I stepped into the chilly bonus room and walked over to the mirror. With new motivation to practice, I drilled my treble jig over and over again. I am so close to being able to move up to preliminary championship, the only thing holding me back is my treble jig. As a matter of fact, I’ve been struggling with this specific step for countless months now. After not placing in it three competitions in a row, I’ve developed a deep loathing of this step. Now that the treble jig is the only thing holding me back though, I have to really buckle down and perfect it. As I drilled a specific bit of the step over and over, a wave of disappointment washed over me I realized that I never wrote my slice yesterday. In all of my nerves from Saturday’s competition, I had completely forgotten about writing.
