAM
As I reflect on the past 15 days of playing the game called the Slice of Life Challenge, I tried on my baseball lenses. I started thinking about how we are all players on the same team. We have supported each other well during the challenge so far and I hope we continue.
Some stats on the game:
Batting average: 16 at-bats, 16 hits=1,000 -I've sliced every day so far. The challenge for me has been the timing as my schedule is never the same every day. Something has come up that has caused the time I would prefer to write-morning-to change because of being too tired, someone else being awake who usually isn't-Nattie- or I had too many other things that needed done first.
Game play: Every day, I arrive at the game with my equipment ready to enter onto the playing field. Everyone else on my team does too. There are rookies and novices in this game-but we are all learning from each other. Whether we've hit singles, doubles or grand-slams, we are learning.
Position: Whether batting (writing) or catching in the field (making comments), I feel supported by my team in every way. I hope we are all having fun at our game.
Shout outs! Thanks to our GMs Stacey and Ruth for leading all of us to the playing field and encouraging through example. Thanks to the managers-Linda, LeAnn, Bonnie and Carol who have fielded questions or concerns in relation to the challenge. Thanks to all of the bloggers-writers! I wish I had enough time to read of all of your slices-I will be going back when I am on spring break.
I am looking forward to continuing my at-bats and being inspired by the moves, hits, and catches of others.
We are all learning to exercise our writing muscles and growing stronger from the game performances every day. I will continue to depend on this team of people for learning and growing as a writer. Thanks to all for the support so far, there is no "i" in team.
