I get to do some "real" writing

You know, I've been writing my blog almost every day for just about three years now. You'd think that being able to come up with a post every day would mean that I'd be able to come up with a 500-word article for my support center's upcoming newsletter.

They've asked me to write about what the place means to me, including a bit about who I am and why I am still going there. It's due by Friday, and I wanted to get it in a bit early so that they could check it out first and so I'd have time to do any required edits.

I thought it would be a fairly straightforward assignment but it's kind of turning into a project. It's going slowly. I haven't done formal writing for a while, and I had quite a bit of trouble narrowing my focus. I've got that now - I'm talking about how I am more than my cancer and how I've come to learn that through my different experiences there. It's only 500 words... but it might as well be 5000. Right now all I've got is a bunch of disconnected sentences. Sigh.

Anyways... I'd better get back to it. Wish me luck. And good self-editing.
